The Festival: 25th London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival

London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival 2011

It may be forced to celebrate its silver jubilee with savage cuts but don’t think for a moment that’s kicked any of the stuffing out of the venerable London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival.

Reduced to just one week of features and documentaries and shorts, the programme this year is if anything stronger than usual, kicking off with Greg ‘Mysterious Skin’ Araki’s newie Kaboom, a perky paranoia movie set on campus among the sexually fluid youth of today. Add the documentary Becoming Chaz on Cher’s transsexual son, a BBC adaptation of Sarah Waters’ The Nightwatch and gay porn star Francois Sagat (the one with the tattood-on hair [it’s a look!]) in his first feature, Man at Bath.

Tickets go on sale to BFI members next Friday (and you know how they fly off the shelves!) and to regular members of the public the Friday after that. Go to www.bfi.org.uk/llgff for more.
