It consists of screenings from Latin America and Spain, seminars, workshops and roundtables organised in cooperation with local partners.

KISS OFF!
a global initiative
June 28 - July 4, 2014

During this week people around the world are encouraged to share a photo or vine video of a same-sex kiss in the name of love, equality and human rights. It is a creative way to challenge societal homophobia and bring awareness to the persecutions people face because of their sexual orientation and identity. It is also a way to visually celebrate life and love, and it is using art to educate and unite.

BREDA LARKIN ON TOUR
Breda Larkin is a lesbian comedian and performance artist who is taking her one woman comedy 'The Word of Breda' on a tour of Ireland this year, visiting the small and big towns of Ireland via the lesbian and gay network. She has asked us to put her press release on our notice board:

"The Word of Breda
, previously performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and the Dublin Gay Theatre Festival, explores life through the triple lenses of sexuality, religion and em...facial hair.
My plan is to perform my show in small, smaller and smallest Irish towns, while at the same time exploring themes of comedy, sexuality, religion and gender (...and possibly facial hair) through interactions with members of each community.  My travels begin on the 3rd of June in Ballydehob via Ballinspittle and will finish on the 15th of August in Ballinasloe (my hometown). Now, I just need LGBTQ people to stay with. Anyone out there willing to put me up for 2 nights while I perform my show in your town?"

 You can contact her on thewordofbreda@gmail.com

Swift Satire Festival, Trim brings

POETRY IN MOTION

to Temple Bar TradFest 2013, Dublin

Venue: Fownes St. Lower/Temple Bar Square, and its environs
Times: Saturday 26th at the Temple Bar TradFest, 12 noon, 2.30pm, 4pm


It’s poetry. And it’s on the move from street to street.
You stand on the soapbox and you proclaim verse to the passers-by. Some stop to listen, others hasten onwards.
Poetry in Motion is open to all visitors, who are invited to dip into our bag of poetry books and read aloud a poem of their choice. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it! And it doesn’t cost anything.
This simple recipe has been a big hit in our annual Swift Satire Festival, Trim. Some people come along in period costume, stand in the queue and wait their turn to read outside the local supermarket or the Credit Union or the video store. Others take a few minutes from their shopping to stand and listen; some of these eventually pluck up the courage to step forward and read or recite their favourite poem — and 20 minutes later they’re still there, listening or declaiming! Take our word for it: it’s addictive!
Every half-hour or so, the soapbox is picked up and the group moves to a different location or a different street.

Austen + the Irish queer connection


Jane Austen scholar and blogger Arnie Perlstein has written a number of amazing miniature essays on the goddess herself. In the blog entry below, he discusses his discovery of a subtextual lesbian link between Pride and Prejudice and the sensational lives of the Irish ‘Ladies of Llangollen’.

The Ladies were two aristocratic women from Kilkenny who, in 1778, eloped to Whales and set up household together. Their ‘perfect friendship’ became a key referent and a pilgrimage destination for educated queer people in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. A selection of The Ladies’ diary and letters, wonderfully prepared by editor Elizabeth Mavor, was published by Penguin a few years ago under the title A Year with the Ladies of Llangollen.

As for Austen, the character of Charlotte in Pride and Prejudice, the best friend of the protagonist Elizabeth, has been read by some critics as lesbian. Here is some exciting new scholarship on the Charlotte-Elizabeth relationship, published by Perlstein just as it is being researched (check his blog for updates).

Enjoy!

GAZE!
Dublin LGBTQ Film Festival
2-6 August 2012


GAZE has launched this year's program. And a very fine one it is too! Plenty of good films for everyone. The Opening Film alone has us levitating in anticipation: Circumstance (2011), an Iranian co-production, promises to be a fine addition to the absolutely extraordinary outpouring of brilliant films associated with the country in the last few years. The director of this groundbreaking lesbian film, the Iranian-American Maryam Keshavarz, has been forbidden to set foot on Iranian soil by the government. For anyone who thinks films are harmless pastimes, here is a reminder that cinema matters. It is a powerful tool. It can change lives.



