Thessaloniki International LGBTQ Film Festival

International LGBT Film Festival.


The «Thessaloniki International LGBTQ Film Festival» and its parallel events wish to deal with: the interests, needs and desires of gay – lesbian - bisexual – intersexual citizens (women and men), as well as the difficulties these people have to deal with because of a dominant homophobic feeling and an ideological and implemented social (and individually embodied) hostility.

In order to achieve these objects, the «Thessaloniki Cultural Panorama for the Gender» and the Film Festival supports the cultural expression, the social dialogue and the development of citizen’s depictions.
