As a socially conscious movement with a political purpose, OIA must generate images and representations of its own community that promote a sense of belonging and pride — films that explore a particular identity, lifestyles and concerns. The film week features workshops on scriptwriting, producing, directing and acting, facilitated by industry professionals as well as screenings of local feature films. Learn more about funding for films in production. The Festival set out to address the lack of visibility of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex individuals LGBTIs in South African social and cultural life after decades of apartheid repression, to counter negative images of LGBTIs that prevail in traditional and religious communities, and to serve as a platform for discussion and debate about the situation of LGBTIs in a newly founded democracy.
