QUEER FAMILY SCREENING:

THE LITTLE MERMAID

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the film that launched a new wave of Disney classics, GAZE is delighted to present The Little Mermaid as this year’s queer family film. A unique screening of the queer and campy classic, with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by the much loved and missed Howard Ashman. Not to mention the legendary Ursula the Seawitch, inspired by none other than John Waters’ drag queen muse herself — Divine!

TRANS AND GENDERQUEER SHORTS

For the first year, the title of this programme has changed to reflect the limitlessness of queer identity, as these trans and gender- non-conforming shorts reflect the plurality and diversity of the stories that exist in the world. A programme of films that are once singular and experimental, while at the same time lovingly traditional and universal - the full richness of pleasure and pain that comes with living freely in a challenging world.

MAKING MONTGOMERY CLIFT

Making Montgomery Clift reexamines Monty’s life, and the many flawed narratives that have come to define him. Drawing from the rich archive of intimate materials gathered by Monty’s brother Brooks, the film provides an altogether more positive perspective of the man, going as far as to re-frame Clift as someone unashamed of his sexuality, who stood in bold defiance of the restrictions placed on him by the Hollywood studio system.

IRIS PRIZE SHORTS

Composed of reflections on contemporary queer youth, our 2019 Iris Shorts collection collates brave, bold and sometimes brutal stories of LGBT adolescence. Demonstrating current preoccupations in this type of coming-of-age storytelling, these films are radical, realistic and contain important articulations on both the internal and external lives of gay youth in the present day.
