Queer Voices Filmmaking workshop (5th edition) 
The Queer Voices International Film Festival, 5th edition, invites filmmaking enthusiasts from the Moldovan queer community, supporters of the LGBTQIA+ community and every interested person in the field with any filmmaking background to be a part of the Queer Voices Filmmaking Workshop, that will take place between 28 November - 4 December, 2022. 

The goal of the workshop is to encourage  individuals interested in film in raising awareness about the challenges the Moldovan and global queer community faces every day. If you strive for the queer community's empowerment and want to make their voice heard, apply for this workshop right away!

You will be working with filmmaking professionals and renown queer cinema tutors. You will be guided through the way of documentary filmmaking, by improving your technical and thinking skills, and by challenging your inner-selves to discover new ways of making the queer community stronger than ever.

The trainer for this edition is Panagiotis Evangelidis, writer and director, known for ”They Glow in the Dark” (2013), ”Xenia” (2014) and ”Irving Park” (2019).

The workshop will take place in Chișinău in offline format, with certain online sessions.
The workshop will result in a few film pieces created by our participants. The films will be presented in the last day of the Queer Voices International Film Festival.