GAZE program and Festival information: www.gaze.ie
from all of us at the Dublin Film Qlub, best wishes to the GAZE Festival team!

Traces of the Flood
by Denis Kehoe

a groundbreaking literary event

Denis Kehoe's new novel is a multimedia experience/experiment:
the novel will be serialised on the internet,
sections will be read by actors,
fragments will be dropped at local spots
,
extracts will be posted to strangers.

And it's all happening in...
STONEYBATTER, DUBLIN!!!



[PRESS RELEASE]

Traces of the Flood is the new novel by Denis Kehoe, author of Nights Beneath the Nation and Walking on Dry Land. Traces of the Flood is a novel written as a realistic diary/notebook and will be serialised on the Internet as a blog over a seven month period, beginning on 13th July 2012. The project is a site-specific work, related to Stoneybatter and its surrounding area, exploring how a family’s history, as well as an individual’s psyche, can be mapped onto a specific urban space. The diary entries that form the novel will be edited and uploaded to the Internet every day. They will also be printed, aged and sent through the post to a different person connected with the area each day. In addition to this, daily entries will be left in various spots in the district. Readings will take place in homes, shops and other settings, with the author, as well as the residents of these homes, shops etc, reading from the novel. An ‘invisible campaign’ has already started, with copies of the title graphic printed, aged, tied with ribbon and dispersed throughout the Phoenix Park and the streets of Stoneybatter.

A notebook brimming with musings, drawings, songs and quotations, Traces of the Flood is the story of an everyday guy living in an ambiguous, post-colonial urban space. It is a book which looks at what we repress as nations, families and individuals, and the traces that remain.

 Jane McCarthy's "Overtime"

A remarkable play. There is a seamless craftsmanship in Jane McCarthy's use of every-day speech, a breath-taking courage
in her grabbing the bull of allegory by the horns, and a masterful organization of some deceptively inconspicuous material.

SCREENING of C.T. DREYER'S silent masterpiece VAMPYR (1924)
with A NEW SCORE by STEVEN SEVERIN (from Siouxie and the Banshees)
>>Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray, sunday 20 May 2012
 
 
A visual meditation on death, lesbian desire, and the power of cinema to make miracles and ghosts

 

 
 
 
You will remember that in 2010, for our "Silent LGBTQ" film season, the Film Qlub revisited  the rarely screened classic gay film "Michael" (1924), directed by Danish master Carl Theodor Dreyer. Dreyer's experimental silent film "Vampyr" (1932) is also one of our favourite films. It has a lesbian scene (loosely inspired by the classic lesbian vampire novel "Carmilla", published by Irish writer Sheridan le Fanu in 1872), and, arguably, a gay male subtext. It is an absolutely beautiful film, very brave, and very original. Steven Severin, of classic punk group "Siouxie and the Banshees", has written a new score for Dreyer's "Vampyr"! There is an opportunity to hear it at the special screening of the film in the Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray, on 20th May 2012. If you are interested in silent films, if you are interested in experimental films, if you are interested in LGBTQ films, or if you simply love GOOD films, this is one for the calendar.
 
 
...............................................................................................................................
 
And... two more!

The IFI is doing a retrospective of Carl Theodor Dreyer, one of our favourite directors. At our silent gay season, we offered a very rare screening of his gay film Michael (1924). For those of you who missed it at the Qlub, or want to watch it again, check out:
http://www.ifi.ie/film/michael-2/
 
... We are even more excited about another Dreyer film in the IFI retrospective, The Passion of Joan of Arc (1922), with an absolutely stunning performance by Renée Jeanne Falconetti (pictured above), and filmed with an intensity befitting the subject.

 

 
Information on this screening, which features live music accompaniment, can be found here:
http://www.ifi.ie/film/the-passion-of-joan-of-arc/
We saw the film with live music a good few years ago in the IFI, and it was an unforgettable experience.
 
