With LGBT History Month coming up next month, it’s time to start planning your community film screenings!

Putting LGBTQI+ films on in your local community is so important, as it allows audiences to experience film that may not otherwise be available, especially to enjoy on the big screen! We have a number of LGBTQI+ themed films on our Booking Scheme including Moonlight, Allure, Kyss Mig, Misfits and more.

If you need some more ideas for great LGBTQI+ films, why not listen to the Queer Cinema episode on our podcast? Our special guest Rico, who runs CineQ in Birmingham, talks about programming LGBTQI+ content and some of the films that are most important to him.

Little White Lies’ 20 Queer Movie Classics You Need to See


Exquisite, stunning, euphoric. Dazzling. Timeless. Beautiful. These are just some of the words used to describe Moonlight.

Moonlight is the second feature film by director Barry Jenkins and has won over critics, audiences and most recently the Academy who gave it the Oscar for Best Picture.

The film follows the life of Chiron, a young black man who struggles through adolescence as he navigates his sexuality, his relationship with his loving but neglectful mother and frequent abuse from his peers. Not only does Moonlight offer a little-seen perspective in film, it is completely unique in its construction, ebbing away from expectation and exhaling like a cool breeze.

From its first public screening in the mountains at Telluride Film Festival and ascending its way to red carpets and critical acclaim, this film has been on quite a journey. Now Moonlight has arrived here with us on the Cinema For All Booking Scheme, courtesy of Altitude, a distribution partner that we enjoy working with to help bring vibrant and unique films for community cinemas to screen.

Understanding the needs of community cinemas is at the heart of what we do and we are always striving to provide the best discounts, benefits and support. Moonlight is not released on DVD and Blu Ray until June and we are thrilled to make it available for community cinemas to screen from 10 March on an early release window.  We are ecstatic to have Moonlight here with us for many reasons but we look forward to you sharing it with your audiences most of all.
