--- PHYSICAL SCREENINGS-VENUES TO BE CONFIRMED SOON --- What about TQAF? -This is the film department open call but you should know that TQAF is not only that. Is an art festival having a world wide network, with visual artworks, poetry and writing, workshops, performances, video and film presentations, community interventions and talks or lectures that every year investigate a question. Through a series of in-person and online interventions, TQAF 2021 aims to offer a platform for underrepresented LGBTQIA+ artists, cultural practitioners, writers and activists from across the Balkans and other selected regions to share their practice and connect with peers in Spring/Summer 2021. TQAF is a grassroots initiative which aims to amplify the voices of the LGBTQI+ community by providing an open international platform for artistic expression, discussion, and research. As well as, our intention is to give visibility to local queer filmmakers . What is Identity? -The meaning of identity has undergone many transformations throughout time, to encapsulate definitions such as similarity, affinity, symmetry, equivalence, equality etc. As a fluid term, identity has been appropriated by different groups of people across the years, to determine different things and different concepts. Sociological approaches on identity have long described it as a cohesive whole; a set of characteristics, all of which contribute to the formulation of an individual’s sense of self. Identity is a construction: a combination of multiple aspects and different shades of that which we refer to as one’s self. Which aspects contribute to its formulation? How is it defined? How do individuals and communities construct a coherent sense of who they are and how is this performed and/or narrated in practice? What is new? - Except from our main screening program, this year we are going to have pre festival screenings, event, q&a screenings. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DONATE TO TQAF: As an independent initiative, the Thessaloniki Queer Arts Festival is run entirely by volunteers, and we depend on the generosity of our audiences to sustain our work and keep our exhibitions, workshops and events free.
