The world’s widest-reaching digital celebration of LGBTQ+ themed film is back!
Every year, British Council and BFI Flare: London LGBTQ+ Film Festival makes five LGBTQ+ themed short films available for the world to watch online for free in support of freedom and equality.
This year, the festival will run from 17 to 28 March, and address themes such as self-expression, homophobia in rural communities, coming out as a teenager, and finding love later in life through its selection of films. This year's short films look at an intersection of LGBTIQ+ perspectives to explore love and acceptance.
Running since 2015, the programme has seen more than ten million people viewing the films in more than 200 countries and principalities, including many parts of the world where homosexuality is criminalised.
