Directors, producers, distributors

The Festival FACE A FACE is one of the most important LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) film festival in France!

Every year at the end of November it shows a selection of full-length and short films to a large audience.

On the Short Film Night a panel of professional judges awards four Prizes (Best film, Best Original Screenplay, Special Award, Honorary Award). The audience awards two Prizes (Best Full-length film, Best Short film).

Furthermore, all along the year FACE A FACE organizes decentralized showings in the region Rhone-Alpes.

It is the founder member of the European Network ARC-LGBT which federates many festivals and as such is invited to present its selections and winner films at special showings in other festivals.
