About the Torino GLBT Film Festival1

The Torino GLBT Film Festival was founded in 1986 by filmmakers Ottavio Mai and Giovanni Minerba. For three years, Mai and Minerba proposed the idea of a GLBT film festival to the Turin Provincial Council and the City Council of Turin, but both organizations ignored the proposal.

In 1985, the new Councillor for Culture, Marziano Marzano, supported the festival’s founding, and since then, the festival has regularly premiered the works of influential filmmakers, including Gus Van Sant and John Waters.
