Every session, you can watch short films straight from our Official Selection, followed by a ‘gezellige’ Q&A with the teams. The Sessions are English spoken, and the films are subtitled in English.
After each screening, we interview the team behind the film and get to know more about their process and vision.
The special guest for this session will be announced soon! Stay Tuned!

Bosnia and Herzegovina, April 1992. The Bosnian Amir, Nada and their daughter Lejla are friends with their Bosnian Serb neighbours. But as ethnic tensions in the country rise and cause a conflict between the two families, everything changes; the war that once felt so far away suddenly comes very close.

Three young queer people share their experiences on what it’s like to deviate from the straight-, cis- norm. Throughout the film, painful experiences make room for a more positive perspective, such as the overwhelming sense of connection with millions of other queer individuals worldwide or the freedom that arises as one can relinquish certain expectations.
