The opening of LGBT film festival ‘Kitoks kinas’ (‘Diverse Cinema’) will start with Tomer Heymann’s film ‘I shot my love’ which tells a personal but universal love story and follows the triangular relationship between Tomer, his German boyfriend, and his intensely Israeli mother.
The goal of the LGBT film festival ‘Kitoks kinas’ is to educate the society of Lithuania through different artistic means conveying LGBT culture, inciting discussions and changing the attitudes of society towards the LGBT community.
“After the Baltic Pride Vilnius 2010, the organizers came up with the idea to organise an LGBT film festival which hopefully becomes an annual event in Lithuania”, – noted Chair of Lithuanian Gay League Vladimiras Simonko.
An exhibition on diverse families titled ‘Living together (Contemporary traditional / nontraditional family)’, 2004, will be displayed at Cinema Centre ‘Pasaka’ during LGBT film festival ‘Kitoks kinas’. The exhibition will be open to the public from 16 August until the end of the festival.
This series of photos explores the concept of contemporary family, the integration of diverse families into society, and the attitudes and judgement of society itself.
The LGBT film festival is organised by the Equal Rights and Social Development Centre and Lithuanian Gay League, with the website GayLine.lt as the information partner. The LGBT film festival will take place in both Vilnius on 25 – 31 August and Kaunas on 4 -6 September 2011.
