Piotr Media ← click , to whom we already owe Ninja magazine* ← click , has invited a hundred film-directors from the 4 corners of the world (from the USA to Myanmar, via Iran, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Korea, etc. ...), to present on September 29th, 2018, simultaneously in Paris and in San Francisco, their original movies about the COMING OF AGE (first lgbtq love) of the young people from the LGBTQ communities.
Comedies, dramas, music-videos, documentaries, cartoons, etc. … No voyeurism, no exhibition, just the recognition of love for what it is, because LOVE DOESN'T NEED MULTIPLE LABELS : in the face of love, everyone is equal, no matter our sexual orientation. Everyone should have the freedom to love and to pursue their happiness.
* Ninja is the first photography magazine to be published on the Internet, it gathered more than 1.8 million readers and had for Godmother the actress and Icon Marisa Berenson).

Our intention is not to trivialize the fringe of society who, by lack of education, culture or information (sometimes under the influence of religions), still judges violently the different ways of loving.
The idea of the festival is to intervene "in a joyful and creative way" against the discriminations and the harassment to the young people from the LGBTQ communities.

If we can at least make people think about the subject, then the bet will be won. Love shall mot be categorized in multiple labels and it is not acceptable anymore to let it be subject of mockeries.


«  For the girls and the boys of the LGBTQ communities, Coming of Age is all the more important that it comes along with the difficulties bound to the coming-out. Managing the adrenalin of the first emotions are then disrupted by the increase of stress that the attraction for someone of the same sex engenders. This period remains even today a difficult test for numerous teenagers who are sometimes victims of harassment or who can even be rejected by their own family. »
