about the festival

Transition International Queer & Minorities Film Festival showcases the diversity of minorities within the LQBTIQA+ spectrum. Every year in Vienna, Austria, we use film as a way to confront, break stereotypes and engage our audience using discussions, workshops and lectures. We aim to increase visibility and initiate dialogue on migration, women*, people of color, refugees, dis/ability, trans*, religion and more. Being minorities within a minority – our struggles, stories and his*herstories are often erased or are portrayed simplistically in one-dimensional ways, often laden with stereotypes.


So, unable to find ourselves in mainstream and queer cinema, Transition was born in 2012 to provide a positive space for storytelling and use film as a tool to inform, educate and entertain. Previously the festival was known as the “Internationale Queere Migrantische Filmtage” (International Queer Migrant Film Days) and what formerly began as a small event has evolved into a festival lasting several days fully packed with guests, exhibitions, and lectures. Together with a film program consisting of classic and contemporary films including shorts, documentaries and feature-length films; old faces and industry newcomers; local and international guests, we come together to celebrate the diverse nature of being Queer.
