Mostra Internacional de Cinema Gai i Lesbia
The FIRE!! Mostra is the first Lesbian, Gay, Transsexual and Bisexual (LGBT) Film Festival in Spain: established in 1995 by Casal Lambda, in Barcelona, it addresses affective diversity through a careful selection of feature films, documentaries and short films. A selection of art-house cinema and an educational approach are its main characteristics.
Throughout two weeks - mainly at the French Institute but also at other different indoor or open-air venues in the city -, a wide range of public is invited to enjoy this Barcelona cultural landmark, with stories and testimonials of free people, creators who break barriers and fighters for LGBT rights, all of whom help with love to build a fairer and freer world.
The festival’s name is a tribute to the late 20s New York magazine of the same name, led by the black gay writer Richard Bruce Nugent, portrayed in one of the most iconic films of the festival: Brother to Brother, which we screened a few years ago.
