The not-for-profit DIY fest Fringe! Queer Film and Arts Festival, is stepping up its activity. For its fourth edition in 2014, Fringe! will spill out of the confines of a weekend to inhabit a full week of film, art, workshops and parties in various East London venues. The event rooted in London’s queer creative scene is getting bigger, and everyone is welcome!
Fringe! Queer Film and Arts Festival boasts several UK premieres and a visual arts programme that will showcase work created especially for the festival, including filmmaker, producer and archivist Jeffery Hinton‘s new project Willy Nilly, as well as retrospective of the work of Stuart Sandford in the Teen Dream exhibition.
Other exhibitions include Ken. To Be Destroyed by Sara Davidmann, previously shown at Homotopia and further developed especially for Fringe!
NYC art-duo Superm (Slava Mogutin and Brian Kenny) celebrate with Fringe! its 10 successful years of collaboration with a screening of their short films at Forge & Co and an art party inviting the audience of Fringe! to participate in a body painting installation and live photo shoot.
Plus there’s a joint private view of Pauline Boudry / Renate Laurenz: No Future/ No Past and RCA Queer Society: Skin/Cells.
Workshops include ‘The East London Lecture – Theatre Workshop’ in which performance artist Jonny Woo and director Douglas Rintoul explore the development of their upcoming shows.
Fringe! Queer Film and Arts Festival takes place in East London and runs from November 4 to November 9. For times, tickets (where you need them), and venues pop over to the Fringe! Queer Film and Arts Festival site.
