Strangelove FilmFest

Strangelove Filmfest is a yearly event in Antwerp where the public will be taken into the underbelly of  cinema. ‘Strange’, ‘cult’, ‘weird’ and ‘gender’ are the terms used to define a story. The festival offers a very rich choice of movies, shorts, documentaries and classics from Queer Cinema. A treat for the movie lover!

First and foremost a film festival, Strangelove does also offer a tasty platter of music, performance and visual art. Every evening we serve smiles and food (volxkeuken) in the bar where you can sit back and enjoy some gigs, video-installations, theatre, expositions or performances. This unique combination serves a broad spectrum of culture lovers who adore surprises. An invigorating festival for everyone!

This festival is an initiative of Interzone vzw who stimulate and spread audiovisual art.

MIN MAMMA ALSKAR LESBISKA ( MUMS LESBIAN LOVER) a.k.a MLL

#
Director: WILL MOORE.

Min Mamma alska lesbiska or Mums lesbian lover ( MLL ) is an alternate love story between   two women   MAGDA played by SABRINA CHIMEKA  and KATARINA played by SELMA GLASELL whose relationship started when they were at boarding school. Unfortunately for the pair MAGDA was expelled for smoking before their relationship could be fully developed and its not until years later at a chance meeting between the two in Sweden.  MAGDA who is now a born again Christian Film making lecturer is invited on a break to Sweden by a church friend Michelle played by KETORAH WILLIAMS  that it is realised.

Filmed on location in England the film is in both English and in Swedish.

The Film challenges discrimination and the need for rights to be carried out , from Copyright rights , black civil rights , gender rights and lastly gay rights.  It presents the truth and reality of racism even amongst the wealth y and well to do where MAGDA the black lead is not accepted by her peers at the boarding school despite the financial clout being reached by MAGDAs parents.  This reality is further displayed even in the gay and lesbian relationship where KATARINA – MAGDAs love interest decides that it is best not to further develop the relations hip . It further presents conventional views on held by the church on gay and lesbian relationship whilst challenging that view with a twist

Are All Men Pedophiles?

Director: Jan-Willem Breure.
We live in a society that condemns pedophiles, though biological instinct and world cultures throughout history suggest that an attraction to adolescents is as natural as it is unavoidable. The fashion industry on the one hand sexualizes ever-younger girls while those who act on these instincts are reviled. The apparent hypocrisy at the heart of society forces the question: What do we mean when we talk about Pedophilia? Are All Men Pedophiles?
