BFI Flare London LGBT Film Festival
Mar 21 – Apr 1 all-day
BFI Flare London LGBT Film Festival

BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival, formerly known as the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival (LLGFF), is the biggest LGBT film festival in Europe. It takes place every spring in London, England. It began in 1986, as a season of gay and lesbian films at the National Film Theatre for two years, under the title “Gay’s Own Pictures”, curated by Peter Packer of the Tyneside Cinema. It was renamed the ‘London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival’ in 1988. Having been a two-week festival for many years, the festival was shortened to a week in 2011, then increased to 10 days in 2012. On its 30th anniversary, screenings attendance at BFI Flare was up 9% and box-office results surpassed the previous, record-breaking year. Audiences at all events and screenings over the eleven-day festival totalled 25,623 in 2016.

Organised and run by the British Film Institute, all LLGFF screenings take place in the BFI Southbank. Every summer, a selection of feature films and short films shown at the Festival goes on tour around the UK.

Festival de Cannes
May 8 – May 19 all-day
Festival de Cannes

The opening will therefore take place on the evening of Tuesday, 8th May and the awards ceremony will be on Saturday, 19th May.

“Following 2017’s anniversary edition, the Festival is beginning a new period in its history,” says Festival President Pierre Lescure. “We intend to renew the principles of our organisation as much as possible, while continuing to question the cinema of our age and to be present through its upheavals.”

This new schedule will allow us to rebalance the two weeks of the event and to bring new energy to the proceedings.

What is more, starting on a Tuesday will allow us to hold an additional gala evening before the Festival weekend and to organise previews of the opening film throughout France.

Finally, bringing forward the announcement of awards by one day, to Saturday evening, will increase its prestige, while at the same time giving the closing film better exposure.

DMovies will be following Cannes live. Click here for more information about the event.
