It’s with much sadness that we advise Alliance Francaise French Film Festival in Brisbane has been postponed due to ongoing concerns around the impact of COVID-19, the CoronaVirus.

The 31st Alliance Francaise French Film Festival was due to begin tonight and continue until April 14 however, given this morning’s directive by the Prime Minister to ban all non-essential indoor gatherings of more than 100 people, along with continuing concerns about the health and safety of our staff and patrons, Alliance Francaise Brisbane and our venue partner Palace Cinemas have made the difficult decision to postpone the event.

We are grateful to have such a loyal and enthusiastic film-loving community who have supported us year on year and, with your assistance, we hope to be back bigger and better.

Palace representatives will shortly contact patrons who have booked online. Any patrons seeking refunds for in-person bookings can contact Palace Barracks by phone (07) 3367 135, in person or via email  with images of their tickets. We are truly thankful to any patrons who choose not to request a refund and instead donate the cost of their ticket back to the Festival as it will help us cover the immense costs associated with running the event.

Please be aware that there may be a delay in getting through all the requested refunds, so we thank you in advance for patience and understanding.

Our thoughts and sympathies are with all businesses and individuals across the world who are dealing with this unprecedented crisis. May we remain safe and do our best to look after ourselves and our fellow humans.

Media should contact Kath Rose & Associates for the Alliance Francaise French Film Festival at or for any further detail.
