International Queer Migrant Film Days

Many people in Vienna are concerned by migration issues and sexual orientation and have to fight both challenges to live up and lead their lives in the city. Movies are a conceivable way to encourage dialogue, visibility and self-confidence. IQMF is a unique event in Europe displaying feature films, short films and documentaries from and about queer migrants from all over the world, this year for the 3rd time from November 7th to 14th, 2014.

After the big success of the two past migrant film days, they come back 2014 bigger and better than ever. 14 movies will be shown on 8 consecutive days, including 10 Austrian premieres. Many guests like directors and actors present their thoughts and intentions to the audience. Additionally, a panel discussion will revolve around prevailing issues regarding to racism and xenophoby in the LGBTTIQ community in Vienna. Finally, DJane Kamikace - well known from Las Chicas and G-Mix will be one of the highlights of the big closing event on November 14th.

Festival cinama: The one and only festival cinema is again Schikaneder Cinema, Schikanederkino, Margaretenstraße 24, 1040 Wien.

We’re proud to present the program of the third edition of the Queer Migrant Film Days in Vienna, taking place from November 7 to 14. It was no easy task to choose films that give insight into queer migrant life. This year’s stories are exciting and representative of the diversity of lgbtiq life. They talk about change, challenge and migration. We join a drag queen of Turkish roots in Marseille, a Palestinian lesbian woman in London, a gay Hungarian football player in Germany, two young women in Slovenia, a Russian in New York, and many others. These are thought-provoking and inspiring films from all over the world.
