Get To Know on 24th April features curated Queer shorts in response to the inhumane treatment of LGBTQs in Brunei. The last Wednesday of each month TIC Film holds an inclusive, welcoming event for Queers, Binaries and everyone else.

This drop in club is an opportunity to meet exciting guests and highlights the fascinating work tonight’s guest Lata Upadhyaya is creating locally. It is the chance to make new friends as well as catch up with old friends. After guest presentations and screen clips, it will be the time to mingle and socialise.

Our Guests

TIC FILM FESTIVAL

Once a year, we have TIC Film Festival in September. We welcome suggestions of films that you would like to see screened at the Festival. We particularly like to programme less well-known films or those banned in their countries of origin, many of which are international or made by British diverse filmmakers. Audiences will have the opportunity to partake in planned panel Discussions around themes explored in these films.
