BY SOPHIE GRIFFITHS
FilmPride, Brighton & Hove Pride’s official LGBTQI film festival, was set to take place at The Latest Music Bar in late July, to coincide with Pride week. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival has had to make some adjustments by going digital.
The FilmPride Online festival will run from 17 – 31 August. To find out more and to check out the full programme click here.
FilmPride will also broadcast a selection of the films on Latest TV in Brighton from 3 – 16 August, and on 13 local channels across the country on 15 – 16 August.
Deborah Espect, Festival Programmer and Organiser, said: “Like a lot of festivals this year we’ve had to switch to an online viewing library. But the great news is that it means the festival will be free of charge and accessible all over the world (via a secure webpage).
“As a filmmaker myself, I know the importance of having an audience! We have a fantastic and diverse selection of LGBTQI short films, documentaries, animations, features and music videos, and with almost 60 films on offer – even a section especially for kids and rainbow families – there will be something for everyone.”
