Filmfest homochrom 2018: Top 5 Gay Films

Our 5 Top Gay Films Homochrom Filmfest 2018 in the German cities Cologne and Dortmund. It’s October, the Oktoberfest in Munich is over, and the trees are turning all orange and red, while it’s getting cooler. It’s cinema time again, not only in Germany! We from Couple of Men had an inspiring talk with festival director Martin Wolkner about the program of the 8th Filmfest homochrom in Cologne and Dortmund in the western part of Germany. The LGBT film festival has quickly become the second-largest among a very active crowd of two dozens of queer film festivals all around Germany. (Then again Cologne is still the gayest city in Germany, isn’t it?) But homochrom has also been one of the up-and-coming festivals to look for rare film discoveries and gay movie surprises.

The only thing how you two can be in contact is to chat via apps, Skype, and, of course, to travel. But despite the distance between you and your love, the only thing that really matters to you is that you are in love.

Scar Tissue Dutch Gay Short Movie – Imagine you are living in a homophobic country where there is no other way than hiding your love for the human being you want to be with. On top of that, your home country is the battleground of a civil war. To survive and being able to see a future for yourself, there is only one thing you can do: leave your place of birth behind and try to find somehow peace in a world totally different from where you’re coming from. Scar Tissue, the Dutch short movie, written and directed by Nish Gara and produced by Martijn Krediet tries to show in 13 emotional minutes how a casual hook-up between a Syrian refugee and a Dutch gay man, can end up being more difficult than you would think.
