One of the best things about this spring’s showings are that the films are being shown at events that are not specifically for queer audiences (Beyond Earth, Stony Brook University, PopUp Anthology, Indie Meme, Workers Unite Film Fest, Bechdel Film Festival and Splice Film Festival). This gives me the opportunity to talk about accessibility, class, and queerness to a broader range of audiences, which is what I’ve always wanted to do. One day I will show my movies at a sports bar!
Here is an updated listing of what’s showing where.
