16. Luststreifen Film Festival
Luststreifen Film Festival takes place from 5. – 8. October 2023. until then our team is working at full speed to make the festival as unique, dazzling and hot as you know and love it. 5 months left, and be sure, we make the most of it.
We were specifically looking for films that work against exclusion, discrimination, underrepresentation or misrepresentation and that address aesthetic modes of representation, diverse bodies and fluid notions of sexuality and queerness. Out of hundreds of films screened and submitted at festivals, the whole thing ended in a fabulous selection of 13 feature-length films and five (!) short film programmes. Beyond the films, the supporting programme will provide plenty of entertainment. There, taboos will be put on the table, made discussable and new things will be discovered without constraint.
Hello it's us, and we want to celebrate with you. We celebrate fifteen years of queer-feminist representation on Basel's cinema screens. Luststreifen is celebrating its puberty, what started as a small film evening among queer friends has grown into one of the biggest queer-feminist film festivals in Switzerland.
