Get excited, DIVAs! London’s LGBTQIA+ Film Festival, BFI Flare, has just launched its 2022 programme.
Spoiler alert: it’s looking fabulous! Taking place from 16-27 March 2022, BFI Flare will be returning to the venue for the first time in three years for its 36th edition, and we can’t wait. And if you’d like to take part from the comfort of your sofa, all films will be available to stream on the BFI Player.
So, without further ado, let’s get started! DIVA’s top pick is Girl Picture, a gorgeous anti-coming-of-age film exploring a snapshot in three girls’ lives. Spearheaded by Finnish director Alli Haapasalo, this beautiful picture explores sexuality, pleasure and longing from the perspective of the teenage gaze. It’ll be opening the BFI Flare Film Festival on 16 March, so keep your eyes peeled for the ticket release.
