Women & LGBTQ Rights

Film's ability to join the great struggles for women's rights and LGBTQ+ rights, and illuminate these never-ending struggles with cinematic force, by depicting personal stories from original angles, receives a special expression this year at the Solidarity Festival. As "old" struggles for rights and equality are renewed, the festival program dedicates a special place to cinematic works that fight their way for a more just and better society for all human beings - of all sexual and gender identities - in Israeli premieres of award-winning international feature films and documentaries.
