Queer City Cinema
Three days of some of the most compelling, artful, thoughtful, luminous and curious queer media art from out there and around here.
QCC9 will be a well-textured assemblage of images, characters, ideas, and realities that collide in fantastical, personal, and playful patterns to produce a multi-faceted queer media art viewing experience. Some of the films and videos focus on image, sound and abstract narratives; others present information, facts, and queerforward realities; while others share the pleasure and pain of individual and collective experience and identification. Even though experimental and artistically rigorous artworks are in abundance, and heavy-hitting topics such as feminism, race, class, identity politics, community, colonization, conceptual art, politics, religion, violence, popular culture, gender and of course sexuality are offered for their important role in providing awareness and insight on many levels, transgressive and subversive play is also an important characteristic of several of the films and videos in the festival. In keeping with Queer City Cinema’s mandate to reflect hallmarks of queer image making – in this case, film and video with a decidedly tongue-in-cheek disposition and sensibility; effectively injecting the programming with moments of intelligent, incisive humour – this is film and video that pleases while it appeases.
After sixteen memorable years, this will be the last biennial Queer City Cinema film and video festival, as we will now be presenting the QCC Film and Video Festival on an annual basis every June, along with Performatorium: Festival of Queer Performance every January. More QCC, more queer, more of the time. Enjoy the festival(s) and enjoy the afterglow!
