Programme

desired! – film lust & queer

As of 2021, this section will also provide Dortmund with its own forum for all genres of film that deal with sexual identity and diversity. The desired! – film lust & queer programme puts the focus on lifestyles and concepts of love that differ from those of society’s majority and question prevailing ideas and notions of gender and their assigned social roles. The diversity of Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Intersexual lifestyles is highlighted in six to eight programmes comprising documentaries, feature films and lectures on film culture.
