The BFI FLARE LGBT+ film festival is one of the biggest and best LGBT+ Film festival in the world. Every year we attend the festival on London's Southbank to ensure we bring you a selection for Pride. The standard and diversity of the short films continues to be incredible and break new ground in queer representation and narratives in film that you won't see in the mainstream.
We bring you a selection of the best from this year's festival:
