Caribbean Cinemas’ Fine Arts Theaters will screen films from the first queer film festival, Puerto Rico Queer Filmest, to be held in Puerto Rico from November 12-18, 2009. The festival will showcase feature and short films, and will hold lectures and discussions.
The festival will host international films with themes related to the GLBT community. The films are from Argentina, Canadá, Israel, United States, Taiwan, and other countries. The production director of the Puerto Rico Queer Filmfest says that the festival attempts to “entertain, educate, and present quality films to a wide audience of film lovers.” Festival director Víctor González adds that the festival also aims to raise consciousness and “expose the audience to diverse storylines that reflect the reality of the community.”
