Pride / Queer Mais Trash 2024

This year, we’ll be in the official catalog for Brussels Pride week 2024. A best of from the Courts + Queer Mais Trash 2024 festival, including sexually explicit films. A godsend for those who couldn’t find tickets in January. See you on May 15 at the Aventure cinema. It’s free, but reservations are required, and only via the cinema’s website (for adults only).

A screening organized with the Center for Equal Opportunities of the City of Brussels, equal.brussels & Rainbow House.


Call For Entries

The call for submissions is open on Filmfreeway ! Submit NOW, this year we won’t be able to extend it as usual ! We welcome films of all genres and formats, including feature films!

Courts Mais Trash on tour

We’ll be back at BIFFF for a carte blanche of the best genre, provocative and, above all, tasteless films from last January’s festival. All the info and progra are on their website.


Friends of the BSFF invite us for another carte blanche!

2 different screenings for 2 times the fun (not too trashy), taking place at Flagey on Friday, April 26 at 10:00 pm and Thursday, May 02 at 9:30 pm, for a selection of recent films as well as a few archives (we’ve pulled out some old files for our upcoming 20th anniversary!).

In addition to this program, we’re privileged to be included in the cult Nuit du Court on Saturday April 27 in Flagey’s splendid Studio 4.

Full details are available on theBSFFwebsite .


In May, we’re off to the Greeks for our friend Menelas’ “Satyrs and Maenads” festival. A retrospective of sexually explicit films from our archives, as well as more committed films tackling the issues of sexworkers.
