At the heart of the 2021 edition of this virtual BFI Flare will be approximately 25 feature film screenings on BFI Player, with each film available for ticket holders to watch at any time during the 12 days of the festival, with a 4-hour window to start and finish the film. Additional elements include exclusive intros and Q&A’s with filmmaking talent and programmers and English-language features and shorts will be closed captioned and audio described.  The programme of close to 35 short films from around the world will be available for free on BFI Player and available to watch throughout the Festival, whilst Five Films For Freedom, in partnership with The British Council, will return to BFI Flare, making five LGBTIQ+ themed short films available to watch worldwide for free on the British Council Arts’ YouTube channel and on BFI Player.

This year’s virtual edition will also retain its distinctive strands which offer audiences an entry point into exploring the programme: Hearts, Bodies and Minds. A selection of digital talks and events will complement the film programme and will include Screen Talks available for free on BFI YouTube and BFI Facebook as well as extended Q&A’s that will have a discursive element. BFI Flare Screen Talks offer in-depth conversations with some of the world’s most influential LGBTIQ+ filmmakers and on-screen talent.

The BFI Flare Press & Industry Programme will also move online with accreditation opening on Thursday 4th February for professionals working in the film and screen industries.  The Industry programme will focus on delegate networking with dedicated events and a new industry networking platform supported by the High Commission of Canada in the U.K. Press and Industry screenings and the digital viewing library will be delivered on the dedicated virtual press and industry screening platform powered by Shift72.
