Pink Life QueerFest in Turkey

Pink Life QueerFest in Turkey

January 12, 2018

Pink Life QueerFest is Turkey’s first queer festival. Its 7th edition is held in 2018. Starting January 12th, the festival opens in Ankara and henceforth will tour through four other cities in Turkey until the 26th of March, reaching an estimated total of 6000 visitors. Film enthusiasts have the opportunity to watch LGBTQI+ themed films from all over the world. The festival aspires to start discussions on gender roles, increase the visibility of LGBTQI individuals and attract attention to LGBTQI politics. Visitors can also opt to venture outside of the film screenings by visiting related performances, theatre plays, video-art installations and photography exhibits.

Pink Life QueerFest is one of the 21 projects that were sponsored by Movies that Matter in 2017. Click here to read more about our other supported projects of this year.
