The 2021 Film Festival was at the Old Market Hall – October 15- 17th and at Kinokulture – October 22-24th

We were delighted to return with our Festival in October 2021, which was a great success, with good audience figures and the usual lovely atmosphere

We looked forward to seeing you all again. It was, to say the least, an interesting time since our last Festival!! But we were back – and not just to the Old Market Hall in Shrewsbury, but also to another favourite venue- Kinokulture in Oswestry.

Thank you for your suggestions and ongoing support. From June we started putting our Programme together and we hope you liked the choices we made.

Of the 7 films at the OMH, 2 were documentaries and 3 of the others were foreign language films (French, Brazilian and Georgian) with English subtitles. At Kinokulture, we had 3 feature films and 3 shorts. It was not easy to choose the short films: there are a lot of talented film makers out there! 1 was in a foreign language (Spanish) with English subtitles – a trans story/reflection. We will load the film details on to our archive at the foot of this Page as soon as time allows.

So, there was a good mix for you to choose from…plus, we were delighted that, after the screening of ‘Ahead of the Curve’ (at the OMH at 1.30pm on Oct.16th), there was a post-film discussion/Q&A with Helen Sandler (former Associate Editor of Diva Magazine)

We welcome volunteers to help with all aspects of the Festival; don’t be shy – get in touch. We very much appreciate the enthusiasm of our sponsors and donors, that make it all possible

The Festival this year was also made possible with support from Film Hub Midlands through funds from the National Lottery. Film Hub Midlands support people to watch, show, and make films in the Midlands.

As you probably know 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 Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival aim to entertain, educate, challenge and change. We also support and publicise local LGBT events and campaigns.

We look forward to seeing you at future events.
