Why define femininity if you can just show women? Fat, skinny, sad, cheerful, made-up or not, whether in high heels or in sneakers, whether wearing a hijab or a bikini. Just like the ones you meet every day and like the ones you are yet to meet. Since 2016 we have been organizing “Demakijaż” – an annual women’s film festival. Year after year, you can see feature films and documentaries from every corner of the world, each of them showcasing talent, strength and determination of women behind and in front of the camera. “Demakijaż” goes beyond the artificial images of women mediated in the press, advertising, TV series, and cinema. Such representation is one-dimensional, incomplete, and far removed from reality. The moment you go to a party, hang out with friends or eat dinner at grandma’s, you immediately see a richer and more diverse picture of femininity. But this is nowhere near all of it! What about women living in different parts of the globe, having dissimilar experiences, worldviews or beliefs? We cannot wait to see such diversity on screen. QUEERZ GET LOUD is an interdisciplinary festival devoted to the culture and life of the LGBTQIA + communities in Poland. The program includes film screenings, debates, concerts, live acts, workshops, meetings with authors and artists and others. The second edition of the festival will be held on the 26th-28th of August 2021 in the Galeria Labirynt in Lublin. As part of the festival program, a slot of queer short films from around the world will be screened. The screening of films selected for the official selection will take place in Galeria Labirynt between the 26th and the 28th of August.
