Upcoming: Queer Film Days in Prishtina and Filmmaking Workshop

Prishtina International Film Festival, the most known film festival in Kosovo, is taking place between the 16th and the 21st of july. As part of the project Youth Artivists for Change, the program will also include a section named Queer Film Days, curated by art.1.

The opening of the Queer Film Days will be marked by the screening of I am Sofia, a film about an italian transgender woman, followed by a debate and a Q&A with its protagonist. The next days will be filled with other queer movies (full program below) plus an extra screening of Upclose and Personal: LGBT Police, a film produced by art.1 and directed by its founder, Chris Belloni, consisting of personal testimonies of LGBT police officers from The Netherlands, Italy, Canada amongst others. Furthermore, there will be a debate moderated by Sudeep Dasgupta (Amsterdam University) with Dutch police officers who participated in the movie and local police officers and activists.

The Human Rights Ambassador of the Netherlands, Marriët Schuurman will also be present for a debate concerning the empowerment of LGBTQ people through the arts and the importance of their visibility in different platforms.

While the festival is taking place, it will also be time for another filmmaking training. This time in Prishtina, a local trainer and the Dutch trainer Nienke Eijsink will embark on an adventure with a group of approximately 10 young people who will learn more about using film for activism regarding Human Rights, LGBT Rights and Gender Equality.
