    What a fam! È stato bellissimo, oltre che un onore, partecipare ed essere accolta da una realtà, e uno spazio-comunità, che permette di parlare, di vedere e sentire la sessualità in maniera libera, politica e fluida. Un festival libero come pochi in Italia, oltre il genere e i generi.
    "No gender, no border"!

    THIS festival is amazing - they do not only heck the p***, they offer a safer space for a whole community. All members of this film festival are more than dedicated, always friendly and find solutions for all approaches. The festival itself takes place in a great, subversive setting and accompanies diverse communities. The program of the festival is very diverse and well curated. My time there could not have been better spent! A shoutout to HackerPFF, all the lovely people there! No gender, no border!
