When? 4pm TODAY GURL!
What? Ann Arbor Film Festival are streaming their films live for the next 5 days. Don’t miss this at 4pm: Glow Job. From the ‘60s to the ‘90s, several theaters and public spaces in Seoul and other cities, such as Pagoda Theater, Keukdong Theater, and Seongdong Theater, were appropriated as the crucial “cruising spot” by male sexual minorities. Now the main stage of cruising has moved from the physical spaces to the virtual fields. It seems there is no spatial validity for the cruising spot any longer.
SOMETHING TO HELP THE STATE-SANCTIONED LEZ U HAUL GO DOWN EASY?
WATCH: Did you love Wild Nights With Emily, our steamy-awkward-hilarious closing night film of 2018? Well Madeleine Olnek (Co-dependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same, Who’s Afraid of Vagina Woolf?) made another legendary film, the subversive hooker-comedy The Foxy Merkins back in 2013, and she’s put it online for free for all you self-isolated combabes. And late great lez film originator Barbara Hammer’s short film works are available online here! (Consider donating to the fund on the site if you can).
REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL?
Be grateful: before the lockdown we’d been missing out on Oozing Gloop’s new work. But this weekend the green goddess live-streams their new work from HAU in Berlin.
Link: Check their insta here. Deets a lil fuzzy but sure to be the riot we need.
REVISIT SOME CLASSICS WITH CUTE BOYS AND NATTER ABOUT IT
Gorgeous Séan McGovern and Brian Mullin (the minds behind Broad Appeal Pod -- another thing to spend some days on if you haven’t before!) have put together Viral Film Festival. Big films, gorgeous design, and no doubt the best chat. Play along at homo!
WORK ON YOUR CRAFT
For makers, there’s tons going on (if you’re so inclined): Adobe have knocked money off their subscription, Bertha Dochouse have a fab selection of masterclass videos for free, Arc Studio Pro is offering free screenwriting software, plus countless other suddenly affordable options. You“ll kick yourself if you don“t do it now...
And, to finish off, join us for a saucy evening this Saturday on Pornhub! The questionable host of porn-not-paid-for is now host to our favourite film of the decade. This fills us with feelings. But not as many as SHAKEDOWN itself does.
When? 5.30pm: film | 7pm: Pornhub host a live Q&A session with director Leilah Weinraub | After: insta @fringefilmfest
And then join us on Instagram Live for a chat about it all with Tobi from sex+rage, a vital platform to create social change that is SW-led who did a gorgeous load of events before this huge global shift (drop ‘em a follow!) Join us live for an honest convo about Shakedown, pornhub, and the changing shape of exhibition.
Catch us here next week for what else is happening on the ...scene including the best talks, freebies, clubnights, and drag brunches. (BYO panic-brunch-food)
