The importance of film and dialogue festivals with focus on minorities
Film festivals are usually cultural events that promote cinema. Besides being culturally important, film festivals have also been a vital source for bringing attention to socio-political issues. 
Since 2005, more than 300 film festival started around the world, and most of these festivals showcase cinema that represents minorities issues to promote and create dialogue about the acceptance and tolerance towards minorities in their local populations. Furthermore, some festivals specifically focus on multiple-identities or minorities within minorities: Queer, trans*, migrants and People of Color (POC) around the world. Aks International Minorities Festival will host a talk with curators and activists to shed light upon the facts and details of why such festivals are important and how such niche festivals are affecting our ability to understand the discourse of multiple identities. 

“Kiki” is an underground subset of the New York ball scene that celebrates uniqueness and creativity while serving as the training ground for hopeful young queer and transgender people of color. It also provides a crucial opportunity to address a disproportionate susceptibility to homelessness, violence, and HIV amongst this subculture. We witness the steady hands and strong voices of seven people as they help to unify a community as fragile as it is flamboyant, while readying the runway for success. Among them, Twiggy, the film’s co-writer, gracefully serves as Kiki’s primary political advocate; Chi Chi compassionately carries out his house mother duties; and Gia effectively navigates transitioning while emboldening others to do the same.
