The British Film Festival returns Perth from 10 November celebrating the filmmakers, acting talent and stories from the British Isles with a programme featuring 22 of the most anticipated films of the year - from powerful true stories and literary adaptations to biographies, comedies and documentaries.

The festival opens with a riotous reimagining of Noël Coward’s classic comedy Blithe Spirit starring Dan Stevens, Isla Fisher, Dame Judi Dench and Leslie Mann.

Films will be screening at Palace Raine Square, Luna Leederville, Luna on SX and Windsor Cinema.

Highlights include:

Ammonite, from writer/director Francis Lee is set in 1840s England and stars Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan as a palaeontology pioneer and a young woman and the story of their forbidden love.

Keira Knightley and Jessie Buckley star in the charming and farcical comedy MISBEHAVIOUR about true story feminist protesters who disrupted the 1970 Miss World beauty competition in London.

Summerland, a romantic drama set in World War II and starring Gemma Arterton as an English woman who opens her heart to an evacuee in a touching story of love and friendship.

A Gift From Bob about a stray ginger cat named Bob who provides friendship and strength to a homeless London street musician over Christmas - the sequel to 2016 crowd-pleaser A Street Cat Named Bob.
