32nd BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival announces Opening & Closing Night Galas

The BFI has announced the UK Premiere of Tali Shalom-Ezer’s poignant love story, MY DAYS OF MERCY, and the European Premiere of Steve McLean’s stylish and sexy, POSTCARDS FROM LONDON, as the Opening and Closing Night Galas for the 32nd BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival, which runs at BFI Southbank from 21st March to 1st April, 2018.

Powered by stirring performances from Ellen Page and Kate Mara, Shalom-Ezer’s MY DAYS OF MERCY, his follow up to PRINCESS, is a poignant love story between two women from vastly different backgrounds and opposing political views.

McLean’s POSTCARDS FROM LONDON tells the story of beautiful teenager Jim (Harris Dickinson) who, having travelled from the suburbs, finds himself in Soho where he falls in with a gang of unusual high class male escorts ‘The Raconteurs’.

Set in a vibrant, neon-lit, imaginary vision of Soho, this morality tale manages to be both a beautifully shot homage to the spirit of Derek Jarman and a celebration of the homo-erotic in Baroque art.

The 32nd BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival has also announced Pureland Foundation as its Main Supporter for the next three years. Through its grants, Pureland aims to support social, spiritual and emotional wellness and enrich lives through art and music.
