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.

Even not being gay and even being frustrated with the political and financial situation, this kind of things makes me proud of my country. I’m really looking forward to see them, thank you :)

Meanwhile in Portugal: “We’re sorry. There are no films for this program available to watch in your country.” Can anyone explain this to me, please?
Hi Mademoiselle, In Portugal we are only allowed to show the films after they’ve screened at the festival, so while the rest of the world can see them all right now, they are slowly being released each day in your country. I’m sorry for the inconvenience!

Thank you Daniel! No inconvenience whatsoever. Actually I think that’s the smartest way to do it in order to motivate people to go to the cinema and, at the same time, it’s a chance for those who can’t make it there to watch the films anyway.
