Queer Cinema is also for Straight People
The V&A's LGBTQ is organising a weekend long programme of gay cinema, during which films will be screened that are related to items in the Museum's collection. One film will be shown on Friday evening, and two further movies will each be available for viewing on Saturday and on Sunday. These are from various countries; Canada, the Philippines, Hungary, Germany and Spain. The V&A has also obtained a few short films, made between 1920 and 1960, from British Pathe, and three of these will be shown before each main film. To complete the weekend there will also be introductory talks from V&A staff, and Q&A sessions with special guests.
