MEXICO INTERNATIONAL LGBTQ+ FILM FESTIVAL / June 23-26, 2022 ????️‍????

☆ CONCEPT—

The Mexico LGBTQ+ International Film Festival (¡Goya Queer!) is a nonprofit organization of general interest that CONNECTS WORLDWIDE FILMMAKERS [who make LGBTQ+ themed movies] WITH A WIDE AUDIENCE FROM CENTRAL & SOUTH AMERICA, while also fighting against homophobia and discriminations towards LGBTQ+ youth.

¡Goya Queer! is a cinematographic event also known as The Mexico LGBTQ+ International Film Festival, where talented directors from around the world come to Mexico City to present their work.

Indeed, we believe that art, culture, and films in particular, can help bring public awareness on sensitive matters such as love and its various forms of expression.

☆ PHYLOSOPHY—

The point is not so much to show "the latest films that have never been screened in another festival before" (even though most of our selection is both recent and exclusive).
LGBTQ+ films generally find their audience mainly in niche festivals [where the audience is mainly the LGBTQ+ community itself].
¡Goya Queer!, on the other hand, intends to offer to a wider audience some high-quality films [creatively, technically and intellectually], which will both captivate the viewers and help them to think out of a box.

Just as it is not necessary to be heterosexual to appreciate action movies, we are convinced that love stories (which are often at the center of LGBTQ+ cinema) are universal and speak to all communities, insofar as the characteristic of every human being is the desire to love and be loved.

We value creative expression and cultural diversity, yet we don’t agree with the term of “community” as specified by the general LGBTQ+ code.
We believe the world should be united, not divided into communities.
We appreciate dialogues and differing opinions, and we do not tolerate harassment, discrimination, or abusive behavior, such as offensive comments related to race, ethnicity, nationality, citizenship status, gender identity and/or expression, sexuality, physical appearance, religion, ability, age, or economic background.

Like the Dalai Lama XIV said “We will never make peace with ourselves if we can't be at peace with the world around us”.

- JURY PRIZE FOR BEST FILM (all categories).
- JURY PRIZE FOR BEST ACTOR OR ACTRESS
- UNAM PRIZE FOR BEST SHORT FILM

The jury is composed of prominent film professionals and actors, as well as the film and theater section of UNAM.
The contents of the awards will soon be announced.
