London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival will be back to 10 days after funding cuts last year

Film fans are in for a treat in 2012 as the BFI London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival bounces back with 10 days of programming.

Arts funding cuts across Britain plagued last year’s festival, meaning that it had to be cut to just six days.

But after cinemas ran at a record-breaking 89% capacity with 16,000 admissions last year the 26th festival will be extended to incorporate two weekends.
