Queer film festivals allow freedom of expression and a focus on issues important to the global LGBT community. Film festivals are a great excuse for a vacation or even a quick three day getaway. Every year in London Southbank, the Brits put on a great little film fest with well chosen films from around the world. All in all, the films are very carefully chosen for their content and cinematographic excellence. Now in its 29th year, the festival can draw up to 35, people for its individual events which include screenings, artist lectures and fundraising events.
