Opening night film for Leeds Queer Film Festival 2019

Kena and Ziki strike up a romance while their fathers fight a bitter political battle in a local election. In Kenya, where homosexuality is still illegal, can their connection survive under the pressure of disapproval from their family, friends, and the law?

Rafiki is the first film from Kenya to be selected for Cannes film festival and we are really proud to be the first to screen this groundbreaking film in Leeds.

During this period of social distancing and lockdown due to Coronavirus we advise that you check directly with the organiser of this event that it is going ahead as publicised.

We are committed to making the event affordable for everyone.

We use a sliding scale which allows everyone to afford a ticket that is within their financial reach whilst also ensuring the event can continue each year.

We ask that you be honest with yourself and your financial situation. If you purchase a ticket at the lowest end of the scale when you could afford the higher ticket prices, it makes it harder for us to provide financial flexibility to those who most need it.

Tickets are PAY WHAT YOU CAN between £0 - £6 and are available on the door.

  • Wheelchair access

The venue is wheelchair accessible with a single step entrance with ramp.

Off-street parking is available nearby (charges may apply).

All toilets are for all genders. An accessible toilet will be available.
