With the 10th Gay Games, we will revisit the years 1978-2018 through an original short film retrospective called “Revolutions/Evolutions” 40 years of women in the world and LBGT++ lifestyle and status”.
The themes will focus more specifically on:
- Our bodies in mouvement
- Sports and politics
- Our bodies in all kinds of state (health)
- Our societies and our rights
- Our LGBT families (ageing LGBT, homoparents…)
The program will present 20 to 30 selected short films, for each of these themes, in collaboration with our LGBT++ & Women Film Festival partners.
A “Cinema Café” will be set up in the central courtyard of the IVth arrondissement Townhall, in a quiet atmosphere, conducive to exchanges of ideas between participants, Gay Games supporters or actors of the artistic and cinematographic worlds (film festival organisers and their guests, directors, actors…).
This courtyard will be set up with a specific attention to sound levels, without background music, to facilitate “all inclusive” discussions, adapted to all types of hearing.
Drinks and light meals specially catered for people recovering from illnesses will be made available by various suppliers.
The Cinema-Café space, will be a quiet, comfortable and friendly haven which will welcome people tired and weakened by illness or handicap in the best possible conditions.
A “Code of Conduct” will require from visitors and participants a special attention to the flow and circulation of disabled visitors and or people with limited mobility; comfortable seats will be allotted as a matter of priority to those most in need.
A team of volunteers “multilingual chatterboxers” will be onsite to help facilitate discussions.
