HISTORY

Piloted in a Polish Palace, this queer and experimental film festival bridges the gap between Bristol, Berlin and Wroclaw by connecting queer and experimental film from emerging talent. Experienced with multi-disciplinary performances by The Palace artists. The Palace International Film Festival emerged from The Palace Collective and Artist Residency in 2017. The aim of this Bristol edition is to give platform to the LGBTQ voice and to explore progressive queer attitudes whilst celebrating the extension of the term experimental. We connect queer work with the non linear and non-conventional  in our Palace laboratory, creating conversations and elevating experimentation for the residents and public to interact with.
