Watch Films from Queer Lisboa 16

Watch free films from the oldest film festival in Lisbon, and the only Portuguese film festival dedicated exclusively to queer cinema.

We are again partnering with Queer Lisboa—Festival de Cinema Gay e Lésbico de Lisboa—to bring you over twenty films from its 2012 program for free. The festival, now in its 16th year, is not only the oldest film festival in Lisbon, but it is also the sole Portuguese film festival dedicated exclusively to screening gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and transsexual themed films.

Films will be available from now until the end of the festival, October 5. One particular gem, is Happy Birthday!, an early short by João Pedro Rodrigues, the director of To Die Like a Man who has a new film in the festival circuit this year, The Last Time I Saw Macao, co-directed by João Rui Guerra da Mata. See the full lineup here.
