In sheer numbers, Lebanon punches well above its weight in film festival terms. New events regularly emerge, each specializing in specific types of cinema or playing to niche audiences.The latest addition to Beirut's bouquet of film platforms is Cinema al-Fouad (literally Cinema of the Heart), which opened at the French Institute's Theatre Montaigne Monday evening. The six-day event is designed to exhibit films by and for members of the Middle East and North Africa region's LGBTQ community. Rasha Younes, a senior research assistant in Human Rights Watch's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights program, who was involved in researching Bailly's work and helped lead Monday evening's panel, spoke to The Daily Star about where Cinema al-Fouad fits in Beirut's jigsaw puzzle of film events.
