The 21st edition of the ten-day Brussels queer film festival 'Pink Screens' starts on Thursday 10 November, with productions celebrating different sexualities and genders being screened at cinemas across the city centre.

The festival features an eclectic programme of 110 unreleased LGBTQ long and short films and documentaries, as well as animated and experimental productions from around the world, created by dozens of filmmakers.

"We are eager to welcome you and share ten days of films, exhibitions, debates, parties and many moments of discovery, emotion and exchange that will bring an ecstatic buzz to the team, the LGBTQIA+ community, our supporters, our current and future audiences and the walls of Cinema Nova and the other partner cinemas," stated a press release.

From 11 to 19 November, screenings will take place in the Galeries, Aventure, Palace, Cinematek and NOVA cinemas, as well as in the Beursschouwburg.

A panel of specialists has been put together to speak about their experiences, and an exhibition highlighting artists "who are out and proud and not shy to make a statement" will also be held in the bar of cinema Nova and in the spaces of Cinéma Galeries.

Two 'geulantes' will also be organised, where participants are invited to speak "loudly and proudly" about their convictions, as well as lectures, performances, discussions and drinks in the Nova bar. Meetings and side events with the artists and directors of the festival will also take place.

Pre-sale tickets are available until Wednesday 9 November at RainbowHouse or online (though not for screenings at Cinema NOVA). From Thursday, tickets will be available in NOVA.

More information about the different events as well as the programme can be found on the organisation's website.
