Queer/ing Film Festivals: A Conversation
Join Goethe Pop Up Seattle for a conversation on the changing landscape of LGBTIQ+ cinema in Germany and the US.
Our guests from Germany include:
• Wieland Speck (filmmaker, consultant, and long-time director of the Panorama section of the Berlin International Film Festival)
• Skadi Loist (Visiting Professor for Production Cultures in Audiovisual Media Industries at the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF)
• Zoya Honarmand (organizer, film programmer, and curator at TransFormations: Trans* Film Festival Berlin).
Joined by Kathleen Mullen of Seattle’s Three Dollar Bill Cinema and Seattle Queer Film Festival, they will discuss the role of film festivals and curations in amplifying voices of LGBTIQ+ communities.
This event is part of Queer as German Folk, a project celebrating the intersectional histories of Germany’s and America’s diverse LGBTIQ+ communities. A digitally modified version of the exhibition Queer as German Folk and a full program of virtual events is presented by the Goethe-Institut in North America in collaboration with its Goethe Pop Ups and the Schwules Museum Berlin (SMU).
The event will take place online on Zoom. Registration is required.
