LET'S CELEBRATE THE RICHNESS OF LESBIAN FILMS

11th Edition – 20-22 September 2019

Some Prefer Cake is back from the 20th to the 22nd of September with its 11th edition. The Bologna lesbian film festival will be directed by Communicattive and realized thanks to the involvement and generosity of the lesbian and feminist community, which is political, affectionate and mobile.
The festival offers an insight on the diverse panorama revolving around lesbian international film, with a focus on independent productions, artistic projects and political narratives: three days full of films, documentaries, short films, visions, stories, meetings to nourish our minds with plural imaginaries and connect our lives with lesbian and feminist fights around the world. There will of course be moments of socialization and fun, with daily dj sets and a wild party on Saturday night.
We invite you the cinema (it’s always the same!) from the 20th to the 22nd of September.

AGAINST OPPRESSIVE POWERS AND NEXT TO THE WOMEN REBELLING AROUND THE WORLD, WE KEEP CELEBRATING THE STRENGTH, IRONY AND RICHNESS OF LESBIAN FILMS.
