Join our cinematic cultural community experience that goes on for eleven days and meet and mingle with filmmakers and visitors who celebrate all aspects of sexual diversity.

But above all enjoy one of the 138 films we selected for you and hopefully you’ll be coming back for more.

Virtually all screenings are in English, or have English subtitles. There are a few exceptions but the listings in the mostly bilingual printed program, or on our website, will inform you about this.
