Outview Film Festival participates in Sziget Festival | 14 August 2015


Sziget festival in Budapest is one of the largest music and cultural festivals in Europe with over 1.000 participating artists, many stages and over 400.000 guests per festival, one can even go so far as saying that it is the European Burning Man. It lasts a week and takes place at Obunda, a small island in the Danube.

This year it takes place 10 – 17 August and besides the wonderful musical line-up they have ((Kasabian, Passenger, Ting Tings, Florence and the Machine, and many more), Sziget Festival also features a “hetero friendly” venue called MAGIC MIRROR. Discussions, dj sets, parties, screenings and we are glad to say that this year Outview Film Festival is the guest of honour. On the 14th August we will be screening a two hour programme of short films which have been screened at Outview Festival 2007 – 2015 and we will present to the world a part of the largest queer film event in Greece, which will turn 10 in 2016! We are so excited for this recognition because it gives us the strength and fortitude to carry on and make each year even better than the last one and make Outview Festival a global attracting point for the queer scene.

After the screenings there will be a big party with queer dj Gloria Viagra from Berlin and Micky Friedmann from the Barcelona Circuit. Here you will be able to see all the programme of Magic Mirror at Sziget Festival: http://szigetfestival.com/programs#!programmation=artist$magic-mirror/2317
