Synopsis: 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 discussion is being held as part of BE SHORT NOW!, an initiative from the Torino Short Film Market.
With kind support of the Visegrad Fund, German-Czech Future Fund and Landesdirektion Sachsen
