The Mawjoudin Queer Film Festival” is an annual film festival in Tunisia celebrating the LGBT community. It began in 2018, as the first queer film festival in the country and all of North Africa. The focus is on queer identities, especially in people from the Global South. The festival conceives of itself as audacious; it deals more with the intersectional approach in the fight against gender-based discriminations and repression. Its unprecedented screening program rhymes with discoveries, stimulate reflection and aspire to illuminate basic notions that are blurred or even erroneous in the collective unconscious. The third edition was meant to take place in March 2020, but due to the pandemic of COVID-19, it got postponed to next year, in March 2021.
