In this bilingual (Portuguese and English edition) publication, Queer Film and Culture seeks to provide the national and international public thorough knowledge of Queer Portuguese cinema, taking it from obscurity while bringing together, in one volume, the most relevant set of documentation of the festival.

Livro Cinema e Cultura Queer

According to Cascais and Ferreira, “this publication fills a void in the national bibliography on the subject, and there is no other publication with the same purpose and amplitude, that serve as a reference for future studies, not only in the context of Queer Cinema, but also in the global study of Portuguese Cinema.”

Queer Film and Culture sells in bookshops for €15.00.
