The 19th Budapest Pride LGBTQ Film Festival opens on January 13th with Der Kreis - “The Circle”. What will await you: 2 locations, a homely atmosphere with almost 30 screenings and 5 talks, a bookstore and an awesome party on Saturday, January 17th at Fogasház.
This year’s screenings of the Budapest Pride LGBTQ Film Festival will be held from January 13th to 18th at 2 locations: Kolor (Budapest 7th district, Király u. 13.) and Hátsó Kapu (Budapest 7th district, Dohány u. 13.). At the new locations you can make yourself cosy and watch movies with your friends and strangers just like you would do at home. Hence the motto of the 19th Budapest Pride LGBTQ Film Festival - “Make yourself at home!”
The film festival launches with the Swiss movie Der Kreis - “The Circle” January 13th at 8:00pm at Kolor, which got awarded with the Teddy Award in Berlin and got chosen for the Oscars. In the course of the week we’ll screen films, which can only be seen in Hungary during the film festival, such as Any Day Now, about having children, Girltrash, a lesbian musical, Boy Meets Girl, which seeks the limits of gender and sexual orientation, To Be Takei, a documentary which tells the story of George Takei, actor and Star Trek-character, or The way he looks, a sensational Brazilian film about the story of a blind gay boy. At Hátsó Kapu we await you with more experimental and short films. The full program of the film festival is available on our website.
Tickets for the screenings at the film festival are 800 HUF for every movie. At the Short film area of Hátsó Kapu entry will be free for all screenings; suggested donation: 500 HUF. Budapest Pride also offers a frequent guest's pass to the film-loving audience - you can watch 5 movies for the price of 4, if you purchase your pass in advance (more information where you can purchase tickets and passes in advance soon). What’s best: we screen almost all films twice.
We invite you to a talk on two of our short films. In a Q&A session David Färdmar, director of My Name is Love, will discuss how it is possible to tell a life story, a trauma or a relationship in only 13 and 20 minutes. Entry to the Q&A is free.
During the film festival you’re welcome to buy books at our bookfair every day from 5:00pm to 8:30pm at Kolor. We’ve collected around 100 books regarding LGBTQ topics - literature and academic literature - which have been published in the past years.
Let’s party together on January 17th at Fogasház to the music of !Szkafander (!aendroid and Legars) and Deck Attack (Cyborg Templar and Infragandhi). Entry before midnight 1000 HUF, after midnight 1500 HUF. The whole income of the party goes to the organisation of the Budapest Pride Festival. Join us, support the Festival and let’s party together!
