Films for Slovenia’s gay community

Believe it or not, Europe's oldest gay and lesbian film festival takes place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, amidst an otherwise conservative society where the GLBT community largely lives in secret and is overlooked by the mainstream. Organized by Brane Mozetič, a renowned poet and gay activist, the Ljubljana Gay and Lesbian Film Festival continues its tradition of screening films from around the world that promote awareness and tolerance. This year’s 25th edition runs from November 28 to December 6 at the capital’s Slovenska kinoteka; a three-day screening programme (December 3-5) is also taking place in the cities of Celje and Koper.
