What's Happening

The Kolkata International Film Festival may be over, but another important film festival is about start  in the city. The Calcutta International LGBT Film Festival, Dialogues, is back with their twelfth edition to open up important conversations about gender, sexuality and rights of the queer community. Organised by LBT forum Sappho For Equality, Pratyay Gender Trust, Goethe Institut and Basusree Cinema, the festival is back to celebrate films dealing with gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender themes and issues.

Showcasing documentaries, short and feature films, this year we're excited to catch new films like A Kid Like Jake (a tale of a four-year-old child who forces his parents to rethink their gender roles as parents and spouses), Indian film Khejdi (a transgender person's journey to finding place in the society) and Kenyan film Rafiki (it explores the choice between happiness and safety).

The festival has also lined up several iconic films like Pride by Mathew Warchus, Looking For Langston By Isaac Julien and Borden In Flames by Lizzie Borden. Brazilian film Reaching For The Moon (2013) will be kicking off the festival.

How's The Venue

A heritage film theatre, Basusree dates back to the year 1947. A decent and well-maintained indie cinemal hall, Basusree is known to host this festival for the last few years, and also screening films for the Kolkata International Film Festival.
