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

We are delighted to return with our Festival this October 2021

We look forward to seeing you all again. It’s been, to say the least, an interesting time since our last Festival!! But we’re coming 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 like the choices we have made. We will add more details about the films as we get closer to the Festival. The programme is now ready and films can be booked for screenings at either the Old Market Hall or at Kinokulture . There are a total of 10 films.

Of the 7 films at the OMH, 2 are documentaries and 3 of the others are foreign language films (French, Brazilian and Turkish) with English subtitles. Of the 3 films at Kinokulture, 1 is a documentary and we have selected 3 short films to screen there before the main features. It was not easy to choose the short films: there are a lot of talented film makers out there! 1 is in a foreign language (Spanish) with English subtitles.

So, we have a good mix for you to choose from…plus, we are delighted that, after the screening of ‘Ahead of the Curve’ (at the OMH at 1.30pm on Oct.16th) at approx 3.15pm, there will be 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 has also been 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 the Festival.
