SFG 2007 in the newspapers
A couple of
press articles have started appearing in the local and
national publications. On Clujeanul.ro you can find an ample
“Festival gay la Cluj”,
professionally written by Sebastian Secan.
We can’t say the same thing about the lines written by Alin
Ionescu, author of the article
“Andreea is missing in the LGBT top”
from Cotidianu, article written –by ear-, without actually
getting a bit better informed and actually finding out that
the section “The sexiest woman” actually exists for the Gala
of the Gay Prizes 2007.
Like always, CanCan had a great impact with the article
“The idols of the gay people”.
The materials was read and laughed at in a pathetic way, both
by Mircea Badea in the “In the press’ mouth” show, but also by
the two presenters of the “Dimineata Dementa” show from Radio
21. Nevertheless, we thank them for promoting the event.
Also, a brilliantly informed article, complex and still
impartial was published in the “Monitorul de Cluj”, called
“European contest of cinematography”.
The article was written by Florentina Tatar.

Besides the LGBT artistic movies running during the event, the
festival will also host for the first time an international

creativity with an anti-discrimination message. The contest is
known as "Home Made Movies".
Two photo exhibitions, a theater performance and public
debates are just some of the main
events of a splendid edition to come.
One of the most important spotlight events will be the "Gala
of the Gay Prizes 2007" where, just like in the previous
editions, awards will be granted to personalities of the
public Romanian life that have supported and gotten involved
into the LGBT community from Romania.
And as it has been in the last three editions, entrance is
free, yet another reason for everyone to join.
