THE BANGALORE QUEER FILM FESTIVAL 2018
“IT MUST BE LOVE ON THE BRAIN”
At the 9th edition of BQFF, hosted along with our beloved partners the Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan (GI / MMB), we present a staggering 89 films from over 30 countries. Like every previous year, this year’s festival will be breathless, wild, fun, strange and intense. It will put you on social overdrive, because let’s face it: some of you come just to meet your friends. Watch out for our three specially curated packages.
One set of films brought to us by GI / MMB, including our Saturday night Centrepiece, Ein Weg (Paths), comes from the prestigious Berlinale festival in Germany. Another package of LGBT shorts from the UK is brought to us by a British Council international touring programme in association with BFI Flare.
For the second time in our history, BQFF is collaborating with the film curator and archivist Thomas Waugh, founder-director of the Queer Media Database Canada-Québec. He will introduce and screen a package called “I Confess”, autobiographical shorts from the Canadian Queer Film Archive.
BQFF 2018 holds a spectacular lineup of films from all around the world in store for you, and two special performances. Grab space on the gallery, the chairs, the mattresses, the floors, the walls, and get ready for a #wazak ride at the festival!
