2018 Bristol Pride Film Festival Screenings

Queer Vision

Curated by Bristol Pride, Queer Vision is the Bristol Pride film festival and presents a diverse programme of LGBT+ films from around the globe, including independently-made feature, animation and award-winning short films.

Our focus is on widening engagement, increasing audience viewing and screening opportunities of and for LGBT+ content films and filmmakers.

Starting as a film festival as part of Bristol Pride when the BFI stopped touring the annual LGBT+ film festival, the festival has grown and grown and now hold regular events and activities outside of Pride including partnership with national release LGBT+ films throughout the year.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch came to life as a queer nightclub act in late-90s New York inspiring the film and 4 times Tony Award winning Broadway musical hit.
 
Hedwig, born male as Hansel in East Berlin, fell in love with an American G.I. and underwent a Gender Confirmation Surgery in order to marry him and flee to the West. Unfortunately, nothing worked out quite as it was supposed to – years later, Hedwig is leading her rock band on a tour of the U.S., telling her life story through a series of concerts at Bilgewater Inn seafood restaurants. Her tour dates coincide with those of arena-rock star Tommy Gnosis, a wide-eyed boy who once loved Hedwig – but then left with all her songs.
 
This film is a must see in any queer catalogue and has a cult status but if it was made today, would they be able to get away with it?

QFN is a strategic Film Hub Wales project and receives support from the BFI Film Audience Network.
 
BFI Comedy genius is a nationwide season supported by funds from the National Lottery, led by Film Hub Midlands on behalf of the BFI UK Film Audience Network.
 
Films will be captioned for D/deaf and Hard of Hearing audiences and the introduction and panel will be BSL Interpreted
