The 8th Slovak Queer Film Festival is knocking on our doors! It takes place from 22 till 26 October in two cinemas. Like previous years, Lumiére Cinema will be one of the locations, where the Kafehaus Lumiére will serve refreshments in between the movies. The other spot will be Kino Film Europe, a romantic “boutique” cinema in a beautiful historical house in the heart of Bratislava.
This film festival is not only for LGBTI, but for everyone who is interested in queer topics, for everyone who loves good movies. Like every year, the festival offers several movies recognized on international film festivals from all over the world. As per the information provided on the official website of the festival the American-British comedy, Appropriate Behavior, will give us an insight into cultural matchpoints through Shirin’s role, who is trying to be a good daughter to her Islamic parents, a politically correct bisexual as well as a trendy chick from Brooklyn, but somehow none of the roles lead her to her wish of happiness. Another shoot to be presented is the 52 Tuesdays, where a 16 year old girl shall face her mum’s decision on changing her sex.
The detailed program of the film festival will be available soon. The festival will be also accompanied by discussion forums and parties – as usually.
To be or not to be queer is not a question here! Do you like good movies? There is no excuse as to why you shouldn’t come and watch some at the Slovak Queer Film Festival!
