What is entzaubert?
entzaubert is non-commercial. entry to all screenings is by donation. We support the idea of copyleft and creative commons. entzaubert offers a platform for movies, films, documentaries that might not get screened in main­stream commercial festivals.

entzaubert is a Radical Queer Festival
We think that queer is about living your life in a political way which challenges gender and power structures; also that fucking with gender normativity, abolishing borders and fighting for migrants’ and workers’ rights are all part of one struggle.

The capitalist system is based on social inequality. So for us opposing capitalism is connected to the fight against transphobia, homophobia and sexism as well as racism, fascism and militarism.
With entzaubert we want to encourage all the rad queers and feminists out there to get their images and word out to celebrate our community and diversity! Come and be part of it!
