Les Fantômes has been nominated for Best Feature Film at the Serile Filmului Gay International Film Festival in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. We’re quite happy to be »in competition«. Originally, the festival was supposed to start tomorrow, but last week, we received the following E-mail from Sebastian Ivan, the festival’s programme coordinator: »We regret to inform you that the GAY FILM NIGHTS International Film Festival is to be postponed for next year, as all of PRIDE Romania’s volunteers have actively been engaged in the campaign to boycott the anti-gay referendum in our country, a campaign which has proven successful. The festival will take place between the 15th and the 21st of April 2019. We will keep you in touch with any new developments regarding the festival. Also, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have additional questions or comments. We would like, once again, to express our appreciation for your work and thank you for your patience.«
Keep fighting the good fight, Romania! Don’t let violence and hatred ruin your spirit! We’re looking forward to travel to Cluj next spring to present our little movie. Love from Berlin and Paris!
