Once again, Mezipatra Queer Film Festival will welcome numerous international guests. One of them will be the director and screenwriter Steve McLean. He will introduce his Postcards from London, a film about the attractive world of male escorts who re-create from their bodies live pictures by old painting masters. 

In the main competition this year, 10 amazing pictures from around the world are waiting for you. Traditionally, we will get back to the movie classics in the retrospective section and on top of that we have some news for you! After five years, we will bring you a special section Focus: Family exploring the concept of family, family relationships, and parenthood through non-competitive films. We cannot wait and you?

The section of short films will introduce 31 films from 17 countries divided into six thematic blocks. Six thematic blocks will bring relationship comedies, dramas, and also erotic fantasies. The section, judged by an international student jury, is very popular with the viewers every year.

The program of the 19th edition of Mezipatra will feature not only live-action feature films, but also documentaries. This year, you can see five of them, both from Europe and the USA. Which are they?

We have revealed a program of 19th Mezipatra with the theme Beyond Reality. In the Program sections article you will find what we have prepared for you this year. You can look forward to an international feature films competition, short films, retrospective, documentaries and non-competition section Focus: Family. In total, we will introduce over 50 films!
