In the page's words:

homochrom began in 2009 as a monthly queer film series in Dortmund and expanded in 2010 to six of the largest NRW cities where, surprisingly, no such cinema series was offered either: Bochum, Essen, Oberhausen, Düsseldorf, Cologne, and in the meantime also in Wuppertal and Krefeld. In 2011, a new queer film festival was additionally founded in Cologne and Dortmund, which quickly grew to become the second largest queer film festival in Germany.and was very successful until 2018 with many exciting German premieres like in 2015"The Normal Heart" with Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts and Jim Parsons. In 2017, the festival was pleased to welcome Oscar-nominated producer Duncan Kenworthy ("Four Weddings and a Funeral," "Notting Hill" and "Indeed.... Love") as a guest, who presented his heart project"The Pass," a theatrical adaptation about two gay footballers, one of them Russell Tovey ("Looking"). Among the many German premieres in 2018 was again a film with - and this time by - Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"), a theatrical adaptation by transgender director Silas Howard ("Transparent").

Well, the Filimfest and the film series are history, but since then homochrom has developed some new programs, such as since 2019 the contemporary witness interview series Couch Talks, many of which have been released as videos and fill our Living Library with life and real stories.

And since 2021, when there was no comparable active festival in the EU, we founded the Litfest homochrom in Cologne, which will take place from 27.10.-05.11.2023 for the third time and will feature reading guests such as TV presenter Jochen Schropp, award-winning author Anne Freytag with her fourteenth novel, British historian Tom Crewe, whose debut was celebrated in England this spring, Maria Braig, Yotutuber Tommy Toalingling, book blogger Lea Kaib and, among many others, Düsseldorf graphic artist Peer Jongeling, who will talk with WDR journalist Marija Bakker about her graphic novel "Emil:ia," the semi-autobiographical tale of detransition - until now quite a taboo topic, which we gently get to the bottom of.

By the way, the next Couch Talks will take place shortly before on 19.10., the topic this time:"Das Gezeiten - lesbian scene in Cologne" at the Filmhaus, where also the documentary film of the same name from 2015 about the scene gastronomy (1999-2013) in the Agnesviertel.
