About the Budapest Lesbian Film Collective

In Hungary, Lesbians are still culturally invisible.
The occasional images of Lesbians in mainstream media are mostly negative, sexist and offensive.
Positive images of Lesbians and Lesbian lifestyle don't exist.
This is why in 2000 we founded the Budapest Lesbian Film Collective,
a group of independent Lesbian filmmakers in Budapest making Lesbian low-budget movies.
