A Fantastic Woman: Now Available to Community Cinemas

Available to book from 21 May

A Fantastic Woman was the latest release to benefit from BFI FAN new release support. Now that it's coming to community cinemas (available to book on blu-ray from 21 May via BFI) just in time for summer Pride events, we're offering a package of support specifically for non-theatrical venues. 

Community cinemas screening A Fantastic Woman in 2018 will receive:

A bundle of customisable flyers and posters

£20 for a Facebook ad

Access to the brilliant range of social assets and BFI FAN marketing pack, created especially for exhibitors.

If you're interested in taking up the offer, get in touch with Alice Quigley at alice.q@watershed.co.uk.

Chilean director Sebastián Lelio follows up his 2013 hit Gloria with this luminous and life-affirming gem about a young transgender woman struggling to live with her own grief - and the prejudice she suffers - after the death of her lover.

When her older lover dies one night, Marina (Daniela Vega in a knockout performance) is left shaken. The aftermath, however, is even worse: instead of being able to mourn, she is treated with suspicion by the police, spoken to like a criminal, and forced to deal with the callous (and violent) reactions of her dead partner's family. Marina is a trans woman and her sexual identity is seen as an abberation, a perversion - so she struggles for the right to be herself - a truly complex, strong, and fantastic woman...

A beautifully compassionate and tender look at the everyday obstacles of trans existence, A Fantastic Woman is a powerful, touching film, winner of the best Foreign Language Film at the 2018 Academy Awards.
