Lust*streifen Film Festival Basel

Thursday, 10 October 2024 until Sunday, 13 October 2024

***Due to unforeseen circumstances in our organization, we will no longer be accepting submissions for the festival 2024. The festival is currently restructuring and will be held in a different form in 2024.

For everyone who has already submitted für 2024: We are deeply sorry to have waisted your time and energy for submitting. We will be informing you shortly via email about our further steps. Since we are not charging any submission fees, we will not be paying back any fees.

Film submissions for 2025 will open in 2025. Thank you for your understanding.***


The underrepresentation of queers in film is reality. They are in need of a visible platform, to promote the acceptance of diversity. Because visibility creates reflexion and reflexion gives us awareness. Awareness leads to movement and movement is change.

We want to bring queer stories througout the world to the screen, to make space for reflexion and productive discussions. Our films are provoking, revolutionary, feminist, experimental, political, kinky, sex positive, contradictory, punk, trashy, gay, hetero, trans*, polyamorous, monogamic and much more.
