Dear colleagues:


Please find below a message from the makers of “ACTING OUT - 25 Years of Queer Film and Community in Hamburg”, a documentary about the Lesbisch Schwule Filmtage Hamburg | International Queer Film Festival.  The film is now available on DVD and can be ordered for screening or teaching.  


In the classroom it could work well with Ger Zielinski’s chapter on “On Studying Film Festival Ephemera: The Case of Queer Film Festivals and Archives of Feelings” from the new textbook Film Festivals: History, Theory, Method, Practice (ed. by Marijke de Valck, Brendan Kredell and Skadi Loist) which just came out from Routledge.  


Best wishes

For those of you interested in Queer Cinema there is good news:


the documentary "ACTING OUT - 25 Years of Queer Film and Community in Hamburg" is now available on DVD.


You'll find a detailed synopsis in the attachment, but let me tell you a few more things about our film. 


ACTING OUT is not solely a film about the history of the Hamburg International Queer Film Festival. It's also a narrative about the importance of Queer Cinema for queer communities - all over the world. Especially in countries that still deal with law enforced homophobia.


The Hamburg microcosm becomes a macrocosm in the sense that it lays out ways queer film has and will shape the emergence of queer subculture and resistance towards societies that foster homophobia, racism and sexism.


While watching you'll encounter a few well known faces of Queer Cinema, i. e. Monika Treut (who was our mentor in making this documentary possible), Texas Starr (who is well known from Monika Treut's groundbreaking documentary "Gendernauts" and a filmmaker himself by now), Wieland Speck (the curator of the Berlinale Panorama section) and lawyer Alice Nkom (who received the 7th Amnesty International Human Rights Prize for her commitment to LGBTI people in Kamerun). This, however, is just a quick glimpse at what to expect.


Our film premiered at the 25th anniversary of the Hamburg International Queer Film Festival festival in October 2014. It screened at various queer film festivals in Europe and was shown at the opening of the Queer Film Festivals as Cultural Activism symposium in Manchester this year.


Just have a quick look at our trailer:
