Meet the directors of this year's Five Films for Freedom.
The world’s widest-reaching digital celebration of LGBTIQ+ themed film returns from 18 - 29 March 2020.
Self-expression, homophobia in rural communities, coming out as a teenager, and finding love later in life - this year’s short films look at an intersection of LGBTIQ+ perspectives to explore love and acceptance.

In our film series 'Rebuilding Lives' co-produced with Sandstone Global, historian and broadcaster Bettany Hughes visits two British Council-supported projects in Jordan and Lebanon.
The projects are amongst 51 supported by the British Council's Cultural Protection Fund, set up in partnership with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to protect heritage at risk due to conflict in and around the Middle East and North Africa. As well as protecting vital cultural heritage that is at risk of being lost forever, the fund is also working with communities in the region to create sustainable opportunities for social and economic development.
Fashion Revolutionaries, a partnership between the British Council and Fashion Revolution, is a global programme - now in its second year - that spotlights individuals working from within the fashion industry advocating for vital changes to be made towards a more responsible and sustainable future for all.
