The FIRE!! Mostra is the first LGBT film festival in Spain: established in 1995 by Casal Lambda, in Barcelona, it addresses affective diversity in its broadest sense through a careful selection of feature films, documentaries and short films. A selection of art-house cinema and an educational approach are its main characteristics.

Throughout two weeks at the beginning of June - mainly at the French Institute but also at other different indoor or open-air venues in the city -, a wide range of public is invited to enjoy this Barcelona cultural landmark, with stories and testimonials of free people, creators who break barriers and fighters for human rights, all of whom help with love to build a fairer and freer world.

The festival's name is a tribute to the late 20s New York magazine of the same name, FIRE!!, led by the black gay writer Richard Bruce Nugent, portrayed in one of the most iconic films of the festival, Brother to Brother, which we screened a few years ago.

    Though I couldn't attend (with the short "20 meters of love in Montmartre"), I think and have the impression that the festival is very well run. I was regularly updated with news, precisions about the schedule of the screenings, etc. The festival's website is well made. At one point I thought that a member of our crew could go to Barcelona and present the film, and the festival responded very well. So it's good ! Mochas gracias !

    Response from festival:

    Merci, Pierre, pour votre si aimable commentaire! Le festival s'est en effet très bien déroulé, et nous étions ravis de pouvoir projeter "20 mètres d'amour à Montmartre". La projection a eu lieu dans le cadre d'un programme de court-métrages que le public a beaucoup apprécié dans son ensemble, et ce court-métrage tout en particulier.

    Vous trouverez le détail de cette projection ici:

    En esperant avoir le plaisir de collaborer de nouveau avec vous dans le futur, et bien amicalement,
