Five Films For Freedom

March 20 7:00 pm to 8:15 pm

Christchurch Pride, Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū 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.

Join us on Wednesday 20 March at the  Philip Carter Family Auditorium as we celebrate this year’s selection from India, the Philippines, Spain, the USA and the UK.

This is a FREE event.

After the screening, feel free to wonder through the Gallery or stop by the Café for a beverage and kōrero.


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.
