Celebrating gender and sexuality in all forms, the Pink Screens queer film festival, hosted by Genres d'à côté, returns to Brussels! This year, we’ve cooked up a delicious mix of fiction, documentaries, experimental films, as well as short and feature films. Choose from our delectable offerings found at Cinema Nova, and associated venues, Cinema Aventure, Galeries, Palace, and Beursschowburg.
2018 calls for a high-protein diet. With Pink Screens, there’s more than enough to help you meet your daily intake. However, it comes in the form of animal meat – human to be exact. With this, we daringly chose ‘Eat me’ as one of our themes and it’s way more than metaphoric! While bringing out the carnivore in everyone, Pink Screens combines everything with Brazilian flavours. A fertile ground for content matching our topics, Brazil is worth exploring. As part of PINK SCREENS’ ‘Brazil’ theme, we found the best films to showcase the country’s striking contrasts, rich history, and cultural resistance.
The festival doesn’t stop there! We’ll explore the construction of masculinity (and masculinities), amplify ‘queer voices,’ encourage dykes to direct films in efforts of activism, indulge on lemon crepes, embark on a pink candy road trip, hesitate between ‘animal’ and ‘wild’, and transverse football fields invaded by giants from Beijing.
PINK SCREENS is an experience to be lived and shared, offering ten days of films and much more! Programming includes a multifaceted exhibition, engaging debates where you can (politely) shout, and daily parties / random encounters – including the incredible Pink Night. Capping off the festival, this event is a highlight of Brussels’ queer music scene. Is your mouth watering yet?
