Sex Sirens -Max Kutschenreuter & Poppy Sanchez (The Netherlands, 2019)
Sex Sirens explores one of the hottest categories of the Dutch ballroom scene. While preparing to walk at the Circus ball in Amsterdam, four Sex Sirens reflect on their journey within ballroom culture, and their relation to a category that is all about seduction, sensuality, and sexual empowerment. As we follow them on this journey of self exploration we get a better understanding for what it means to be a Sex Siren and why these safe spaces are absolutely necessary in the world we live in today. Language: Dutch with English subtitles

Fabulous – Audrey Jean-Baptiste, (French Guyana, 2019)
Lasseindra Ninja, the main character of the film, is a well-known artist in France’s voguing scene. After building her career through the balls of New York, France and Brazil, among many other main stages, she returns to her home country to introduce voguing in French Guiana. A glimpse of self-liberation and freedom of expression through the body. Language: French with English subtitles

Father Figure – Bibi Fadlalla (The Netherlands, 2019)
For young black gay men navigating the world can be a disturbing experience. As Kiki House founder Guilliano (26) explains: “being black and gay means being two steps behind in life”. In this narrative collage film Guilliano and his friends share personal experiences of homophobia, racism and marginalization in everyday life and the ways in which they find solace and community.
