#FiveFilms4Freedom 2017 ran from 16-26 March 2017. The first global digital LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) short-film programme was brought to you for a third year by the British Council and the British Film Institute (BFI).
From 16 March 2017, audiences in London were enjoying BFI Flare, the LGBT film festival. At the same time, people from all over the world watched five films from the festival for free online.
The #FiveFilms4Freedom Global List will be published in July 2017.
Love is a human right
The programme built to a single campaign day – Tuesday, 21 March 2017 – when people everywhere were encouraged to watch and share the films in solidarity with LGBT communities in countries where freedom and equal rights are limited.
In 2016, people in 179 countries worldwide watched the films, with 1.57 million views on websites and social media.
