The sixth edition of ZeFestival, the annual LGBT film festival, gets underway this week in a number of towns and cities throughout the region.
A film festival that aims to promote the works of young and unknown filmmakers, a festival that questions and reveals emotions whilst entertaining at the same time. Welcome to ZeFestival, the LGBT film festival organised and run by Polychromes Asso, and now in its sixth year.
The festival starts on Friday, 27th September, and runs until Sunday, 13th October, and, for the second year in a row, will be taking place in a number of towns and cities throughout the region, including Monaco, Nice, Cannes, Toulon, and Marseille.
There is an extensive international programme on offer to festival goers, with no less than twenty six films on the programme from all corners of the world including France, Belgium, Brazil, Italy, Chile, Argentina, Iran, Israel, the USA, and many more. The movies focus on themes relevant to the LGBT community, like gender identity and transsexuality.
The festival officially opens at 7pm on Friday 27th September at Museaav in Nice, with a presentation of the programme for the event. This will be followed by a performance by the Polychromes choir and a cocktail reception, hosted by the organisers.
As an avant-première to the festival, Fight Aids Monaco and the Ballets de Monte-Carlo directed by Jean-Christophe Maillot present two works, Still/Here and Five Dances on Thursday, 26th September, in the Théâtre Princesse Grace in Monaco.
The full programme for the festival is available on the official Polychromes website. Ticket prices vary from €5 to €7 for each movie, depending on the venue.
