GAZE at The Complex

GAZE International LGBTQ+ Film Festival partners with The Complex to present new queer film in a gallery setting as an official part of our festival programme for the first time. The gallery programme has been curated from work by local, national and international artists.

Please see below for opening hours and our artist in-conversation events.

All events are free and unticketed.

Programmed by Greg Thorpe and Caoimhe Lavelle


Tuesday 4th–Saturday 8th October

Tues–Fri 10am–5pm, Sat 12–5pm

Filmmakers explore the ground that we walk on, the way that we tread, and the things that we move through. The works in TERRAIN are concerned with the queer body in place and space, generating films that are sensitive, sensual and satirical.
