2016 Film Festival Programme

The Eleventh Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival will be held on 14th-16th October 2016

The film festival is completely organised by volunteers and we are funded by grants, individual donations and sponsorship.
In line with our mission, the films we screen at the Rainbow Film Festival aim to entertain, educate, challenge and change. We also support and publicise local LGBT events and campaigns.
