Pride Arts & Film Festival 2014 needs you!

Besi Besemar April 21, 2014

Brighton Pride Arts & Film Festival is a celebration of all that is wonderful about LGBT lives in our fabulous city.

Pride Arts & Film Festival

The festival encompasses each and every aspect of our vibrant artist community from the arts to the dance, from performance to film. Launched in 2013, the festival returns this year bigger, brighter and better.

Last years first Brighton Pride Arts & Film Festival was conceived by artist Sean Chapman and was widely recognised as a huge success with with over 20 events taking place over the two weeks running up to Pride itself.

The brand new LGBT festival boasted a diverse selection of exhibitions and entertainment including:

Icons Exhibition at the Brighton Library produced by Hizze Fletcher of Thirteen Art Production which featured posters donated by the Keith Haring Foundation in New York.

• A season of films curated by Jonathan Hyde from the Duke of Yorks and

• A season of events from the Pink Fringe and Emporium as well as LGBT History Tours with Rose Collis as part of it’s packed schedule.

Dulcie WeaverPride Director Dulcie Weaver, said: “We are thrilled to have Hizze Fletcher on board again this year.

“The 2013 Icons Exhibition was one of the highlights of last years Pride Arts and Film and this years Freedom to Live exhibition will once again be one of the landmark events.”

So why does Pride need an Arts & Film Festival?

Hizzie FletcherHizze Fletcher said: “Brighton is a tremendously creative town and amongst the LGBT community there are some incredible artists.

“It’s a matter of course that the creative community would want to be involved in Pride in some way. There is a real need to have some arts culture alongside the party”.
