One of the focuses of this edition is the problem of migrants and refugees being ‘different’ in their countries. In addition, the programming includes winning titles in the most important festivals in the world, such as Sundance, Cannes, Berlin or San Sebastián. But most are alternative circuit films difficult to watch in commercial movie theaters.
Taking a hot topic, such as ISIS, the documentary Mr Gay Syria, scheduled for 11 and 12 November at the Borau Cinemateca, shows two Syrian refugees who dream of participating in an international beauty contest and suffer the consequences of being gay in the Muslim world, since the self-named Islamic State maintains a war against homosexuals.
The festival also projects fiction stories, with subsequent debates, focused on countries where being gay is still punished.
A retrospective on the director Roberto Pérez Toledo, known for his short films full of emotion and emotion that have become viral all over the world, is scheduled.
This is a very good opportunity to enjoy movies that touch multiple gay themes. We encourage you to go and see some of the films scheduled, we doubt you’ll have many more occasions to do so.
