GAZE on Tour 2015


GAZE International LGBT Film Festival Dublin, with the support of The Community Foundation Of Ireland, are collaborating with access>CINEMA to bring you the first phase of GAZE on Tour.

GAZE is delighted to collaborate with access>CINEMA and announce the First Phase of GAZE on Tour 2015, screening The Case Against 8 around Ireland in the coming months.

The Case Against 8 is an account of the epic five-year legal battle that overturned Proposition 8. Co-directors Cotner and White take us on a riveting, hold-your- breath, behind the scenes look at the historic Californian trial that overturned the controversial constitutional amendment. The story first made headlines with the unlikely pairing of Ted Olson and David Boies, political foes who last faced off as opposing attorneys in Bush v. Gore. The film also follows the plaintiffs, two gay couples who find their families at the centre of the same-sex marriage controversy. This extraordinary film provides fly-on-the-wall coverage of a trial the public was never allowed to see.

So far GAZE on Tour have 9 confirmed venues, with others still to be announced. Marriage Equality, the Irish Council for Civil Liberties, and GLEN, the Gay and Lesbian Equality Network, will host panel discussions to coincide with the screenings in selected venues. GAZE on Tour has been very successful for the last two years, but this will be the biggest project by far.
