18 January 2013, Singapore – The Love and Pride Film Festival at Golden Village is back for its 5th year at GV Grand 29 January – 3 February.

Celebrating LGBT Pride in films from China, Vietnam, Germany and the UK, the lineup of award winning films will be screened exclusively at the festival.

The festival opens with Lost In Paradise. A moving drama of a naïve Vietnamese youth travelling to the big city and the characters that he meets on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City.

In Speechless, a western man is found naked and unable to speak, in a remote part of Southern China. The foreigner befriends the orderly Jiang in the hospital where he is taken, unlocking feelings of love and the mystery of his appearance.

German film Romeos is a cheeky sexual awakening story between transgender male Lukas and the handsome gay Fabio. As the attraction between the two boys develops, Lukas has to decide. Should he tell Fabio who he really is?

Based on the memoir by British food writer and television personality Nigel Slater, is Toast. As a boy, food was the road to his father’s sparse affections after his mother died. And food also leads him to meet a slightly older man who teaches him the value of being himself. Starring that adorable little kid from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Freddie Highmore all grown up and the Queen of Strange Helena Bonham Carter as his chain-smoking cleaner turned stepmom.

Tickets are now available from the box office at GV Grand & online at www.gv.com.sg. Organizers advise patrons to book online so they may contact you in case of changes to the festival programming. Ticket prices $10-$12.
