Largest LGBTIQ+ digital drive

Thursday, 25 March 2021 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

The screening of the British Council’s seventh edition of the Five Films For Freedom, the world’s largest LGBTIQ+ digital campaign, will be held at the Oxford Book Store, Bhubaneswar on March 28.

Meera Parida, Soumya Rajan and Olympian Dutee Chand among others will join the programme. The British Council has partnered with the Kalinga Literary Festival which will host the screening of the movies, followed by panel discussion and a poetry session. This year’s programme showcases queer storytelling from India, Spain, Sweden, USA and the UK. The festival’s short film selection includes an Indian film this time.

Titled, Bodies of Desire and directed by Varsha Panikar and Saad Nawab, the movie uses Panikar’s work as the basis for a visual, poetic film capturing four sets of lovers in a sensual celebration of genderless love and desire.

In India, the British Council has partnered with The Queer Muslim Project, South Asia’s largest virtual network of queer, Muslim and allied individuals, to celebrate and amplify LGBTIQ+ stories, voices and people.
