Once again, we will be awarding the Pink Dragon Prize at the LGBT Film Festival, as chosen by the international jury. This year's jury consists of:
Iztok Klančar is a storyteller and teacher who works with moving images. Based in Amsterdam, he makes experimental films and teaches at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. He rewrites personal stories and observations into fictional narratives and scripts which reveal the inner lives of our sexual personae. In his recent work, Remembering the Nights in Safe Haven (2020), Klančar addressed the sudden disappearance of nightlife in the queer community in Amsterdam. He is currently working on an immersive film installation and performance (Stories) that draws its source from the darker side of queer intimacy.
