&PROUD Yangon LGBT+ Film Festival in Myanmar

&PROUD Yangon LGBT+ Film Festival in Myanmar

February 01, 2018

The annual &PROUD Yangon LGBT+ Film Festival will launch its 4th edition from 1-4th February 2018. This year the festival expands its reach with screenings in Mandalay and other towns in Myanmar. The organisation &PROUD encourages discussion around LGBT+ rights and promotes social change and legal reform for LGBT+ communities in Myanmar. To achieve this goal, they will select a large portion of feature length films, including many new films from Myanmar. A total of around 5000 people are estimated to attend these events. To raise attention about the festival, a public screening will be held in a park in Yangoon one week before the festival starts.

&PROUD Yangon LGBT+ Film Festival 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.
