The BFI’s annual celebration of gay and lesbian films returns to the Southbank next month (14-24 March 2013).
The 27th BFI London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival (LLGFF) will open with the European premiere of I Am Divine, a documentary exploring the life of Harris Glen Milstead, best known to the word as the drag act Divine.
LLGFF is sponsored by Accenture, recently crowned Stonewall’s Employer of the Year. This year’s Accenture Gala screening will be Out in the Dark, a powerful love story from Israel set against the backdrop of political conflict.
More than a 100 films will be shown during the ten day festival, including Interior, Leather Bar, How to Survive a Plague and Taboo Yardies, an account of LGBT life in Jamaica.
The films will be screened in three ‘strands’ Hearts (films covering romance, love and friendship), Bodies (sex, identity and transformation) and Minds (films that reflect on or debate arts, politics and community)
