The Pansy Project - at 'Everybody's Perfect' queer film festival

It has an enriched programme that covers LGBT themes as well as human rights and gender issues in general. You can search the festival programme by theme (link below).

With over 20 full length films in English and many short film options, Agnès Boulmer, the festival Director, walks us through the festival's history, ethos and the diverse programme of events...

Paul Harfleet plants pansies at sites of homophobic abuse; discrimination and violence, worldwide. In the making of his documentary by French TV channel Canal+, Paul met his victims and spoke about their stories.

He spoke to Katt on the Mid Morning Mix about the project; about why he chose to reclaim the word 'Pansy' and what the personal effects are having created this project and heard so many difficult stories from those who have participated and contributed to his project...
