Cineffable, film for and by lesbian women

Find HERE the lesbian friendly places in París

CINEFFABLE (Paris International Lesbian & Feminist Film Festival), film for and by lesbian women, is a festival that arose in 1989 from the insufficient presence of films on lesbian themes at the International Women’s Film Festival of Créteil.

This year the 31st edition is being held, making it one of the longest-running alternative festivals in Europe.

In this edition of the Festival, Cárceles Bolleras (Dyke Jails), a documentary by Cecilia Montagut, will be screened. You can see the trailer of the documentary HERE.

Watch the video presentation of the festival for this edition.

Cineffable will be held from October 31 to November 3, 2019

Access is only allowed to women, so the French government does not grant any subsidies for discriminating against the male public.

This is why the entire festival organization, from the snacks at the bar, the ticket office and the bookkeeping to the viewing, the search for films (which is not easy at all) translation, subtitled by volunteers. So, from their website, they call on the attendees to also help for 2 hours a day in various tasks during the festival.

CINEFFABLE is more than just a film festival, it’s a week of encounters between women, most of them lesbians, in which you can enjoy exhibitions, round tables, activities such as Tango Queer classes, as well as the best lesbian and feminist cinema of all continents and all narrative aspects.

It is a multicultural and enriching experience in which I have been able to participate on two occasions, the first as a volunteer and the second as director of a short film selected.

I encourage them that if you plan to go to Paris, you’ll take that into account. It will take place from 31 October to 3 November.

For those of you who are there, you can see the program and enjoy this edition.
