The 20th Lesbian and Gay Film Festival is showing a series of films from all over the world in various venues around London.

One of the highlights of the festival is The Journey, an Indian film about two women, their relationship and the community’s reaction.

The festival also includes 50 Ways of Saying Fabulous. This is a witty account of growing up gay in a New Zealand farming community in 1975.

www.illuminationsmedia.co.uk

Playwright Harold Pinter videotaped the lecture he gave when he accepted his Nobel Prize for Literature late last year.

The lecture is delivered directly to camera. It is a reflection on his own writing and an attack on the foreign policy of a “brutal, ruthless and scornful” US.

He talks about his work, political theatre, the invasion of Iraq and the US’s crimes around the world.
