What to Watch at the Upcoming BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival 2015 - Our Top 10

BFI Flare is coming back for 2015 (19 - 29 March) with an exciting line-up offering a taste of the best queer cinema from around the world. Like last year, the films are grouped into 3 main sections: Hearts (films about love, romance and friendship), Bodies (stories of sex, identity and transformation) and Mind (reflections of art, politics and community). The programme also includes short films, classic book adaptations and a series of events.
