Sicilia Queer filmfest

The word “queer” includes both the concept of transversality and diversity, and therefore, refers not only to GLBT issues (gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender) in the strict sense, but to everything that can be considered out, different, divergent. SICILIA QUEER filmfest (International New Visions Filmfest), eleventh edition May 24 - 30, 2021) arises from these considerations. It’s the first and only international queer film festival in Sicily and southern Italy. It aims, through film and audiovisuals, to go against any kind of social discrimination, to support the culture of diversity (sexual orientation, ways of living and thinking, etc.), and to raise a greater awareness of the positive contributions related to the differences.
