AMOR International LGBT+ Film Festival was born in Santiago de Chile in 2016. In its 5 editions it has spread to different Chilean territories with physical and virtual exhibitions

Focusing on quality over quantity and aiming to show the most interesting and unique titles depicting sexual diversity, this event is meant to be an inclusive space, where the programme invites different sectors of society to get close to LGBT+ topics via the movies.

It has 5 sections that manage to synthesize a plural offer in themes, combining international premieres with national pre premieres, and consecrated directors with new talents.

Love is completely transversal to any sexuality, so we believe that with AMOR (the spanish word for love) we will help to contribute to the normalization and acceptation of sexual diversity, vindicating the rights of human beings, and enhancing understanding while celebrating the visibility of sexualities through cinema.

1.- THE FESTIVAL

AMOR International LGBT+ Film Festival is the first international film festival in Santiago of Chile focused on the subject of sexual and gender diversity, of independent and competitive nature.
