For the first time the history of our festival, we will present an industry program called Queering the Industry for professionals from the audiovisual industry. During the first festival weekend (November 9–10, 2019), a number of discussions will take place about the current issues and challenges that can be encountered in terms of production, production or promotion of the film as well as finding a suitable audience.
The theme of this year's Mezipatra is „Winds of Change”. This anniversary provides us with an opportunity to emphasize the festival's social and political dimensions. Through this year's theme, we accentuate the mutual queer solidarity and emphasize the necessity to be an active force that will not be discouraged by obstacles and aversion in its fight for equality and recognition in the whole society. This year we also prepared a special industry program for film professionals. Full program will be released on October 16. Until then you can purchase a festival pass and see seven films for the price of five..
