The International Queer & Migrant Film Festival will again take place in various cinemas in the Netherlands from December 6-13. The main venue of the festival is De Balie in Amsterdam, where a wide range of movies from all corners of the world is scheduled in combination with debates, an Academy program, and the photo exhibition Mr. Gay Syria by Bradley Sacker.

The IQMF is a festival with a high-quality film programming that focuses on discussing and visualizing sexual diversity in different cultures, both in the Netherlands and beyond. In addition, the festival devotes a lot of attention to the stories of people who, due to their sexual orientation or gender identity, had to flee their country.

The festival shows movies from their country of origin and pays attention to their flight story. Thus, on Thursday evening, December 7, prior to Ashad Khan’s movie “ABU: Father,” GLBT refugees will have dinner with their new countrymen. In addition, on December 10, IQMF plans a short film program with a debate on the representation of GLBT refugees in Western movies.

On Wednesday evening, December 6, the festival opens with “I Dream In Another Language” by the Mexican film maker Ernesto Contreras. This subtle movie is about losing a language that only has two male native speakers left. However, the two men in question lost sight of each other years ago.

The festival in De Balie will close on Sunday, December 10, with the program “Queer Faces, Migrant Voices,” in which sixteen GLBT refugees tell their story in a combination of live storytelling and pre-recorded audio. After Amsterdam, the festival continues in Haarlem, Utrecht and Rotterdam.

See for the full program, more information, and trailers.
