Run by the BFI and British Council, this year’s #FiveFilms4Freedom showcases a great line-up of five celebrated short films highlighting important topics within our ever-changing society. The LGBT community is wonderfully represented each year through the BFI Flare Festival and these five shorts will see the unveiling of a campaign day on 21st March in which people are encouraged to watch the films in solidarity with LGBT communities in countries where there are strict limitations.

Available from 16th to 26th March and free of charge to audiences, you can view the list of the films below.
