Palace Cinemas is proud to announce the launch of a new festival on Australia’s screen landscape with an annual event designed to showcase the past, present and future of independent cinema from the US – Essential Independents: American Cinema, Now.
From Penelope Spheeris to Kelly Reichardt; from Woody Allen to Alex Ross Perry; from Martin Scorsese to Paul Thomas Anderson; from Sofia Coppola to Lynn Shelton, and from John Cassavetes to Richard Linklater, the American independent film community continues to flourish and produce people, ideas, and cinema with a profound impact on the craft internationally.
