This project focuses on lesbian, gay, transgender and queer films from France and Spain from the 1990s to the present day. As part of it, we are visiting LGBTQ festivals in France, Spain and the UK and engaging with local communities, groups and audiences through interviews, online questionnaires and blogs. Our aim is to investigate audience responses to LGBTQ films, asking broadly “how to images of queer desire travel?”

We are working in and out of French, Spanish, Catalan and English, on a range of materials from radical documentary through popular short-format entertainments to feature-length dramas, on-line, off-disc and in film theatres and archives. Links to the trailers and clips from some of the films can be found in the films section of this blog.
