Luciano Castillo, in order to create a programme based on either awarded and well-known current films selected during the annual editions by its director, filmmaker and Catalan film critic Xavier-Daniel. In this way, an initiative that took place 24 years ago in Spain is consolidated, when he founded and directed in Barcelona the first LGTIB Film Festival, then the audience was able to watch, for the first time, films that were not screened in our country commercial cinemas. Xavier-Daniel will repeat this deed in a country where the public has not the chance to see these films, and it will be possible now because the transition has begun in Cuba. The prestige of the National Film Library in Cuba has taken it into consideration and has appraised that the continuity of this schedule will make the Cuban audience enjoy this event addressed to those who are looking forward to their concerns accomplished. Since just a few films are screened, the cinema entrance is very crowded, mainly because after the Festival these films will no longer be seen, and this is an exception which only takes place during the annual Festival of New Latin American Cinema. On those days, the Spanish cinema-goers would cross the France border just for attending the Art and Essay Movie sessions, therefore those famous week-ends became a real sociological phenomenon.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender LGBT rights in Spain have undergone several significant changes over the last decades to become one of the most advanced in the world. Among ancient Romans in Spain , sexual interaction between men was viewed as commonplace and marriages between men occurred during the early Roman Empire, but a law against homosexuality was promulgated by Christian emperors Constantius II and Constans , and Roman moral norms underwent significant changes leading up to the 4th century Laws against sodomy were later established during the legislative period. They were first repealed from the Spanish Code in , but changed again along with societal attitudes towards homosexuality during the Spanish Civil War and Francisco Franco 's regime. Throughout the late- 20th century , the rights of the LGBT community received more awareness and same-sex sexual activity became legal once again in with an equal age of consent to heterosexual intercourse.
