IDFA x Global Pride

    • set 4 items

    In solidarity with Global Pride, the digital convergence of international Pride events, IDFA presents a selection of films that sound the call for LGBTQ+ people to keep fighting to exist, to persist in the struggle for human rights and to resist the forces that would silence them. There has never been a more important time for queer community to embrace both its strength in togetherness, as well as its intersectional diversity. Here we offer four powerful films that challenge us raise our voices loudly and furiously for the lives of the most vulnerable among us.
