#FiveFilms4Freedom is our global celebration in support of LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) rights. Working in partnership with BFI Flare: London LGBTQ+ Film Festival, the British Council makes five LGBTQ+ themed short films available for the world to watch online, for free, for a 12-day period. The line-up of films, featuring work by emerging filmmakers from across the world, is selected from BFI Flare’s programme.
For films to be included in #FiveFilms4Freedom you must first be selected for BFI Flare: London LGBTQ+ Film Festival. The Festival’s submissions platform is open here until Tuesday 18 December 2018. You can submit online - and it's completely free to apply. FiveFilms4Freedom 2019 will take place from 21-31 March 2019.
