A Wisbech cinema will host Fenland’s first screening of a new film about celebrating difference and challenging bullying and prejudice.

The film – entitled FREE – follows the stories of four children as they explore family, friendship and what it means to be yourself.

FREE challenges gender stereotypes, homophobic bullying and language and illustrates the importance of celebrating difference. It has been designed to complement schools’ Key Stage 2 PSHE curriculum.

The screening – at the Light Cinema in Wisbech on 17 November – will be followed by a Q&A session with the film’s internationally renowned director and actor Rikki Beadle-Blair.

Rikki Beadle-Blair has visited Cambridgeshire before for anti-bullying week events and has previously delivered two workshops about FREE to students at Comberton Village College.

The screening on 17 November has been organised by CREDS – the Cambridgeshire Race Equality and Diversity Service – and supported by Stonewall and local LGBT youth charity SexYOUality.
