The second year of our Queering the Industry section, which examines the film industry from a queer perspective, begins on Saturday. At 2:00 p.m., we will broadcast a masterclass with a new queer cinema icon - Canadian author John Greyson (whose influential work we featured in the festival retrospective in 2007 and whose film Zero Patience will close the festival this year). At 4:00 p.m., we will talk to the organizers of queer film festivals in Eastern Europe and at 8:00 p.m. we will look into the world of online streaming platforms.

At 6:00 p.m., join the debate about the Argentine film One in a Thousand. Does the replica "the smaller the city, the greater the hell," which we hear in this film about lesbian adolescence in a small town, apply? Ana Carolina Garcia, Luis Molina, and Mauricio Vila will be answering live. We will then talk about the film Code of the Freaks, a radical reinterpretation of the portrayal of people with disabilities on the film screen, from 7:00 p.m. with its director, Alyson Patsavas.

At 6:30 p.m., our director Pavel Bicek will invite Ondřej Moravec, the program director of the One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival, to the studio. The March wave of the pandemic literally shattered the festival in half and it had to end overnight. What did its sequel look like and can you still watch its films today? Ask live in the comments.

We recommend Make Up as a competing feature film. Watch this psychological horror today, as we will meet its director Claire Oakley at Q&A tomorrow. And we also recommend Always Amber, a time-lapse documentary mapping three years in the life of looking for own voice and true identity in the boundaries of modern society. The portrait of nonbinary Amber was created by two young directors, Lia Heintala and Hannah Reinikainen, who focus not only on gender issues but also on friendship, love, identity and the lifestyle of the new generation.
