SHOUT Festival has evolved with its 11th festival programme is taking place entirely online. Aptly named 'SHOUT at Home', the festival features over 30 events and a film programme that speaks to issues relevant to the LGBTQIA+ community right now.

Funded by Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery fund and BFI FAN Film Hub Midlands and sponsored by Southside District, Browne Jacobson, and Galliard Homes, SHOUT aims to produce an inclusive and accessible festival, prioritising the health and safety of the LGBTQIA+ community.

The packed programme includes bespoke digital performances by Barry Fitzgerald and Victor Esses and a special talk with Amrou Al-Kadhi alongside spoken word, Q&A sessions, explorations of culture and identity, glitter and even a bath with a mer-man-maid.

Other highlights include the award-winning Queer House Party, Birmingham's premier vogue house 'HOUSE OF BAB', a takeover by Midlands-based queer experimental music collective QUE.E.F, and a performance by the incredible family inclusive Fantabulousa.

This year SHOUT is working collaboratively with CineQ Queer Film Festival, bringing a new fuller film programme to the festival audiences, some of which was due to be screened when CineQ had to cancel due to COVID-19 earlier this year. The film programme boasts 9 feature films and 5 short film programmes, with titles including one of the earliest depictions of a queer person of colour in Portrait of Jason, the Iris Prize shortlisted My God, I'm Queer, and the BFI Flare selected Pride and Protest.

The main programme is entirely free, whilst the film programme costs just £4 for access to all the films. There are also amazing zines created by Holly Revell from her project 'People Like Us' which are available for purchase throughout the festival.
