The Global Film Village: Raj Roy: “Making Choices: The Beating Heart of Cinema”

by Marla Lewin I attended the Film Festival Summit in Las Vegas and there were many interesting talks and panels presented. Most were aimed directly at teaching how to run and program a film festival. The most important function of the event however was to provide networking opportunities for festival directors and programmers to meet with their peers in a casual environment. We will be posting more reports from this event shortly. First up is a talk by Rajendra Roy Chief Curator ...

Queer Lisboa - International Queer Film Festival

Queer Lisboa – International Queer Film Festival is the first Portuguese Film Festival dedicated exclusively to screening gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and transsexual themed films, a genre known as Queer Cinema. This is a genre that outbreaks with increasing expression in major international film festivals and it’s the goal of Queer Lisboa to program what is more relevant in aesthetic and narrative terms in the worldwide panorama, trying to compensate the fact that the access to this cinema is restricted to the mainstream audience.

The programmed films are organized in the Competitions for Best Feature Film, Documentary, Short Film, School Film (short format) and Queer Art, this last one dedicated to more experimental languages. In parallel to the central program there will be non-competition sections, special screenings, film programs dedicated to a filmmaker, theme or country, retrospectives on the representation of homosexuality in film history, sections dedicated to Queer Cinema subgenres, as well as a set of parallel activities such as workshops, exhibitions, and installations.

Queer Lisboa was created in 1997 and is Lisbon’s oldest film festival. Through the years the festival consolidated its reputation internationally and at this moment it is one of the most recognized festivals of its genre in an European level and worldwide, for the quality of its programming and activities as well as the guests that it attracts.

The Festival has also established privileged relations with some of its European and world fellow festivals, with whom Queer Lisboa regularly exchanges programs, creates formative and cultural interchanges and to where its programmers travel on a regular basis. This network is also fundamental to the promotion of Portuguese cinema abroad. 

In 2015 Janela Indiscreta Cultural Association started in Porto the first edition of Queer Porto – International Queer Film Festival.

Queer Porto will take place in the first fortnight of October and it intends to program some of the most emblematic works, creators and emerging trends of queer film and culture, in a multidisciplinary proposal that articulates several venues in the city, confronting different artistic languages, always in dialog with film.

Queer Porto has a Competition for Best Narrative and Documentary Feature Film, whose screenings take place at Teatro Municipal Rivoli, and also a Film School Competition. The short film screenings, video-installations and performances take place at malavoadora.porto, Maus Hábitos, and Galeria Wrong Weather.

Filmmakers will be in Porto for the festival. Queer Porto will also organize educational activities as well as more ludic activities, seeking to promote the event and to attract different audiences.
