Events take place on important dates of LGBTI activism, such as the Pride Month in June, or the VIH International Day in December. We also organize screenings to other cities and villages for educational purposes, and 2018 has seen the birth of Cinhomo Joven, aiming to open the youngest public’s minds to sexual diversity.
The LGBTQ Festival of short and full-length movies is not our only activity, we also organize extra events during the rest of the year. Here are some of the activities that took place since the last edition of the Cinhomo International Festival:
LGBTIQ Movie Festival at Centro Niemeyer
The second edition of the film festival of the Centro Niemeyer in Avilés took place last year. As a member of the jury, we awarded Girls Lost, a swedish movie also screened in the 2015’s edition of Cinhomo.
LGBTI Pride Month
Iberoamerican LGTBI Festivals’ Meeting
For the third consecutive year, members of Cinhomo attended the LGBTI festivals’ meeting of the San Sebastián ‘s week. A rewarding experience, good practices and new friendships with other festivals on both sides of the Atlantic.
Cinhomo attended the Tic Cultura conference 2017 in Valladolid. During the meetings, aimed at celebrating culture and diversity, we were given the opportunity to give an insight of our work and of the festival. We would like to thank Marta Álvarez, award jury in 2017, for inviting us to the conference.
