From 18-29 March, the British Council, in partnership with BFI Flare, are proud to present our sixth edition of #FiveFilmsForFreedom, the world’s widest-reaching 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.

Since 2015, more than 14 million people in 200 countries and principalities have tuned in online, including many parts of the world where homosexuality is criminalised and, in some cases, punishable by the death penalty.

Make sure you're following our channels to be the first to watch the films when they go live on 18 March.
