Films beyond the hetero norm: For the fourth summer in a row, the Third Programme of Berlin and Brandenburg is showing great cinema with same-sex love, coming-of-age stories, romance and road movies under the title “rbb QUEER”.

On seven dates from 24. June until 5. August, queer films from Europe will be shown on Thursdays in the late evening, six of them as free-TV premieres. The LGBT works come from France, Belgium, the UK, Sweden, the Netherlands and Germany.

The French water polo sports comedy “The Glittering Prawns” (24.6.) will kick off the festival, followed by, among others, the lesbian German road movie “Bonnie & Bonnie” (1.7.) or the comedy “Benjamin” (15.7.) by British stand-up comedian Simon Amstell.
