This year, the BFI will be hosting the 31st edition of the Flare Festival. The festival will also be part of the wider LGBT50 summer season at the BFI Southbank .



The festival will host the World premiere of British Film Against The Law (2017), directed by Fergus O'Brien (The Armstrongs, Inside Harley Street, Stephen Fry: Out There). The film which will have its initial release in March, looks at Peter Wildeblood, one of the very few out gay men in Britain in the 1950's, over ten years prior to the decriminalisation of homosexual acts in 1967. Starring Daniel Mays (Line Of Duty, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Public Enemies), Mark Gatiss and Charlie Creed-Miles, the drama made by BBC Studios is one that has been anticipated for both its importance and relevance.

In addition to Against The Law, other films joining the festival include HyunJu Lee's Our Love Story, Barry Jenkins' award nominated Moonlight, Anna Muylaert's Don't Call Me Son and Marcelo Caetano's Body Electric. The entire festival calendar can be found here , which includes the 24 short films that will be shown at the festival.



Ticket prices vary from £7.50-£15.20 which can be bought online, over the phone or in person at the BFI Southbank. This information can also be found on the Flare ticket page .

The BFI have also been part of an initiative to develop new LGBTQ talent through BFINETWORK@FLARE.

The BFI itself has a whole host of amenities including restaurants, library and gift shop as well as disabled access and cloakrooms .
