We introduce films with queer topics even outside of the festival. As a part of Mezipatra Approved, we will present The Danish Girl – a film about a woman who found the courage to be truly herself.

This year’s edition of the Mezipatra QFF was again a great success: over the two festival weeks, 66 queer-themed films were presented to a total of 11,700 viewers. In addition to the feature film competition and six documentary films, a retrospective section and a special screening of 54: The Director's Cut, the audience could enjoy seven short film programmes.

During the Closing Ceremony of the Brno part of the festival, the winner of the Audience Award was announced – the prize went to Antonia, a drama by Marleen Gorris from 1995.
