LGBT History Month Short Film Programme 2021
This February is LGBT History Month throughout the UK, and for the second year running Lesflicks is bringing you another fantastic programme aimed at increasing the knowledge of, and access to lesbian and bisexual film. This years theme is Mind, Body & Soul, and we have two 50-60 minute programmes of short films to engage, entertain and inspire our community, which will be available for free for any library, film club, community group or university network to request to screen during February 2021.
Lesflicks will also be running two events for LBTQ women who don’t have access to a community group and who would like to enjoy these films with other women.
LGBT History Month is celebrated throughout the UK in February.
Access to the two film programmes will be made available between 1 February and 28 February 2021 via the LesflicksVOD platform for free. The programme is also being made available to community groups, charities, libraries and networks in order to run watch party events to engage their communities and offer support to prevent social isolation during the pandemic.
We will hold an online watch party for each programme so you can join us and other LBTQ women from around the world on zoom and connect with your comunity.

Accessing the films
The films are available to free to watch on LesflicksVOD (trailer live now, films will go live 00:01 GMT on 1 February 2021). The zoom event is free to attend but you will need to rent the films to watch them.
Pre-registration is required. This helps us to monitor participants to keep the space safe. Once you register keep the confirmation email safe as you will need the link to enter the event. There is a waiting room on arrival so you can arrive a little early. Guests will be admitted at the start time. If you can no longer attend please cancel so we can offer the space to someone else. Spaces are limited and we want to ensure everyone who wants to attend can. Each event starts with a quick zoom how to.
ZOOM: using online tools and maintaining your safety and security
You may have heard about recent Zoom security problems. At Lesflicks we care about your safety. We only run events using the full safety features. Due to this we have held over 20 events with no issues. We pre-approve all registrations and review all guests in the waiting room before admittance.
