A free screening of the film Pride

Students, staff and friends of the University are invited to join us to watch a screening of the BAFTA winning film Pride on Wednesday 4 July 2018.

Based on the inspirational true story, Pride depicts a group of UK activists who work to help miners during their lengthy strike of National Union of Mineworkers in 1984. Pride premiered at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, where it received a standing ovation and won the Queer Palm award. It was also the winner of Best British Independent Film, Best Supporting Actress for Imelda Staunton and Best Supporting Actor for Andrew Scott, at the 2014 British Independent Film Awards. Pride received a Golden Globe nominee (2015) for Best Motion Picture. It was nominated for three BAFTA awards including Outstanding British Film and Best Supporting Actress and won for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer.

We are delighted to confirm that we have several special guests joining us for a Q&A session following the film:

  • Gethin Roberts (played in the film by Andrew Scott), who now works at the University in Library & Student Support
  • Mike Jackson (TBC), one of the co-founders of Lesbian and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM)
  • and Damien Dalton, a poet and writer who was a key figure in the revived LGSM movement in 2014

We will also be joined by two members of Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants (LGSMigrants), a recently formed group inspired by the original LGSM.

There is no cost to attend the screening, and friends and family are welcome to attend with you, but we kindly ask that you book your place.

If you have any questions please contact us on either 020 8411 5050 or LGBT@mdx.ac.uk.
