Govett-Brewster Art Gallery/Len Lye Centre and the British Council New Zealand and the Pacific are delighted to host a special screening of Five Films For Freedom, the world's widest-reaching LGBTQIA+ online celebration. A partnership between the  British Council  and  BFI Flare, London’s LGBTIQ+ film festival, Five Films For Freedom makes five LGBTIQ+ short films available to watch online for free anywhere in the world. Running annually since 2015, Five Films For Freedom has received more than 23 million views in over 200 countries. Through the British Council’s global network in more than 100 countries, people everywhere are encouraged to watch and share the films from 13-24 March 2024 in solidarity with LGBTIQ+ communities in places where freedom and equal rights are limited. Join us alongside Pride Taranaki as we celebrate with this year's selection of heartwarming and personal stories from India, the Philippines, Spain, the USA and the UK. The screening will begin at 3pm, followed by a panel discussion and Q & A with members of Pride Taranaki and friends.
