Round table

Tuesday 15th of September, 4pm

Production, distribution and exhibition of LGBT cinema

The meeting on Production, distribution and exhibition of LGTB cinema aimed to provide a space to debate the issue both internationally and locally, given the relatively low production of cinema dedicated to affective and sexual diversity in our country compared to others such as Germany, France, the United Kingdom or the United States. In Spain, distributors draw heavily on foreign films to tackle the LGTB issue, a curious fact if we consider the good Spanish reception, in general, of this subject and the fact that Spain has been, for example, one of the first European countries to adopt an equal marriage law. Although the LGBT community is here particularly active, relatively well integrated into the social environment – at least compared to the countries mentioned above – and quite visible at the media and television level, all this is not very often reflected in cinematographic production.

It’s been interesting to chat with our guests to know their opinion on the approach of the LGBT theme in their different professional fields: in production, to see if this theme is increasingly present or not in the scripts that are circulating and in the shootings that finally take place; in the distribution sector, to try to understand to what extent the LGBT criterion is taken into account positively or not when selecting a film, and in the exhibition field, to find out if the theatres also positively evaluate this criterion when programing the titles. It’s been also be interesting to talk about the role of LGBT film festivals in Spain and see to what extent distributors and exhibitors take their prescribing role into account when betting on a film.
