i set this film drawing blog up to think about my life as a filmmaker – the hurdles of trying to persuade the gatekeepers to take me on – but how often could i draw those holders of the keys – so it’s become a more widespread sketchbook of insights, points of emotion and filmic thoughts on paper with some ink and watercolour

To celebrate the 26th London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival, we have added new free films to Beautiful Things, our landmark collection showing queer British lives on screen across the last century, which can be accessed at pop-in Mediatheques across the UK. New additions include Dream A40 (1965), Lloyd Reckord’s mesmerising underground short given a new lease of life by the BFI National Archive, while Dame Judi Dench and Bill Nighy escape dreary post-war austerity in a crumbling Soho drinking den in tragicomic TV treat Absolute Hell (1991). Contemporary work includes Tick Tock Lullaby (2007), Lisa Gornick’s witty follow-up to her debut feature Do I Love You? (2002), Nathan Evans’ series of short films featuring cult performance artist David Hoyle, and the dreamlike Delphinium: A Childhood Portrait of Derek Jarman (2011).
With over 100 films and television programmes, from Victorian drag queens and singing lesbian highwaywomen to Fingersmith (2005) and The Line of Beauty (2006), Beautiful Things celebrates Britain’s rich legacy of LGBT representation on big and small screen alike.
BFI Southbank’s Mediatheque is the place to explore the BFI National Archive for free. You can also find Mediatheques at Cambridge Central Library, the Discovery Museum, Newcastle, QUAD, Derby and Wrexham Library.

Dip has won a jury award at Osnabruck film festival. It’s the youth jury award for moral courage. It’s great for the film to be read this way – when we were making it and in the edit – I always saw the film as an anti violence film within a thriller genre. There’s this gun that features a lot being bought for revenge and then there’s an ex child soldier from Somalia obsessing with guilt at what he did because of revenge. The two worlds meet on the top of a London night bus. Thank you so much Youth Jury in Osnabruck for catching what this film is about and giving it such an honour.
