Festival start: 23 June 2020      Festival end: 28 June 2020

It is the first international LGBT+ film festival of independent scope that take place in Santiago, Chile from 2016.

Focusing on quality over quantity and aiming to show the most interesting and unique titles depicting sexual diversity, this event is meant to be an inclusive space, where the programme invites different sectors of society to get close to LGBT+ topics via the movies.

It has 5 sections that manage to synthesize a plural offer in themes, combining international premieres with national pre premieres, and consecrated directors with new talents.

Love is completely transversal to any sexuality, so we believe that with AMOR (the spanish word for love) we will help to contribute to the normalization and acceptation of sexual diversity, vindicating the rights of human beings, and enhancing understanding while celebrating the visibility of sexualities through cinema.

AMOR International LGBT+ Film Festival

AMOR International LGBT+ Film Festival is the first international film festival in Santiago of Chile focused on the subject of sexual and gender diversity, of independent and competitive nature. The fifth edition of AMOR Festival will take place from June 23th to June 28th, 2020.

Giving priority to quality over quantity and looking forward to exhibit the most interesting and singular titles that expose the sexual diversity, the scheduling invites different sectors of society to get close to the LGBT+ themed cinema.

Love is totally transverse to any sexuality, so with AMOR we hope to contribute to the inclusion of sexual diversity, to strengthen understanding and to celebrate the visibility of sexualities through the seventh art.

c. Chilean Panorama: Non-competitive section of national films, short films and videos for fiction, documentary and animation, and music video clips too.

d. International Panorama: Foreign feature films and short films that show looks, stories and concerns of different cultures related to LGBT+ topics.

e. Focus: Selection of tittles that seeks to recognize the work and career of a filmmaker who stands out for its singular look about LGBT+ topics.

AMOR International LGBT+ Film Festival opens its 2020 call for audiovisual works from 2018 onwards, from around the world, without commercial exhibitions on Santiago of Chile, addressing LGBT+ subject (lesbians, gay, bisexual, transsexual, intersex, and any other expression of sexual diversity and/or gender).
