PROUD! FILMFESTIVAL | LGBTQ-film i Paradis | OKT 2020

Programrelease 2020

PROUD! Filmfestival præsenterer: Programrelease d. 5. september kl. 19:00 i Øst for Paradis

Trods corona-pandemiens vidtrækkende indvirkning, har vi taget vores forbehold og afvikler vores programrelease for dette års PROUD! Filmfestival!

Det bliver et kortfilmsprogram, som helt unikt er sammensat i aftenens anledning og hvor de enkelte kortfilm ikke videre indgår i festivalens program: Vi skal forbi Italien, England, Grækenland og Belgien, for blot at nævne et par eksempler, samt en tur rundt i de forskellige identitetsbogstav, som LGBTQ+-akronymet udgøres af.

Kortfilmsprogrammet består af:


AYANEH af Nicolas Greinacher:

Set in Switzerland, our story follows Ayaneh, a young refugee from Afghanistan. One day at a public swimming pool she meets Anna and instantly feels attracted to her. As the relationship between the two women develops, Ayaneh is confronted with growing resistance from her religious family.



After two years in the shadows, Victor tests Alejandro for the very last time: either he reveals their relationship to the media or he loses him forever.


HENRY’S HEART af Luna Ferguson (som Joshua M. Ferguson) & Florian Halbedl:

After a near death experience, Henry awakens in an overgrown field and embarks on a reflection of his life by reliving memories of his past loves.

Henry’s Heart is a love story told across time.


SAY IT OUT LOUD af Zaccaria Ofelia Zanin:

Francesco finds the courage to face the truth about himself.


SPARKLING CANDLES af Thanasis Neofotistos:

A young guy, listening to “Power Of Love” on repeat, gets prepared to offer himself as a sex-toy to his boyfriend, as a celebration gift for their 3rd anniversary.



My Brother is a Mermaid is a social realist fairytale about a trans-feminine teenager, as seen through the eyes of their 7 year old brother. Set in a desolate and prejudiced coastal town, the film examines how a child’s unconditional love can be a powerful and disruptive force for good.


HEART TO HEART af Lilah Vandenburgh:

A young girl is scared to make the first move. But her heart has something to say about it. Literally.
