The 14th XPOSED International Queer Film Festival Berlin ....will be held from the 9th - 12th of May, 2019.
It’s about eXposure and eXposing. It’s about fun, Berlin and the rest of the Queer World! The XPOSED international queer short film festival Berlin was created to screen award winning Australian Queer short films to an international audience, however as the festival grew so did it's outlook, not only did we want to create International exposure for Australian Queer Film, but also to Queer Films from other regions as well. The best way to shine a light on Queer life in another land is to mark it with a giant X and open peoples eyes to it, therefore, the festival grew into it’s new focus. The festival sets its self apart from the rest of them by not just showing the latest and newest queer films around, but by putting together a thoroughly researched and developed program on queer films from specific regions that show how queer life has developed and grown in these lands. The festival does not wish to limit itself to only the new films going around the festival circuit, but by also finding film treasures that may have gotten lost years ago or that are just to classic not to show again.
Mission: To present queer stories from afar in Berlin during Pride Week.

Experimental films deserve experimental forms of presentation. Every day of the festival we invite you to our BOX at Kino Moviemento for our screenings of FRAGMENTS OF GAY HISTORY.
Here we show a compelling collection of short films that delve into moments throughout Gay history, from fascist times to leather clubs and parties in the 60s, to the lasting effect the brutality of laws have had on us. With re-workings of archive materials, we learn about lives of characters unknown to us and hegemonic histories. Screening several times throughout the festival, we invite audiences to stop by the specially created BOX KINO at the Moviemento lounge to step back in time to a past that also resonates with the present.
Visit our Website for information on the films as well as the screening times:
We are so excited: only 3 days until the 14th edition of XPOSED begins! And its bigger than ever with 16 feature films, 8 short film programs, a party, a panel and so many specials moments to come.

Closing our sensational programme on sunday night is Bertrand Mandico film LES GARÇONS SAUVAGES (THE WILD BOYS) . At the beginning of the 20th century on the island of La Réunion, five adolescents of good family, enamored with the occult, commit a savage crime. A Dutch Captain takes them in charge for a repressive cruise on a haunted, dilapidated sailboat. Exhausted by the methods of the Captain, the five boys prepare to mutiny. Their port of call is a supernatural island with luxuriant vegetation and bewitching powers.
Gorgeously shot with 16mm, mixing black/white and color, this poetic, avant-garde film invites us to join a sailing trip into deep and magic waters. Scores of filmic and literary references accompany the androgynous boys through this surreal and cinematic metamorphosis by Bertrand Mandico.

The newest work from director Ester Martin Bergsmark SWEDISH CANDY, SOME VIOLENCE AND A BIT OF CAT (Smågodis, katter och lite våld) takes us into a world where realities and experiences merge and transcend the normal, the usual and the narrative. By interweaving three stories, we find ourselves observing a would be infomercial about Gelatin production, then find ourselves following two girls in the forest in what feels like a suspense observational piece that straddles the line between what is good, what is bad, what is accepted, what is detested. As we get drawn in, we are taken then to another linear scenario about two cousins, whose closeness must be controlled, but breaks out when re-enacting a Tarzan and Jane routine they wish to put on for one of their fathers birthday celebrations.
SWEDISH CANDY, SOME VIOLENCE AND A BIT OF CAT is an existential sugar shock which takes us on a fun, candy-filled roller-coaster ride between cruel violence and extreme cuteness – which prove to be disturbingly close together. The humour, the surreal and the shock of your own scream make this piece of work a stand out for most middle length films that push the boundaries in queer film.

CASSANDRO THE EXOTICO is the title and the name of the protagonist of our next sensational film. In the gaudy, flamboyant world of Lucha Libre, Cassandro is its most eccentric star. He is the king of the Exóticos, the gender-bending cross-dressing wrestlers who fight prejudice as much as their opponents in this macho-dominated sport. Despite his lacquered hair, his mascara and his perfectly curled eyelashes, Cassandro is a combat beast, a many-times World Champion, who pushes his body to its most extreme limits. After 26 years of spinning dives and flying uppercuts on the ring, Cassandro is far from retiring. But with dozens of broken bones and metal pins in his body, he must now reinvent himself...
Marie Losier, director of THE BALLAD OF GENESIS AND LADY JAYE, captures in this stunning and colorful 16mm portrait the lights and shadows, the contrasts and dualities of a legendary figure that not only crosses gender and sexual roles but geographical, psychological and emotional ones. Between U.S and Mexico, between periods of sobriety and addiction, between adulthood and childhood trauma, Cassandro opens a door to look upon these territories with humor and affection.
