Rainbow Umbrella Film Festival

Rainbow Umbrella Film Festival

Thursday, 07 January 2021 until Sunday, 10 January 2021

Following the success of 2020's festival , we are delighted to announce the fourth RAINBOW UMBRELLA Film Festival, which will take place at THE HEN & CHICKENS THEATRE in January 2021. 

The festival is run by filmmakers and aims to celebrate the very best in indie and encourage all aspects of independent LGBT film making.

As well as live screenings, there will also be various networking events to be announced shortly.

The Festival is at The Hen & Chickens Theatre, an independent cinema in Islington, North London and the pub below will be the networking and meeting place.

Festival Director Mark Lyminister has worked with Unrestricted View and been Theatre Manager of The Hen & Chickens Theatre for many years. He has also worked extensively as an actor in theatre, film and TV.

" Rainbow umbrella has been set up to encourage actors and film makers from the LGBT community to have a platform to express their hopes, fears, desires and experiences and share them with new audiences. We aim to allow anyone with a voice, an opinion, a vision, a calling, to be free to write, act, direct and be free to express themselves through the medium of film. From first time film makers with little or no budget to the films with more experience and financial clout, they are all welcome under our umbrella!
We want to share films that show every emotion of someone experiencing life as an LGBT person."
