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 People’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 film’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.

    Argh. My English is awful when I am speaking Spanish all the time. I meant to say “… that I will not be able to …”

    Pride in Vancouver I can live without but the one thing I will truly miss living in Kelowna, is the VQFF ๐Ÿ™

    Enjoy the festival Rebecca! Will you be reviewing the movies you see? We’ve bought a few of the movies after seeing them at the festival and need to know which ones to pick up.
