Fringe! Film and Arts Fest

Fringe! Film Festival

Fringe! is a film and arts festival rooted in London’s queer creative scene and welcoming everyone. We’re not-for-profit and run by a team of passionate volunteers.

From feature films to experimental art, workshops to lectures and parties, Fringe! Fest 2013 will be hosting over 50 diverse events to tickle every one of the senses. With our signature blend of eye opening movies, DIY and experimental work, the thoughtful, the provocative and the strange, we’ll be packing out cinemas, art galleries, pop-up venues and basement clubs.
