French and Spanish Queer Film

Audiences, Communities and Cultural Exchange

Chris Perriam and Darren Waldron

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Advancing the current state of film audience research, and of our knowledge of sexuality in transnational contexts, French and Spanish Queer Film analyses how French LGBTQ films are seen in Spain and Spanish ones in France. Studying films in various media and platforms, the book examines their reception across four languages (Spanish, French, Catalan, English), considering and engaging with participants across a range of digital and physical audience locations. With a particular focus on LGBTQ festivals, the book draws on a wide sample of individual responses through post-screening questionnaires and focus groups.
