17th Festival Program - 2005
The Cineffable team is proud to present its 17th edition of the “Quand les lesbiennes se font du cinéma” (When Lesbians Make Movies) festival.
This edition has also been placed under the sign of integration. A particular effort has been made to make the festival more accessible to deaf and hearing-impaired lesbians. All the films (both French and foreign) shown at the festival this year have been sub-titled, and organisers will be available to provide a welcome and information in sign language for any women who wish it.
Lastly, this edition has been placed under the sign of European activism: indeed, this year we will have both the honour and the pleasure of receiving the European representatives of the lesbian associations meeting in Paris this week for the annual International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA) conference. They will be coming to join us and will be present at opening night of our festival.So the doors of the Trianon Theatre have been thrown wide open to you, ladies: come discover the films, art exhibit, opening-night concert, live performances, stands and cafeteria; come meet the filmmakers and exhibiting artists; come join in the debates at the Halle Saint Pierre.

Also before or after your lunch break you will be able to attend and
participate to the daily discussions and debates
held in the Halle Saint-Pierre. This year :
Also scheduled is a poetry/slam session during which several writers and authors will come to read and bring life to their work (in english).
Before we part, you will discover the final film from Céline Jacquier, Quand les cheveux s’en mêlent, winner of the script competition in 2003, and as usual the team’s favourite and the public’s favourite.
In summary, this edition 2005 should be rich, offering a wide variety of events, emotions and discussions. Don’t miss it!
