Fringe! is a film and arts festival rooted in London's queer creative scene and welcoming everyone. We're not-for-profit and run by a team of passionate volunteers. From feature films to experimental art, workshops to interactive walks and wild parties, Fringe! hosts a multitude of diverse events to tickle every one of the senses. With a signature blend of eye opening movies, DIY and experimental work, the thoughtful, the provocative and the strange, the festival packs out cinemas, art galleries, pop-up venues and basement clubs across East London.

Fringe! was launched in 2011, by a group of queer creatives as a community response to arts budget cuts. Our mission is to offer a dynamic, representative and unmistakably fresh alternative to other film and arts festivals.

    Honestly, hands down one of the most well organized, down to earth, important and well curated films festivals in the queer or experimental categories I've ever attended or participated in during my 12 year career. Thank you, Fringe!
