STAND & To Russia With Love 15th November, 12pm
This double bill features two films focussing on anti-gay attitudes in Russia. In STAND, Anton witnesses a fatal homophobic attack in Moscow. Does he investigate at his own risk, or play it safe and ignore the event? In To Russia With Love, it is the opening of the Winter Olympics, and the first lesbian-feminist choir in South-Eastern Europe publish a video expressing their solidarity.
Brace & Fagbug Nation 16th November, 12pm
Brace is a coming out story, in which Adam searches for acceptance. Fagbug Nation takes you behind the wheel of what it's like to drive the once vandalized, now famous 'Fagbug'.
A Last Farewell & The Way He Looks 17th November, 6pm
In this double bill, the films compare and contrast life between the older and younger generations of the LGBT community. A Last Farewell looks at the older LGBT community and examines the myths and mysteries surrounding life and death. While The Way He Looks challenges whether life has really become any easier for younger LGBT people these days
