The Gaze LGBT Film Festival has announced details of the 25th edition of the programme at a launch party hosted by Lead Sponsor Accenture. The launch took place at The Dock, Accenture’s multi-disciplinary research and incubation hub at 7 Hanover Quay.

The festival will take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend at Light House Cinema in Dublin’s Smithfield, with the best in contemporary LGBT films, including work from Irish filmmakers. The Silver Anniversary programme also includes thought-provoking documentaries, discussions and retrospective screenings, with something to appeal to all tastes, all taking place against the backdrop of a weekend of celebration to mark the festival passing such a huge milestone.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Gaze LGBT Film Festival 2017 will celebrate Ireland’s LGBT journey over the past quarter century, and this year’s programme features a selection of films to suit a wide variety of audiences.

The festival will open with the documentary The 34th, which tells the story of the driven and dedicated people who formed Marriage Equality in Ireland and developed it into a highly effective grassroots force with one clear goal in mind – the extension of Civil Marriage to same-sex couples.
