Queer 80s | Barbican, London | 5-26 June

Queer filmmakers seized the camera to tell their stories. More interesting, provocative and unapologetic depictions of LGBTQIA+ people made it to the big screen.

Superbia Cinema: Neurodiversity Captured on Film | Cultplex, Manchester | 15 June

Superbia Cinema is a joyful celebration of queer filmmaking that aims to uplift the work of talented LGBTQIA+ creatives. This year’s shorts explore neurodiversity and is all about uplifting neurodivergent artists and filmmakers by spotlighting their projects. Neurodivergent people often do not see themselves authentically represented in film and media. This is despite the fact that many are working in the industry, with some undiagnosed and unrecognised. Superbia is a place to discover new movies and meet the people behind these stellar projects.
