One of the things I love about this city is its diversity – ethnically, culturally, socially and everything in between. We seem to find a way to celebrate all walks of life and invite others to do the same. Today, the Vancouver Queer Film Festival kicks off for a week of parties, gala celebrations, and of course, film.
I have a festival pass so I’ll reporting back on some of the above and I am also sharing the love thanks to the VQFF with a movie pass giveaway:
Confessions of a Sorta Str8 Drag King
Saturday, August 23, 2008, 7:00 PM
Cinemark Tinseltown (3rd floor, 88 West Pender St)
“Alexis Fosse Mackintosh (Let No One Put Asunder, 2004 Vancouver Queer Film Festival Peopleâ€™s Choice Award winner) returns to the Festival with another documentary, this time investigating the complex (and raunchy and fun) arena of drag king performance and gender identity… …From a personal account of the public presentation of sexuality, to a discussion about the radical position that femme identities occupy in queer communities, interviews with the filmâ€™s
subject add valuable dimension to issues of contemporary queer culture.” [VQFF]
This is the world premiere of the movie and the director (Alexis Fosse Mackintosh) will be in attendance. If you would like to attend simply leave a comment below. A winner will be drawn on August 20th and will be able to attend the screening with a guest.
