Queer Vision Film Festival (Fri 24 June - Sun 10 July), presented by Bristol Pride is bigger than ever this year - continuing to bring you a diverse programme of new release LGBT+ films from around the globe, including independently-made features and award-winning short films. There’ll be tears of joy and heartbreak, conversations started, DJs, dancing and empowerment.
The Festival kicks off with a special, one-night only screening of George Michael Freedom Uncut, on Sat 25 June at 20:00 on what would have been his 59th birthday, before a DJ set and party (complete with beard bar!) in the Café & Bar hosted by Queer Vision's Jo Kimber and Rebecca Ballard.
Festival highlights include Angela Washko's powerful Workhorse Queen on Tue 5 July and Kevin Hegge’s debut, feature-length documentary Tramps! on Thu 30 June, followed by a New Romantic DJ set in the Café & Bar from DJ Jim Carna (Horseplay).
On Sun 3 July we'll be celebrating filmmaker, artist and writer Miranda July with a screening of the brilliantly quirky, Kajillionaire - the screening will be preceded by an equally quirky performance by Roseanna Anderson (Impermanence), in homage to July’s choreographic style in the film.
Finally, Queer Vision have teamed up with Encounters and BFI Film Academy South West, to present Queer Joy 2022 on Thu 7 July, a programme that has been produced by young LGBT+ talent, which incorporates music, performance and plenty of glitter.
These are just a few of the highlights of this year's Queer Vision Film Festival Programme - be sure to check out the whole programme.
Bristol Pride Festival runs from Sat 25 June – Sun 10 July with events across Bristol to celebrate and champion diversity and equality.
