The Other Database...

We do strive to include every film that has been screened at the LGBT film festivals around the world.

Life does become a little more difficult when they [the films] don’t have an IMDb entry...therefore, they end up here...films in dire need of publicity/promotion/marketing...

Eduardo Punset ha viajado por toda Europa en busca de respuestas entrevistando a expertos aporta su visión sobre la relación entre neuroanatomía y orientación sexual, las diferencias de la estructura cerebral en gays y lesbianas, e incluso de la importancia de la genética a la hora de encontrar una identidad sexual.

The profound and candid commentary is based on an interview with Tuulikki Pietilä and on the short stories written by Tove Jansson.
