LGBTQ+ Strand

Margate Film Festival is committed to encouraging diversity on-screen and off, celebrating the uniqueness in all of us. Against The Tide brings together a collection of the most talked about queer films of 2019, alongside local LGBTQ+ filmmakers and artists. This year we team up with Margate Pride for a back-to-back Friday, ft British queer shorts, a special Q&A screening of Are You Proud? and camp film fun with The Amy Grimehouse hosting an afterparty. There’s also Kenyan-banned Cannes Rafiki, and the dad who gave birth in Seahorse.
