The Pacific islands region will get its first ever LGBTI short film festival A Night OUT at the Movies when it screens on Friday 6 December at the Fiji School of Medicine’s Pasifika Auditorium in Suva, Fiji.

The event has been organized by the Drodrolagi Movement (droMo) with support from the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, at the Fiji National University.

Drodrolagi is the Fijian word for rainbow – an international symbol of LGBTI pride and diversity – and droMo is a community-based organization in Suva, Fiji whose mission is to create and celebrate a culture of equality, respect, dignity and pride for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer community in Fiji.
