17th Pink Screens - Brussels Queer Film Festival

SAVE THE DATE <3

/// 17TH PINK SCREENS FILM FESTIVAL ///

*******************************************************

Voici revenu le temps du Pink Screens organisé par l'asbl Genres d'à côté, votre festival de films queer bruxellois qui célèbre les genres et sexualités différentes ! Une fois encore, il vous propose un délicieux menu composé de fictions, documentaires, films expérimentaux, courts et longs métrages que nous vous convions à venir savourer dans nos quartiers du cinéma Nova et dans nos extensions au cinéma Aventure mais aussi aux Galeries, Palace et Beursschouwburg.

Pour 2018, nous avons opté pour un régime particulièrement corsé. Il y sera question de bonnes protéines... humaines évidemment! Oui, nous avons osé un focus « Mange-moi » loin d’être métaphorique ! De quoi révéler la part carnassière en chacun·e de nous… Et pour agrémenter l’ensemble : des saveurs brésiliennes. Le Brésil est riche d’une production en écho avec nos thématiques. Cela valait bien qu'on s'y attarde à nouveau. Nous en avons débusqué le meilleur, dévoilant ses contrastes, son histoire mouvementée, ses résistances aussi, dans un focus « Brasil ! ».

Mais le festival ne se résume pas à ça. Nous explorerons la construction de la/des masculinité·s, ferons raisonner nos « queer voices », encouragerons les dykes qui prennent des caméras pour agir, goûterons aux crêpes au citron, embarquerons pour un road trip rose bonbon, hésiterons entre la case « animale » ou « sauvage » et croiserons des terrains de foot envahis de pékinois géants.

Pink Screens, c’est une expérience à vivre et à partager. 10 jours de films mais pas que ! Une exposition protéiforme, des débats pour gueuler (poliment), des rencontres surprenantes, des fêtes toujours, dont l’incontournable Pink Night, haut-lieu de la scène musicale queer. Si cela ne met pas l’eau à la bouche !

Het PINK SCREENS filmfestival van Genres d'à Côté is terug: uw Brussels queer festival, een ode aan verschillende genderidentiteiten en seksualiteiten. Een programma met een heerlijke mengeling van fictie, documentaires, experimentele film, kort- en langspeelfilms. Laat dit alles u ten volle smaken op ons hoofdkwartier in Cinéma Nova maar ook in onze bijhuizen Cinéma Aventure, Galeries, Palace en de Beursschouwburg.

Dit jaar kozen wij voor een protëinerijk dieet. Er is dus sprake van eiwitten, meer bepaald dierlijke en in het bijzonder menselijke. Ja, wij hebben het aangedurfd een focus "Eet mij/Mange moi" te organiseren en die is verre van metaforisch. Kwestie van het vleesetend aspect te ontdekken in elk van ons... Het geheel wordt gekruid met Braziliaanse specerijen. Onze thematieken vinden een brede echo in de rijke Braziliaanse productie. Het was de moeite waard om er opnieuw halt te houden. In een focus "Brasil!" zochten wij naar het beste dat de contrasten, de rijke geschiedenis en de weerstanden blootlegt.

Maar er is nog meer: wij gaan op ontdekkingstocht naar de opbouw van de mannelijkheid/ de mannelijkheden, laten onze "queer voices" weergalmen, moedigen de dykes aan actie te voeren met de camera in de hand, proeven pannekoeken met citroensmaak, laten ons meevoeren in een rose bonbon road trip, twijfelen tussen het vakje "animale" (dierlijk) of "sauvage" (wild) en komen terecht op voetbalvelden vol reusachtige Pekinezen.

Pink Screens, dat moet je beleven en delen! Tien dagen film en nog meer... Een tentoonstelling vol protëinen, debatten waarin je je kunt laten gaan ( maar steeds beleefd blijft, natuurlijk) , onthutsende ontmoetingen en schitterende fuiven waaronder de onvergetelijke Pink Night, een must in de muzikale queer scene. Als je daar niet van begint te watertanden...

Celebrating gender and sexuality in all forms, the PINK SCREENS queer film festival, hosted by Genres d'à côté, returns to Brussels! This year, we’ve cooked up a delicious mix of fiction, documentaries, experimental films, as well as short and feature films. Choose from our delectable offerings found at Cinema Nova, and associated venues, Cinema Aventure, Galeries, Palace, and Beursschowburg.

2018 calls for a high-protein diet. With PINK SCREENS, there’s more than enough to help you meet your daily intake. However, it comes in the form of animal meat – human to be exact. With this, we daringly chose ‘Eat me’ as one of our themes and it’s way more than metaphoric! While bringing out the carnivore in everyone, PINK SCREENS combines everything with Brazilian flavours. A fertile ground for content matching our topics, Brazil is worth exploring. As part of PINK SCREENS’ ‘Brazil’ theme, we found the best films to showcase the country’s striking contrasts, rich history, and cultural resistance.

The festival doesn’t stop there! We’ll explore the construction of masculinity (and masculinities), amplify ‘queer voices,’ encourage dykes to direct films in efforts of activism, indulge on lemon crepes, embark on a pink candy road trip, hesitate between ‘animal’ and ‘wild’, and transverse football fields invaded by giants from Beijing.

PINK SCREENS is an experience to be lived and shared, offering ten days of films and much more! Programming includes a multifaceted exhibition, engaging debates where you can (politely) shout, and daily parties / random encounters – including the incredible Pink Night. Capping off the festival, this event is a highlight of Brussels’ queer music scene. Is your mouth watering yet?
