The identities - Vienna's International Queer Film Festival will take place from June 4th - 12th 2009. With more that 60 films screened at three different locations it's not easy to figure out what to watch. Especially since the official program website can not be filtered for lesBian content and that's what I'm sure you're all most curious about! ;)

Ploughing through all those exciting films and compiling them into a readable post turned out to be a lot more work then I expected it to be and so I'm afraid my writeup is a bit late. The festival starts Thursday and ticket presale has already begun some time ago, find out more here.


  1. Life, Love and Drama (features)

  2. Music (documentaries and features)

  3. Documentaries

  4. Trans- and Intersexuality (documentaries and features)

  5. Classics (documentaries and features)

  6. Shorts

Take me to the list! )
