#1 – Listen to the big sounds of tomorrow with Notion’s Lockdown

#2 – Bored of Netflix? Try BFI Player for a more refreshing film treat

BFI Player Online and via apps

From contemporary queer classics like Rafiki (pictured above) to fresh comedy A Guide to Second Date Sex, and even an Aladdin’s cave of musicals from all ages, the BFI player is sure to be home to something different to inspire your day.

#3 – Get creative with your home time and help make a lockdown time capsule

From Home

Be part of the Brighton Digital Festival project From Home when you submit your 3 minute masterpiece.

#4 – Write your first screenplay with the help of this free online course

Introduction to Screenwriting FutureLearn

University of East Anglia’s Michael Lengsfield introduces Writing for Screen, including characters, structure and starting (plus, more crucially, finishing!) your draft.

#5 – Cheese, sex & isolation all combined into a hilarious night in

Anna Mann’s Cheese, Sex and Self-Isolation Party Saturdays at 10pm – Twitch

A snooty review from The Guardian’s Brian Logan can’t stop Anna Mann’s unmissable riot of a night in. Guests have included Mae Martin, Christopher Bliss, Olga Koch, Zach Zucher, Sinbad from Brookside and many more offbeat gems. Pete Heat – the devil himself – is a very entertaining magician who rounds off each episode with a bit of wonder (much to Anna’s violent rage…).

If you’re looking for more Edinburgh-style offbeat comedy, try Next Up: a divine Netflix-style service delivering laughs galore.
