Programme for London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival announced
The programme for the 27th London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival (LLGFF) has been announced.
The festival will take place in London's BFI Southbank from 14 to 24 March.
The opening night gala feature will be I Am Divine, a documentary on the outrageous and larger than life cult drag queen Divine (pictured).
The closing night film will be Margarita, about the complicated love life of a Mexican nanny described as a "sexy, modern-day Mary Poppins".
Other highlights include James Franco's provocative Interior, Leather Bar, which played recently at the Sundance Film Festival.
How to Survive a Plague is an Oscar-nominated documentary about the early AIDS epidemic in Manhattan, and Taboo Yardies, a powerful account of LGBT life in Jamaica.
The LLGFF will also host its own David Bowie night, and present events and screening about Pier Paolo Pasolini and Chantal Akerman.
Tickets are on sale to BFI members from 26 February and to non-members from 4 March.
