BFI Flare: London LGBT Film FestivalShowcasing the best in new queer film and video, the BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival (previously known as the BFI London Lesbian & Gay Festival or LLGFF) returns for its 28th year in 2014 with an exciting new programme and a new name to reflect the increasing diversity of the festival. The long-running event, the third largest film festival in the UK, opens with the European premiere of Hong Khaou's 'Lilting', a poetic drama of love and loss starring Ben Whishaw. The BFI Flare festival sees hundreds of filmmakers, cast, crew and more than 250,000 visitors flock to the city for a festival programme that gets bigger year-on-year. This year's festival includes over 50 feature films from around the world, an expanded programme of industry events, late night DJs in the bar on Fridays and Saturdays, and concludes with Sophie Hyde's '52 Tuesdays' which won a Best Director Award at Sundance.

 

About BFI Southbank

Originally the National Film Theatre, the BFI Southbank is the perfect film buff's cinema, with three large screens and a smaller studio space showing up to 2000 films a year ranging from classics to independent movies as well as gala openings. It's also the heart of London's many film festivals, and the place to go to see obscure arts films, classics, and seasons of works by great directors. More about BFI Southbank
