Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Fest

The Royal Anthropological Institute and the RAI Film Festival is delighted to team up with Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Fest throughout July this year in celebration of Pride.

The RAI has an extensive catalogue of documentary films which showcase the variety and diversity of human life across the world. Throughout the coming month, we will be holding screenings of 3 key documentaries which welcome us into the lives of different queer communities around the world, followed by a public Q&A hosted by Fringe! (online) to explore some of these central questions of gender, identity and sexuality through the lens of different cultures.

Films will be available to watch for free in advance, through the RAI Player, for a week, and then please join us for the live Q&A sessions every Wednesday at 8pm. You’ll be able to submit your questions/ comments to the panel speakers through an online forum.

This event is part of Film FeelsConnected, a UK-wide cinema season, supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.  Explore all films and events at filmfeels.co.uk
