The Palace International Film Festival

Wednesday, 19 August 2020 until Saturday, 22 August 2020

The Palace International Film Festival (PIFF), in partnership with The Palace Collective will be having its third edition in Bristol, United Kingdom.

Piloted in a Polish Palace as part of The Palace residency, this queer film festival bridges the gap between Bristol, Berlin and Wroclaw by connecting queer, film, live performance art and digital immersive technologies.

Our Bristol edition aims to give platform to the LGBTQ voice and to explore progressive queer attitudes, from sexpositivity to voices from the fringes, whilst celebrating the extension of the term queer. 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.

The Palace International Film Festival is expanding to include immersive digital storytelling and we are looking for Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality to showcase to the Bristol public.


The Palace International Film Festival does not have competitions but will instead become one of our Palace Collective by acceptance, opening up pathways to future collaborations through our networks.
