QUEER MINORITIES SHORT FILM PROGRAM
APPROX. 60 MIN, NUDITY, VIOLENCE | NO ONE UNDER 18 ADMITTED
Everyone is born with the same right to live and love freely, without fear of oppression or exclusion. Our short films reflect the challenges, courage and everyday triumphs of queer communities in different parts of the world and show the diversity of minorities in the LGBTIQ+ spectrum.
Our goal is a diverse and inclusive society and for this we need the visibility of minorities and marginalized communities in the film and in our midst.
AFTERWARDS: PODIUM DISCUSSION – WHITEWASHING IN FILM
WITH INTERNATIONAL QUEER ACTIVISTS OF COLOR, ORGANISED BY BEYOND COLOR
APPROX. 40 MIN
The film industry has a complicated, often racist history with people of color and queer people. Whitewashing allows the casting of white actors for non-white roles and cis/straight people for roles of queer personalities.
Historically and contemporarily black face, yellow face and red face are used to replace actors of color. These decisions create public stereotypes and imaginations miles away from the realities of people of color and queer people.
This panel will talk about this issues. The discussion will be made up an eclectic group of queer & trans*artists and activists from diverse backgrounds who use Film, Art, Politics, Writing, Teaching, Photography and Performance as mediums of expression towards combating trans- and homophobia & racism.
