This March will see the annual London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival hosted at the BFI Southbank venue.
The festival has proved so popular in recent years that organisers have increased the length in order to accommodate the strong demand from the public.
A spokesman for the festival explained to Gay Star News: “Due to public demand the LLGFF will now take place over 11 days.
“The festival is a vital meeting place and forum not only for cinema-goers but also the industry, with over 100 attending film-makers.”
Therefore the 2013 festival will run from March 14th to March 24th and will feature a whole host of special screenings and premieres as well as workshops and on-stage interviews. There will also be entertainment events with live music and DJs.
Past years have seen appearances from guests such as Brenda Fricker, Bishop Gene Robinson and Marc Almond as the festival aims to showcase the very best of lesbian and gay films from around the world.
Further details of the upcoming festival will be revealed at a preview event at the BFI London base on February 19th and tickets for all the events will be available on the BFI website in the coming weeks.
The BFI is within walking distance of London Waterloo London Underground station and the mainline rail station so is ideal for those staying in central London hotels. It is also close to a number of other top London attractions including the Royal Festival Hall, the National Theatre, the Tate Modern, the Design Museum and the EDF London Eye.
