FILMFEST DRESDEN announces 2019 programme

Gender Talks is the title of a BE SHORT NOW! panel focusing on gender issues

Date: March 6th, 2019

On March 5th FILMFEST DRESDEN revealed the programme for its 31st edition (April 9th-14th 2019).

The festival announced a BE SHORT NOW! related panel entitled Gender Talks as part of its multiple industry events.

“Just a glance at this year’s competitions tells you: Gender is a major theme among the filmmakers. Many films from Scandinavia, as well as works from countries with more conservative attitudes, such as Brazil or Ireland, are exploring the subject, whether as sexual self-determination, gender reassignments or same-sex marriages. The filmmakers speak about their experience during their shoots, why they regard the subject to be so important and how such topics are accepted in their country of origin."

The panel is supported by the Visegrad Fund, German-Czech Future Fund and Landesdirektion Sachsen.

Gender Talks will be held on April 11th at 16:00, Schauburg Cinema.
