Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival @ Old Market Hall Cinema

Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival, in it’s 12th year, screens LGBTQ+ films. There are feature films, documentaries, International & UK short films, Q & A sessions with visiting speakers/directors. This year, we have a lecture: ‘Looking Awry: Bisexual Desires on Screen’, by Jacob Engelburg, a Film Programmer based in Brighton, England where he runs the queer film strand Eyes Wide Open Cinema. The films reflect LGBTQ+ lives and experiences from around the world. There are stories of celebration, struggle, comedy – there is something for everyone! Audience comments on 2016: ‘Really terrific festival’…’Good mixture of documentary, love story and polemic’…’The variety of films and issues was brilliant’…’I love the atmosphere/the personal feel to the whole event’ So, why not pack your toothbrush and come to Shrewsbury for the weekend?!
