About fivefilms4freedom

fiveFilms4freedom is the world's biggest online LGBT festival. Supported by the UN Free and Equal Campagin,the British Film Institute has made five short films for the annual LGBT festival. The five films are:

Breathe (14 mins). British-Irish film by James Doherty about an Irish traveller who is increasingly concerned that his son is ‘soft’, so sets about toughening him up.
 
Swirl (4 mins): Two girls, young and in love, move backwards through the city in Peterson Varga’s lyrical short from the Philippines.
 
The Orchid (3 mins). A man has something important to tell his son, but can only get through to his voicemail in this film by Spanish director Ferran Navarro-Beltrán.
 
Take your Partners (14 mins). A British film by director Siri Rodnes. Miss Paterson expects Ollie to make an Easter bonnet like the other girls. But Ollie is not like the other girls.
 
Xavier (14 mins). A film by Brazilian director Ricky Mastro about a father who notices that his 11-year-old son pays a lot of attention to slightly older boys. 

The films are freely available online to  people across the world for 10 days. In 2016, the festival's second year, the film was viewed by 1.59 million people in 179 countries.

Coming Out is a community theatre experience that uses multiple mediums to express, question, criticise and ideate on what is, can be and is possible to talk about when we talk of queer narratives.

Entry free and is on a first come first served basis.
