Festivals come one after another, but they are not alike. The film club of the organisation Mawjoudin ( We exist ) will take over the driver’s seat of Mawjoudin Queer Film Festival from the 15th to the 18th of January 2018 that will take place in Tunis, Tunisia. A young initiative devoted in its first edition to the 7th art.

The organizers are concocting for their festival-goers and guests a series of short and medium-length films from Africa and the Middle East, focusing mainly on the issue of non-normative gender and sexuality, breaking thus the taboos around this theme.

The festival conceives of itself as audacious; it will deal more with the intersectional approach in the fight against gender based discriminations and repression. Its unprecedented screening program will rhyme with discoveries, stimulate reflection, and aspire to illuminate basic notions that are blurred or even erroneous in the collective unconscious.
