Fringe! East London Queer Film Fest

April 7th, 2012 · No Comments

I am so pleased to count myself among the fantastic group of folks helping to curate and organize the second annual Fringe Film Fest in East London. From 12th - 15th April the neighborhood will be buzzing with a programme of screenings, parties and happenings highlighting some of the best in spunky queer cinema.

I’m especially excited about the event that Sandra Le and I are curating together with Jessica Gysel from Girls Like Us magazine featuring a shorts programme, talk and discussion as part of a (free!) Saturday afternoon lez hang-out at XOYO Gallery, details below.

Here my personal day-by-day highlights, for full programme and booking information visit


Film: Riot Acts - a gorgeous documentary directed by Madsen Minax about “flaunting gender deviance in musical performance” followed by a discussion with the London Trans Filmmakers Group


Film: Audre Lorde: The Berlin Years 1984-1992 - Dagmar Schultz’s documentary pulls together interviews and archival material highlighting Audre Lorde’s profound influence on the Afro-German movement

Shorts: Girls Like Us presents Generations Like Us - a series of short films highlighting queer “generations like us” from various eras and ages, hosted by Girls Like Us magazine and featuring a chat with actress Lisa Gornick and a talk by photograper Holly Falconer

Film: The Gang Girls Trilogy - Katrina Del Mar’s follows the antics of New York City wildchilds up to no good… Roll with it!


Film: Community Action Centre - A.K. Burns & A.L. Steiner present a sociosexual queer porn-romance-liberation film and will be on hand (via Skype) afterwards to deconstruct it all with the audience
