The world’s widest-reaching digital celebration of LGBTIQ+ themed film returns from 18 - 29 March 2020.
Five Films for Freedom brings distinctive voices from around the globe to screens wherever you are. The line-up of films, which showcases work by emerging filmmakers from across the globe, has been selected from BFI Flare's programme.
Self-expression, homophobia in rural communities, coming out as a teenager, and finding love later in life - this year’s short films look at an intersection of LGBTIQ+ perspectives to explore love and acceptance.

More about Five Films
A coordinated effort from our global network of over 100 countries will encourage people to watch the films in solidarity with LGBTIQ+ communities in places where freedom and equal rights are limited. The campaign will ask audiences to share the films using the hashtag #FiveFilmsForFreedom in recognition of the fact that love is a human right.
Since the project began, 14 million people have viewed the films in over 200 countries and principalities, including parts of the world where homosexuality is punishable by the death penalty. Working in partnership with BFI Flare: London LGBTIQ+ Film Festival..
