Peccadillo Pictures are the leading UK distributor of LGBTQ+ films. We have teamed up with them to curate a collection of shorts which chronicle aspects of the LGBTQ+ experience in Britain and around the world, focusing on youth-centred issues including coming out, young romance, bullying, as well as providing a celebration of queer representation. The collection demonstrates the extraordinary progress made around the world for LGBTQ+ rights, but also highlights how much work there is still to do.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
