Tali Shalom-Ezer’s My Days of Mercy opens the Festival on Wednesday 21 March. Powered by stirring performances from Ellen Page (Juno, Inception & Freeheld) and Kate Mara (House of Cards, The Martian).

#BFI Flare - Concussion from Writer and Director Stacie Passon

I was intrigued to see this film by the presentation that it was about a lesbian Belle de jour and an exploration of female sexuality. The story centres around Abby who lives in suburban New Jersey with her wife and two kids. The film begins with an honest and telling description of the drudgery, tediousness and great joy that goes with the domestic routine that kids require. 

#BFI Flare - Kate Bornstein is a Queer and Pleasant Danger

'Kate' Bornstein (born March 15, 1948) is an American author, playwright, performance artist, and gender theorist. Having been assigned male at birth and then receiving sex reassignment surgery in 1986, Bornstein says, "I don't call myself a woman, and I know I'm not a man".

#BFIFlare Review: Dual (Hearts) by Nejc Gazvoda

If you haven't read the write up on this film before watching, the opening scene could make you think that you are about to watch a version of Camp, Glee or High School Musical (which is exactly what happened to me!).

#BFI Flare: Tru Love; Co-Directors Kate Johnston & Shauna MacDonald

Beautifully shot over a Toronto Winter, this sweetly told story creates an unusual love story and journey. The eponymous Tru (Shauna Macdonald) is the typical "Shane", loving the ladies superficially, but not the depth of commitment a relationship would require. It transpires that she has good reason to use sex instead of love to be close to people.

G.B.F - gay teen comedy drama hits the big screen

Tanner (Michael J Willet) and Brent (Paul Iacono) are two gay best friends in high school. Brent longs for the spotlight and believes that coming out will make him instantly popular as this year's must-have teen girl accessory; North Gateway High's very first G.B.F. (or Gay Best Friend). Tanner on the other hand, would rather fly under the radar and finish high school without ever being noticed.

When things don't go according to plan and Tanner is outed instead of Brent, the two boys go from B.F.Fs to instant frenemies. Enter the three most popular girls in school -- queen-of-mean bombshell Fawcett, drama club diva Caprice, and sweet, Mormon good-girl 'Shley, who launch an all-out social war to win Tanner's status-enhancing friendship.
