About the Festival: The festival originated as Sunny Bunny at Molodist, which has been a part of the festival since 2001. Molodist was the second major international film festival in the world after the Berlinale and Teddy, which introduced a special award for films on the topic of LGBTQIA+. It launched a special program for this purpose, which later evolved into Sunny Bunny as a competition for feature films and non-competition screenings of documentaries, short films, and queer classics.
