5th Pink Life QueerFest

January 22 - January 24, 2016

Pera Film in collaboration with Pink Life Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) Solidarity Association is celebrating the 5th edition of QueerFest. Film enthusiasts have an opportunity to watch LGBT-themed films from different countries from all around the world. First edition of the festival was held in 2011 in Ankara.

The festival aims to create new and fresh areas of (self-) expression of LGBTQI individuals and artists and to raise awareness on LGBTT struggle through the use of art; and it creates an opportunity for detailed discussions about Queer Theory.

Although a film festival, Pink Life QueerFest is not only confined to the silver screen and tries to gather the most prominent examples of art works from literature to music, video art, theatre etc from all over the world.

This program’s screenings are free of admissions. Drop in, no reservations.
