The Oldest LGBT Film Festival in Europe Returns to Slovenia

 | 
11/20/2019

The Ljubljana LGBT Film Festival is back for its 35th edition, officially starting Saturday, 23 November, and with events planned for Ptuj, Koper, Maribor, Bistrica ob Sotli, Idrija and Trst (aka Trieste, if you must), although the fun has already been going for more than week. First put on back in 1984 as part of the Magnus Festival – back in the days of mystery VHS tapes showing films recorded from Britain’s Channel 4 to audiences who had no idea what was coming next – it’s the oldest LGBT film festival in Europe, as well as the oldest international film festival in Slovenia. As such it’s a valued part of the country’s cultural calendar, and a nice way to welcome in the festive season.
