The 15th XPOSED International Queer Film Festival Berlin ....will be held at some point in the future...

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.

Dearest XPOSED Family,

On what would have been the Opening Night of our festival, we would like to make an announcement (as if we were on stage...): The 15th edition of the XPOSED International Queer Film Festival Berlin will be moved to May 2021! We’re happy to continue working on a fabulous film program and can’t wait to see you all again.

To stay true to the festival’s dedication for the promotion of queer film and filmmakers, the 6th Queer Short Film Fund will nonetheless be held this year!
On September 19th, 2020, we hope to come together at aquarium and hear five filmmakers pitch their projects. For the first time, the Queer Short Film Fund will thus take place separately from the festival - and submissions are now open to residents not only in Berlin but from all over Germany.

Today, we’re happy to announce the Call for Entries – and excited to receive your submissions! The deadline is August 28th; more information can be found here:

And now it’s time for some champagne!

Yours excitedly,
Bartholomew Sammut, Merle Groneweg, and the entire XPOSED Team 🌹🖤

Fantasy Filmfest

“It's an existential situation for cinemas" As the Berlin arthouse Kino community launches today its crowdfunding campaign, we talk to WOLF founder Verena von Stackelberg about Corona's impact and the price of solidarity.

Dearest XPOSED Family,

The situation in Berlin, Germany and around the world is having a major impact on all of us. It also impacts the many cultural events that bring together communities and make us feel at home. However, in these times, the urgent requirement that all stay in our actual homes (i. e. - the life of a film programmer) means that out of safety for our community, such cultural events like ours must be put on hold.

As we have for the last 8 months been working on putting together our 15th anniversary program of XPOSED, we were looking at the viability of holding the festival. But it is now very clear that the festival cannot take place as planned from the 7th until the 10th of May.

We are now searching for potential other dates that could work for our festival and our audience, and hope we can announce those within the next weeks. Until then – stay safe, stay sane and keep sharing those funny memes. It helps.

Sending all our best and looking forward to putting together a kick ass program that will bring us all back together again!

Bartholomew Sammut & Merle Groneweg

XPOSED 2019: Interview: Mònica Rovira - Ver a una mujer - Filmlöwin

"Es gibt nicht den einen Weg zu leben oder zu lieben oder irgendwas. Jede Geschichte ist anders, aber ich hoffe, dass alle sich verlieben und fallen lassen."

Mònica Rovira, director of TO SEE A WOMAN and one of the beautiful guest we had this year, talks about her film and filmmaking with Filmlöwin. Ver a una mujer nimmt die Zuschauer_innen mit auf eine emotionale Reise, bei der es kaum Distanz zu den beiden Frauen* im Film gibt.

🎬 And action for Tonina Matamalas and her film Amigas... muy Amigas which won the Queer Short Film Fund announced by our jury yesterday at the Lolly Award Ceremony.

Amigas... muy Amigas follows traces of lesbian visibility in Spanish popular culture and transforms them into a vibrating collage.

With the help of a €1000 a cash prize, €2000 in in kind support from 25p *cine support GmbH - Filmtechnikverleih Berlin, Audio Post Production sessions at the Berliner Union Film and a mentor-ship programme, the realisation of this project is taken to a next step.
We are so thrilled to see this work in the near future.
