Our search focuses on finding and promoting artistic works that expose a queer point of view which doesn’t establish stereotypes but opens for analysis and reflection.

    My film was in the 2016 edition, unfortunately I wasn't able to be present on the event but the staff was extremely attentive and professional on all of the emails. Other than that, Lucrécia Martel was on the Jury that year, which is only proof of how much this Festival is serious about it's quality. I wish long life to the festival.
