About the Festival

Luststreifen wants to enable an active, enlightening exchange by means of workshops and screenings of international films on the subject of queer feminism. Gender and sexual orientation do not play a role here. We give filmmakers and creative people a platform to show themselves and their work to the world. Everyone is welcome to come and wipe the everyday dust off their or soul.

We are a Safer Space. Be Aware!

Even though it is often not our Intention to (deliberately) hurt or embarrass anyone or even to put someone in an uncomfortable Situation, it can happen sometimes. It is important to realize that there are some people that have to endure these hurtful situations daily. The culprit behind this is a System which we know to be heteronormative patriarchy, which, sadly, can show up unconsciously even in those who are aware about it. Discrimination can happen without any malicious intent and can be camouflaged as innocent curiosity or as ones need to put people in categories. This curiosity and behaviour are anything but innocent. It can be hurtful, cross people’s boundaries and is discriminating. “I didn’t mean it like that” will not be tolerated here! It is up to the affected person to decide if discrimination has taken place. It is our collective responsibility to create a respectful and safe environment for everyone. Please follow our Safer-Space Policies! Affected persons are not obligated to provide education. Respectful interaction requires the willingness to deal independently with various forms of discrimination.


At neues kino, people who rely on walking and mobility aids are welcome to ask the bar staff to help them into the movie theater, as it can only be reached via a few steps. All other locations are wheelchair accessible.
