This time nearly a year ago BFI Flare became the world’s first film festival to go digital-only. It happened – somehow – at about 20 minutes notice, with the physical festival falling immediate victim to the first UK lockdown.
BFI Flare is back from March 17-28, still in the same cyber-savvy format but with a few more bells and whistles this time, as well as all the same LGBTIQ+ film goodness.
On the slate are 26 features and 38 free short films representing 23 countries. You probably can’t watch all of them, unless you forego all other activities, and sleep, so we’ve picked a few worthy candidates to zero in on over BFI Flare’s 12 days.
