LesFlicks Film Club across London

Join our friendly group of lesbian & bisexual women for our monthly film and lunch club in various locations across the UK.

Every time a lesbian film shows in a cinema and seats remain empty this reinforces the current myth that there is no audience for lesbian films as seat sales get reported back to the distributor. This makes it harder for future films to get distribution. We are working hard to disprove this by promoting lesbian cinema screenings when we find them and also providing hosted socials to break down some of the barriers that are leading to these empty seats. #WeAreAnAudience

We have an ad hoc London BFI Film Club whenever BFI show a lesbian film and a regular South East London Film Club. In addition there will be occasional ad hoc films when there are any local cinemas that programme a lesbian film. To ensure you hear about all our screenings, and to be able to input into what films we show, we encourage you to join the LesFlicks family.

But the maid has a secret. She is a pickpocket recruited by a swindler posing as a Japanese Count to help him seduce the Lady to elope with him, rob her of her fortune, and lock her up in a madhouse. The plan seems to proceed according to plan until Sookee and Hideko discover some unexpected emotions.
