On Out Jove, seven short films will be screened LGTBI. The selection is made by Out! Affititious Diversity Cinema Show of the Balearic Islands and the Fire! International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival of Barcelona. Isabel Coixet, Isaki Lacuesta and Carla Subirana are among the chosen directors.

At the end of the session, there will be a pedagogical explanation by Ben Amics, inviting young people attending the debate. In addition, the initiative seeks to be a meeting place where entities such as Ben Amics, Balears Diversa, Thaki Runa, Alas and Transitam can provide information.
