#FiveFilmsForFreedom: the world's biggest online LGBTIQ+ film festival is back!

The world is watching. The British Council, in partnership with BFI Flare, is proud to present the sixth edition of #FiveFilmsForFreedom, the biggest global online LGBTIQ+ film programme. Each year, we encourage people around the world to watch five films in solidarity with LGBTIQ+ communities in places where freedom and equal rights are limited.

From 18-29 March, we'll be sharing five LGBTIQ+ themed short films from the UK, Ireland, Norway and Brazil, available for the world to watch online for free over an 11-day period. Make sure you’re following our channels to be the first to watch the films when they go live on Wednesday.

Watch online and join the discussion on Twitter using the hashtag #FiveFilmsForFreedom!
