Out In The City


LLGFF confirmed for 2012

filmfestivalOrganisers of the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival have been informed that the festival will definitely be returning next year to the British Film Institute (BFI) on the Southbank, and they are also confident that they will be able to expand upon the 2011 programme. In recent years, the festival has traditionally run for two weeks. However, due to budgetary cutbacks, the 2011 event was shortened to six days, meaning far few films than usual could be screened. The truncated event caused great concern amongst film fans that the festival might be wound down, or even dropped by the BFI. However, in a statement issued today by the BFI, it re-asserted its commitment to the festival, and announced that it would be returning for its 26th year in spring 2012. Dates for the festival are still to be set, but the organisers aim to increase the length from this year’s six days, and to present a diverse selection of new international cinema and live events – all held at BFI Southbank.

After being dropped in 2011, industry services for delegates from the UK and abroad will also be returning in 2012, with The Blue Room at BFI Southbank available for the duration of the festival for use by journalists, film buyers, sales agents and other industry professionals.
