Posted by Ultimate Planet on 16 March 2017

BFI Flare is one of our favourite things on the calendar. I mean literally hundreds of women pretty much move into the Southbank for 10 days. In addition to this, there is a mass of lesbian film content available to watch. These two things are quite rare so when they come together, it is lesbian Christmas for sure!

We took a bit of time to find out more about one of the programmers, who has been with the festival for many, many years to find out about the festival behind the scenes. What happens outside the 10 day festival, how many films get entered. You know that kind of thing.

A Family Affair for Jenny's Wedding

Posted by VictoriaB on 23 April 2016

Finally receiving it's UK release, Jenny's Wedding is a family friendly exploration of life after the passing of Equal Marriage in the US and UK.

Jenny (Katherine Heigl) and Kitty (Bledel, better known to fans as Rory Gilmore) are an estbalished couple, they have been together a number of years, settled, like together, still in love - ready to make a lifelong commitment to each other. There's only one snag, whilst Jenny is out in most aspects of her life, she is not out to her family. Much to Kitty's discernment of course.
