Levante by Lillah Halla

out of competition | 2023 | Brazil, Uruguay, France | 92’


When volleyball player Sofia seeks an abortion, illegal in Brazil, she finds support from her queer team in fighting fundamentalists. The ongoing surge of right wing ideologies fuels a culture war, turning the body into a contested space. Daily lives, like Sofia’s, are affected by it. Halla’s energetic debut celebrates the importance of community in overcoming intolerance and cultivating self-worth.


> The screening on May 10 includes a panel discussion about queer sport clubs (35’). After the screening you can continue with our queer club night. Get your combi-ticket!

Sprouts Film Festival 2024 | May 7-12

In times of a glitching world, with weather extremes and inhumane conflicts intensifying, it can be tempting to avert your gaze. Instead, Sprouts wants to make the cinema a site for peaceful protest by showing newly released ecocinema and socially critical debut films. All selected features and shorts are fiction, because it is our belief that through the power of imagination we can alter our behaviour for the better and rethink our relationship with the more-than-human world. We are here to make you wonder, to inform, to spark resistance and to nurture fresh talent.


SproutsFF24, our third edition, will be bigger than ever. Our festival locations this year are Studio/K, MACA, Kriterion and Zone2Source. Want to learn more about our SproutsFF24 programme, which also includes a free Eco Expo, a queer club night and a live ecological AV-show? Go to sproutsfilmfestival.com or follow us on Instagram @sproutsfilmfestival and Letterboxd @sproutsff.
