The upcoming Andrew Scott and Stephen Beresford film collaboration, 'Pride' will not be released in theaters until later in 2014, but already buzz is beginning about the comedy-drama on the gay film festival circuit according to the British Film Institute in an announcement made Feb. 19 about the launch of the 28th edition of their London extravaganza, where the full program was also revealed.

The newly renamed London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival (LLGFF) is now called BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival to “reflect the increasing diversity of the programme," according to the organizers, who have scheduled Beresford, the writer of 'Pride,' to appear as part of the Special Events category. The openly gay former-actor-turned-writer will speak about his part in the process to recreate the true events surrounding an unusual merging of aid for striking miners by gay activists in 1984 Wales. The film itself is not part of the festival.

Brian Robinson, Communications Manager, Archive & Heritage at BFI, said "confirmed is the appearance of Stephen Beresford on stage with me interviewing him." More details are forthcoming.

This year’s festival runs March 20-30.
