The Slovak Queer Film Festival to Celebrate its 5th Birthday
Dtum pridania:: 09.09.2011, Autor: www.FFi.sk

At the end of September, the Slovak Queer Film Festival (FFi) celebrates its fifth anniversary. With its continuation of the Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, originally founded in 90΄s in Tajov, it is the 10th edition of such festival in Slovakia. Between September 28 and October 4, the film fans may see many quality films of Slovak and foreign production in Bratislava cinemas, about a life of a queer community. “Our goal is to disprove stereotypes about people with non-heterosexual sexual and emotional orientation by means of films and film story telling. We would like to decrease the level of prejudice against queer people in Slovakia. And also, we consider it a success, if we managed to communicate the message to gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transpeople about living their lives without fear,” commented Zita Hossúová, FFi Director.

The main Festival venues are the two FK 35 mm screening rooms at FTF VŠMU, Svoradova 2. Similarly to the last year, the organisers are to screen the selection of the most attractive films in Cinema City Aupark. The brand new event are the two entertaining all-night-long screenings in Meteorit Theatre, ulenova 3. Friday, September 30, is dedicated to the Gay Night with, among others, gay musical hit The Big Gay Musical (d. Casper Andreas, USA, 2009). Saturday, October 1, is dedicated to the Lesbian Night, with, among others, very popular adaptation of Sarah Waters΄ Tipping the Velvet (Geoffrey Sax, 2002). Film Nights start at midnight and end at 6 am. Audience can enjoy the films from their regular seats, or from comfortable big quilts. In the morning, breakfast will be ready for them to buy.
Festival patrons are Zuzana Kronerová and Richard Stanke. Milan Ftánik, Mayor of Bratislava, took over the auspices. FFi ticket advance sale starts on September 12 in Ticketportal and Festival partner bars Apollon, Dejavu and BeHappy. Tickets for the night screenings may also be bought via Megazlava.sk.
