Palace Films Release Schedule – June 2020
Greetings from Palace Films.
I hope this finds everyone in a relative state of wellness and good spirits.
2020 has already thrown curveballs enough to last the rest of the decade (/century), and while there is continuing need for a cautious approach to what used to be every-day affairs, we are so happy to see an industry as hard hit as cinema, arts and entertainment, slowly starting to re-emerge. It’s now more than ever that we need to engage with stories that help us understand and navigate our shared existence.
I am hugely delighted to present the new Palace Films Release Schedule as at 3rd June 2020 (attached), which includes our first release upon cinemas reopening, the powerful Scandinavian drama A WHITE, WHITE DAY (July 9).
Please read on for new acquisitions, films coming soon, and further media resources.
