Five Films For Freedom is the world’s widest-reaching LGBTIQ+ digital programme. This year’s programme runs from 17-28 March 2021  

The British Council, in partnership with BFI Flare: London LGBTIQ+ Film Festival, makes five LGBTIQ+ themed short films available for the world to watch online for free, over a 12 day period each year. 

The programme, which features work by filmmakers from across the world, is selected from and coincides with BFI Flare. Over the 12 days, we encourage everyone, everywhere to watch the films in solidarity with LGBTIQ+ communities. 

Running since 2015, the programme has received over 15 million views in more than 200 countries and principalities. 

The 2021 selection goes live soon.
