Out&Proud: most sincere LGBT short films from all over the world in Kyiv

The founders of the festival didn’t want to expand the programme just adding the films, but they focused on the quality of those films. The festival presents several most worthy movies among the hundreds of LGBT films made last year.
“We have chosen four films free from glorification and exploitation [of the theme], just sincere and plain language by the people, who don’t pretend to be someone who they are not, actually”, said the team of KISFF.
