Our besties at Lesflicks have announced the return of their film festival – the LFEST Lesflicks Film Festival! After two years of being a virtual event because of You Know What, LFEST returns to Wales so the LFEST Lesflicks Film Festival will be held both online and in real life. Running for three days from Friday 22 until Sunday 24t July in Wales, and then virtually from the 24 July until 31 July, the festival will showcase a specially curated selection of films honouring stories that celebrate women loving women on screen.
The LFEST Lesflicks Film Festival 2022 edition consists of four shorts strands and three feature films. A small selection of the virtual online programme will be available in Wales between 22 and 24 July at LFEST and then the full programme will be made available online to stream to your hearts desire between 24 and 31 July 2022. Passes go on sale on 7 July and tickets go on sale on 24 July.
Lesflicks head honcho Naomi Bennett,said: “I’m delighted to be returning to LFEST in Wales this year, whilst also keeping the festival available virtually online as we have run it the last 2 years. It will be no mean feat but worth it as this festival contains some fantastic sapphic stories and we’re keen to ensure our festival is accessible to sapphic women both in Wales and further afield. Not everyone in our community has the benefit of being able to travel to or attend physical events for a number of reasons so continuing to offer an online aspect to the festival is core to our accessibility aims.”
This year’s programme has been curated by Caroline Seddon, a long-time member of the Lesflicks team. She watched hours of films and pulled together a truly wonderful selection of sapphic stories. Because of the high standard of submissions, and the festival programme represents only a small selection of the fantastic content being made for the lesbian and bisexual community every year.