While "The Passion of Joan of Arc" is not strictly-speaking a gay film, it pays homage to a historical woman who broke with convention in every possible way, by refusing to wear women's clothing, by leading an army, and by believing in... herself. Joan has become one of the most important lesbian and queer icons in history. Guess what? January 6th, 2012, was Joan's birthday -- her 600th birthday!!! What better way to celebrate it than to retrace her steps to glory by watching this amazing film!

Film Fatale celebrates summer with Audrey Hepburn in ‘Roman Holiday’

The Sugar Club will be transformed into a 1950s Little Italy for a screening of the perfect classic summer film, ‘Roman Holiday’, on Saturday the 6th of August. Join the young and radiant Audrey Hepburn as princess Ann who breaks free from her regal duties to spend the day frolicking in Rome with handsome reporter Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck). Eat gelato on the Spanish Steps; place your hand in the mouth of truth, hop on a Vespa and ride around this vibrant city at the height of its glamour in the fabulous fifties. All from the comfort of your seat as you watch this timeless classic while enjoying pizza, wine and other Italian delights. The screening will be followed by a Italian-themed after-party with live performances and Film Fatale’s resident DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers who will play music from the era with a summer twist. The audience is invited to help set the scene by dressing up in their vintage finest, paying homage to 1950s Italian style or mirroring the characters of Hepburn and Peck.

Dublin’s bi-monthly film event Film Fatale is all about classic movies and old-fashioned fun. Screening the crème de la crème of classic films in the sumptuous surroundings of the Sugar Club, this night of cinema nostalgia mirrors the style of the films being screened transporting the audience back to the golden age of cinema.

Film Fatale presents ‘Casablanca’
PRESS RELEASE
 
On Saturday the 4th of June, The Sugar Club will be transformed into Rick's Café Américain for a screening of one of the world’s all-time favourite films Casablanca. A screening of Casablanca will be followed by a Moroccan-themed 1940s after-party with “As Time Goes By’ on the piano and DJs, the Andrews Sisters’ Brothers, playing music from the era. The audience is invited to help set the scene by dressing in their vintage finest, playing homage to 1940s Hollywood or going all out with a military or Moroccan theme. Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) must find safe transport out of WWII Morocco for herself and her resistance leader husband Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid).

An ageless film that gets better with every viewing, there is no better way to watch Casablanca than with a cocktail in our own version of Rick’s Bar.

PRESS RELEASE
‘Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill!’ star to introduce Midnight Movies / Friday 13th May / The Sugar Club
Midnight Movies, a new series of midnight cult cinema screenings, is delighted to announce that the star of ‘Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill!’ Lori Williams will be introducing the film via Skype on Friday the 13th of May in the Sugar Club, Dublin.
 
The audience will have the chance to find out first hand exactly what it was like filming one of the biggest cult films ever with one of the world’s most notorious film directors, Russ Meyer. 
Midnight Movies will bridge the gap between conventional cinema and late-night fun, playing the best of grindhouse, blaxploitation, exploitation, horror, underground, and cult classics.
 
The opening night brings the must-see cult film ‘Faster, Pussycat! Kill Kill!’ back to the big screen. The first film in the history of cinema where a woman kills a man with her bare hands, ‘Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!’ has been described as "beyond a doubt, the best movie ever made” by cult film director John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Cry-Baby). The film is unflinchingly exploitative, and features gratuitous violence, sexuality, provocative gender roles, campy dialogues and three extremely outrageous, thrill seeking go-go dancers. Tura Satana, Haji, and Lori Williams star as Varla, Rosie and Billy who, while racing cars in the desert, meet a young couple. After taking care of the boyfriend, they kidnap the girlfriend and head on a spree of mayhem. The screening will be followed by a special cult film retro set by DJ Shrem (Andrews Sisters’ Brothers).
 
Midnight Movies launches with ‘Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!’ on Friday the 13th of May, midnight at the Sugar Club 8 Lower Leeson Street, Dublin 2. Tickets priced €9 / €7 students (strictly over 18). Doors open at 11pm. Film starts: Midnight followed by DJ till late.
