The 27th BFI London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival bursts into spring (well, British spring…) from 14 to 24 March 2013.

The LLGFF will take place right across BFI Southbank, with all screenings dedicated to LGBT content in a packed programme including Opening Night and Closing Night special screenings, celebrations, sponsored galas and a full supporting programme of special on-stage events, weekend late bars, DJs and a new BFI Mediatheque collection. Full details can be found on the Festival’s website.

In its 27th year, the Festival is opening up a debate about its name, responding to the questions around the issues of representation in LGBT community:

A number of films and events will surely be of interest to The F-Word’s readers, including the documentary Lesbiana: A Parallel Revolution that premiered during London Feminist Film Festival in November 2012, and She Said Boom: The Story of Fifth Column, a documentary about the groundbreaking queer feminist art band Fifth Column.
