We are Brighton & Hove Pride’s official LGBTQ+ film festival, now in our third year.
***Submission are now open for FilmPride 2021!***
Like many festivals in 2020, due to the Covid-19 crisis, we had to cancel our live events and switch to delivering our programme online. We’re proud to have brought our audiences almost 60 fantastic LGBTQ+ short films, documentaries, animations and feature films, along with Q&As with some of the filmmakers. The FilmPride Online Film Festival ran from 17th to 31st August via our partner’s website, latestbrighton.
In addition, we screened a selection of the films in a series of television shows from 3rd to 16th August, on Latest TV Brighton, Freeview 7 & Virgin Media 159, and on 13 local television channels throughout the UK.
In 2021 – things are still unknown when it comes to live events. We’re hoping Brighton Pride will take place, in which case, we’ll be able to go back to physical screenings and we’ll also offer some of the selected films the chance to be included in our local TV shows again (but filmmakers can opt out of this) . If we’re still not in a safe position for live events to take place because of COVID-19, we’ll go online again, as well as on TV. Either way – the festival will go on!
