Sicilia Queer Film Fest

International LGBT Film Festival.

About

SICILIA QUEER filmfest — International LGBT Film Festival and New Visions is a project that aims, through film and audiovisuals, to go against any kind of social discrimination, to defend and support the culture of diversity (sexual orientation, ways of living and thinking, etc.) and to raise a greater awareness of the positive contribution related to the differences. The Festival will promote the artistic and expressive form of the short film and give visibility to independent authors as well as to marginal and experimental activities.

In addition to various non-competitive sections, the festival presents two different competitive sections:

  • Queer Short: International Shorts Competitio. Competitive section for works related to queer issues in a broad sense. Any genre is permitted (fiction, documentary, animation, music video, experimental films) except for commercials and TV jingles and titles.
  • International New Vision Prize: International Fiction Feature Films and Documentary Competition. Competitive section for debut films and second films, for debuting directors or for films considered as innovative under other points of view, not necessarily related to queer issues.

Awards

  • International New Visions Award: a prize of 1000€ (one thousand euros/00) to the best feature film.
  • Queer Short Award: a prize of 500€ (five hundred euros/00) to the best short film.
