Press Release

After the 2021 mixed edition, face-to-face and virtual, Asterisco continues to multiply the exhibition spaces, maintaining projections and online activities, in continuity with the aim of continuing to add ways to promote the arrival of LGBTIQ+ cinema.

The meeting rooms will be:

Centro Cultural Kirchner
Centro Cultural Conti
Hasta Trilce
Universidad del Cine
Centro Cultural Recoleta

A selection of films participating in this edition can be seen on the CONT.AR platform. Likewise, the Films in Process Competitive Section will take place entirely on the MICA (Cultural Industries Market) platform.


“The ninth edition of Asterisco will follow the path of last year, of continuing to expand the arrival, geographically and culturally, of the festival’s proposal, to delve into the different forms of circulation and transmission of LGBTIQ+ film content. The Festival has always aimed to ensure greater access to films, performances and activities, that inclusion is as complete as possible, proposing many free or very low-cost performances in all editions of Asterisco . Although there is an important presence of national and Latin American films in this edition, we also promote the presence of contemporary international cinema with four Canadian documentaries that explore sexual dissidence in very different areas of culture.”  Diego Trerotola
