Welcome to the website of QUEER-Streifen Regensburg.

The 13th QUEER-Streifen Film Festival Regensburg takes place from October 17th to 23th 2024 at the Kinos im Andreasstadel. We are looking forward to seeing you!


  • Pride Month: GROSSE FREIHEIT (Great Freedom)

    On Wednesday, June 26th at 7:00 PM the QUEER-Streifen will show on the occasion of the Pride Month once again the movie GROSSE FREIHEIT (Great Freedom) by Sebastian Meise which won the Audience Award Best Feature Film in 2021.

    Große Freiheit recalls the memory of the oppression of homosexuals in Germany through § 175 StGB. For 120 years, this paragraph criminalized sex between men. Franz Rogowski plays the homosexual Hans, who is regularly criminalized because of his sexual orientation. His cellmate Viktor (played by Berlinale winner Georg Friedrich) is his only constant companion. The inhumane treatment in prison and the daily harassment to which he is subjected are almost physically palpable for the audience.
    Große Freiheit reveals itself as a decades-spanning epic of a longing for love – which was rightly awarded this year’s Special Jury Prize in Cannes. A film that impresses both through its narrative and the magnificent acting.

    The admission is free.

    Audience Award Best Feature Film QUEER-Streifen Regensburg 2023

    LEVANTE (Power Alley)
    by Lillah Halla, Brazil, Uruguay, France, 2023

    Sofia is about to join a professional volleyball team when she finds out about her unwanted pregnancy. Her career dream seems to be shattered, because in her home country of Brazil, abortion is a punishable offense. This presents the 17-year-old with almost impossible hurdles. But the uncompromising solidarity of her team – all part of the LGBTQ+ community – and Sofia’s father give her courage again and again to stand up to the fundamentalist legislation.
    Powerful, queer and encouraging, Lillah Halla’s first feature-length film is a social critique, a father-daughter story as well as a sensitive love story and was screened at Cannes 2023. Hate and violence ultimately lead themselves ad absurdum in Power Alley and cannot stop the victory of the struggling women. So “Levante!”, cheer up!

    The jury, consisting of Katja Briesemeister, Katharina Kellner, and Stefan Langthaler, awards the main prize 2023 to:

    Jury Award Best Short Film – QUEER-Streifen Regensburg 2023

    Elisabeth Kratzer, Germany, 202

    Statement of the jury:

    We saw many strong contributions in the short film programme – films that enriched us, touched us and made us laugh. Despite the high quality of the short film submissions, we did not have to discuss our favourite for long. The choice fell quickly and very clearly on a film that overwhelmed us in a positive sense.

    The director of this film relies entirely on her strong protagonist, whom she stages cleverly and with a sensitive eye. Accompanied by calm, unagitated images, her story can unfold its full power. In a wonderful way, the film builds a bridge between the past and the present: it tells of the past and encourages people of today.

    The film tells an extraordinary life story – that of a woman who made an unheard-of decision in a small Bavarian town in the 1960s: To be completely herself. With great self-confidence and an incredible amount of courage, she defied many difficulties, hostility and danger. We watch and listen to her spellbound and let ourselves be deeply touched – the merit of an impressive personality, but also of documentary storytelling at the highest level.

    The QUEER-Streifen Jury Award 2023 goes to the film “Angelique” by director Elisabeth Kratzer.
