QueerFest is back for its second outing at Depot this February. This year’s films focus on the diverse stories of past and present Queer characters. We will meet British Pakistani entrepreneur Omar in 1980s London in My Beautiful Laundrette; Mari and her girlfriends take us on a surreal journey through present day Brazil in Medusa; explore the lives inspired by Virginia Woolf’s gender fluid character in Orlando, My Political Biography; spend real time with Julie in the 1970s, in Chantal Akerman’s experimental feature debut, Je Tu Il Elle; and follow Feña over 24 hrs in contemporary NY through emotional encounters from their past in Mutt. The season culminates with a visceral game of revenge between Jules and Preston in dark British romance Femme. Finally, to celebrate these stories and all those in the Queer community, join us for our annual QueerFest party on 1 March.

QueerFest Cocktail Night

1 March

It wouldn’t be QueerFest if it didn’t end with a party! After our hugely popular cocktail night in 2023, we’re once again inviting you to join us in Robert’s Bar on Friday 1 March for another night of dancing and exicting drinks specials. Music will be provided by DJ Rebel Girl, who will be playing queer anthems from the 80s right up to the present day!

Cocktail menu coming soon…
