FUN DAY - SEPTEMBER 2

Come and enjoy a fun time in the historic, air-conditioned environment of El Retiro cinema, with a cool drink and some fresh popcorn. Our schedule includes the award winning Brit-flicks, “Little Devil’, the sexy street gang thriller ‘Shank’ and ‘FAQs’ about a vigilante drag queen wreaking vengeance on those who prey on young, homeless gay men.

SHORTY SHORTS DAY - SEPTEMBER 3

We’re scheduling a whole afternoon of some of the most unique, entertaining and challenging short films currently available. Some are getting their world premier and others have never been seen in Spain or Cataluña before. You can also see on the big screen,  the beautiful animated film that took the internet by storm this summer, ‘In A Heartbeat’. Our selection includes short films from Cataluña, Spain, Peru, Mexico, USA and UK.

TOTAL DIVERSITY DOCUMENTARIES - SEPTEMBER 4

Escape the baking heat for a while and broaden your horizons with our unique collection of documentary films showing the broad diversity of the queer community, in the comfort of our air-conditioned cinema. See the quintessential odd couple of BayBJane and CyberSissy in Tim Lienhard’s arthouse film ‘One Zero One’ and learn about the transgender community on the French Riviera in the 1950s with the beautiful movie, ‘Bambi’.

BACK2BACK SEQUELS - SEPTEMBER 5

We’re showing movie sequels, back to back for the first time ever, including Michelle Ehlen’s lesbian romantic comedy trilogy, starting with Butch Jamie. We also have the star of cinema’s first true gay superhero movie, Surge of Power flying in from the USA for a personal appearance and to introduce his two movies, “Surge of Power: The Stuff of Heroes” and “Surge of Power: Revenge of the Sequel”. Bring your own superhero costume and get yourself on Surge’s online video blog, ‘Big City Chronicles’ as well having a photo opportunity with the big man himself!

BEAR DAY - SEPTEMBER 6

As well as some great Spanish bear comedies we have a special guest appearance by Rick Copp (producer of The Brady Bunch Movie) who produces and stars in the hit comedy series ‘Where The Bears Are’. He’ll be introducing two feature-length movies from the series and giving away autographed DVD box-sets to some lucky winners in the audience. There will be photo opportunities too.

Welcome to the inaugural La Palma Rosa LGBTi Festival of Film & Culture Sitges 2017!

ABOUT SITGES

Sitges has been an artist center for more than 150 years, thanks to its landscape, social activity and its theaters, attracting from the painters of the Luminist School through Santiago Rusiñol, who established his art center in the city at the end of the 19th century, known as Cau Ferrat, making the town a modernist point of reference.

Sitges is also internationally positioned as a gay friendly destination for the open and tolerant mindset of its inhabitants that has made visitors feel welcome.

In addition, the city has several movie theaters and hosts the world famous Festival Internacional de Cinema Fantàstic de Catalunya in October, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this 2017.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Sitges has always lacked a film festival dedicated to LGBTi movies and La Palma Rosa fills that void, in a region which is a key destination for LGBT holidaymakers – often referred to as ‘The Spanish Riviera’. Our intended audience includes: local residents, national & international tourists. Sitges has an above average number of LGBTi residents (estimated to be as high as 20%) with the town being home to over 28,500 people – in the summer, tourism raises that number to as much as 300,000.
SPACE
Festival events include: 4 days of feature length movies & documentaries with personal appearances by stars, producers & directors, cabaret shows by performers from New York & London and a night of art-house theatre. Through promotion locally and internationally, La Palma Rosa will attract film festival patrons with unique content and creative scheduling.
