Lesgaicinemad – Festival Internacional de Cine LGBTIQ+de Madrid

LesGaiCineMad is the most important LGBTI + themed festival in Spanish-speaking countries, both in viewers and reach, as well as in number of films. LesGaiCineMad was created with the aim of giving visibility to this group. During 25 editions, and with the support of Fundación Triángulo, the festival has screened more than a hundred titles in its Official Section; some of them, on several occasions thanks to our diffusion, have been able to premiere in commercial theaters despite financial limitations.

The International LGBTIQ+ Madrid Film Festival accepts films of all nationalities with
LGBTIQ themes, which may be eligible for the various sections of the festival: Feature
Films (Official Section and Panorama International), Short Films and Video Art, and
Documentaries. The works must not have previously premiered in Spanish cinemas, been
broadcast on Spanish television or made available to the public on the Internet or any other
media in Spanish territory prior to the festival (due to Covid-19 situation, the festival
organization may set exceptions in this regard), and must have been copyrighted no earlier
than 1/1/2020. All feature films must be yet unreleased in the Community of Madrid; in the
case of the shorts films, this will not be considered a prerequisite, but will be considered
positively. The organization reserves the right to include films that do not meet these
conditions in the program, albeit not a part of the Festival’s official contest.


Acceptable formats for screening (in order of preference) are: digital formats (ProRes HD,
AVI HD, MP4 HD) and physical formats (Blu Ray). No DVDs are accepted for screening.
The DCP format will only be accepted if audio or subtitles are available in Spanish. The
festival will not return any physical materials used for display unless prepaid postage is
