A culture of oppression and silence is not only African. Struggles for visibility, self- representation and liberation are daily practice in Hamburg, too. In Kenya the visual representation of queers by queers started a decade ago and the NEST Arts Collective, a creative and productive collaboration of artists, made a huge contribution to the exploring, re-imaging and visualizing of queer identities. The film clips are examples of diverse queer futures.
B-Movie, Friday 21st October, 8.15 pm
Queer Video Art Exhibition —MATERIAL, GRRRL!
This year, in cooperation with the gallery hinterconti e.V., we’re showing three video works outside of the cinemas.
“Cool For You” is a music/performance project by the Berlin artist Vika Kirchenbauer. Through a thermal imaging camera we see two sensually entwined bodies. The vivid sound makes this an intimate and privileged experience for the whole body.
Like many of his works (including this year’s festival trailer), “Famous Diamonds” was hand-made by the Canadian video artist Daniel McIntyre. Colours painted on to celluloid, shades and tints added by hand and then developed – McIntyre’s works carry a very unique signature.
Daniel McIntyre will be present at the opening.
Allyson Mitchell & Deirdre Logue show an everyday feminist utopia in “Hers is still a dank cave…” with green screen, knitwear and cats: “The new world is not a distant, sparkling planet … it is in the here and now.”
hinterconti e.V., Marktstr. 40A, 20357 Hamburg
Opening: Thursday 20th October, 4 pm
Thursday 20th October, 4.00 –8.00 pm

Die Woche Danach (The Week After)
That merciless return to Heteronorm City after the festival sucks! So come and get your booster here! A couple of days to recover: sleep in, do the laundry, eat, and then get back into the cinema! On 28th and 29th October we’re recapping all the highlights. Which ones? Stay on the lookout! The titles will be announced during the festival week and posted on www.lsf-hamburg.de.
Nachbeben (Aftershock) – a small Short Film Festival!
To go out with a bang, we'd like to thank our valiant helpers: without you, the festival is nothing! That's why we'd like to invite them (and everyone else who’s interested) after the festival, and after the week after, to the Aftershock: a fab silver screen selection and 2016’s last hang-out at the Metropolis Bar. Don’t miss it!
Metropolis, Saturday 5th November, 9.15 pm
