At the invitation of the festival, programmer and co-director of Queer Lisboa and Queer Porto Festivals, Cristian Rodríguez, travels next week to Fortaleza, Brazil, in order to participate as a jury member in the 13th edition of For Rainbow - Festival de Cinema e Cultura da Diversidade Sexual e de Gênero.
For Rainbow, which will be held this year from November 8 to 14 in Dragão do Mar, is one of the most important spaces for debate and dissemination of respect for sexual and gender plurality in Brazil. The entire program of the event is free admission and is composed not only of film but also of theater, music, performance, dance, literature, exhibitions, seminars and debates.
Cristian Rodríguez will also be present at Curta O Gênero, another free admission event on diversity, gender and queer culture, whose 8th edition takes place immediately before, between October 31 and November 8. Curta O Gênero is also held at Centro Dragão do Mar de Arte e Cultura, as well as in other venues such as Porto Dragão and Porto Iracema das Artes, and includes in its program various shows, screenings and seminars as well.
