CELEBRATING DIVERSITY & LGBTQ+ CINEMA 6-16 September 2019
Welcome to the very ﬁrst Saffron Screen Rainbow Film Festival where we will be celebrating LGBTQ+ cinema from around the world across the ﬁrst two weekends in September. Join us for an eclectic mix of outstanding features, short ﬁlms and documentaries, some of which will be shown for free, some followed by Q&As and others presented with local community groups.
The festival aims to enable audiences from Saffron Walden and the wider area to engage with portrayals of historically underrepresented and marginalised communities from the UK and further aﬁeld, celebrate our wonderful diversity and provide a safe, positive space for local members of the LGBTQ+ community.
Festival tickets: Over 30s £7; 30 & under £5*
*except for The Wizard of Oz and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
Weekend festival pass: Over 30s £21; 30 & under £15

The weekend pass (available for each weekend) will allow you to come to any festival ﬁlm over that weekend. You can buy the passes online and collect them at the cinema, but please reserve your tickets for the ﬁlms you wish to attend separately via the box office or Tourist Information Centre (you won’t have to pay but you will then be able to reserve your place) and bring your pass with you at all times.
Across the two weekends, we are becoming a two screen cinema and will be screening ﬁlms and events in the main cinema and in the school’s drama studio (the Studio Screen). Before each Festival feature, we will be screening a short ﬁlm. There will be no adverts or trailers before Rainbow Film Festival films.
