Leeds Queer Film Festival serves vegan food
Are you in Leeds this week?
If you are, you should get along to some the screenings taking place as part of Leeds Queer Film Festival 2019… and not just for the films!
In excellent news, all of the food served during the festival is vegan.
First things first. Let me share the aims of the festival:
We create spaces to showcase queer cinema with a focus on independent and DIY films. We screen films that elevate and prioritise the voices and work of those most marginalised within our LGBTQ+ communities. LQFF is run by unpaid volunteers and we are not for profit; money raised from our festival goes towards future events and supporting queer filmmakers. We aim to make our events as friendly, affordable, accessible and inclusive as we can. By bringing people together and building links, we hope to strengthen our communities.
Now, what about the food?
All the food is vegan and all the food is EXTREMELY inexpensive. Snacks are usually £1 while a hot meal will set you back between £2 and £3. Devour cakes, samosas, sausage rolls, hot dogs, soup, and curry. There will also be hot and cold drinks.
The festival is unfunded so they rely on selling food to make a little bit of money. The more you eat, the more you’re supporting the future of the festival!
