Fringe! Queer Film Festival @ East London - various venues

Fringe! Queer Film Festival @ East London - various venues

Since 2011, Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Fest has been an entirely volunteer-run organisation rooted in London’s queer creative scene. In Novembers, and throughout the year, we showcase an eclectic mix of films, arts and events celebrating LGBTIQA+ stories from around the world, welcoming everybody.

Fringe! started in 2011 as a community response to arts cuts carnage, and since then we’ve ‘expanded exponentially to become one of the most innovative and exciting festivals on the circuit.’(Londonist)

From feature films to experimental installations, workshops and lively debates to wild parties, Fringe! hosts a multitude of diverse events to tickle every one of the senses. You’ll see us flooding East London’s cinemas, art galleries, pop-up venues and basement clubs with the powerful, provocative and strange.

As we continue to develop and our Fringe! family continues to grow, some things stay the same: a lot of our screenings and events are free or affordable, we remain open to new voices and ideas, and we’ll always be queer: celebratory but critical as hell.

Our dirty picks from the event include the Brazilian The Whisper of a Jaguar and the Greek Obscuro Barroco.

London International Animation Festival @ Barbican Cinema
Nov 30 – Dec 9 all-day

The London International Animation Festival
(LIAF 2018) 30 Nov – 9 Dec
www.liaf.org.uk

The London International Animation Festival (LIAF 2018) returns to the
Barbican for its fifteenth year with an extensive ten-day celebratory feast of
forums, Screentalks and over 200 of the best recent, historical and retrospective
animated shorts and features from around the world.

The Festival promises to inspire, delight and challenge the notion that animation
is merely for the 3D blockbuster genre, or cute cartoons. Independent animation
is an art form that continues to thrive and develop as a breathtaking medley of
styles, materials, techniques and production – from hand drawn, paint on glass,
collage, sculpture, to some of the more interesting developments in CGI – all of
which can be seen at this year’s LIAF.
