INDIGIQUEER SHORTS FROM TURTLE ISLAND & AOTEAROA

Coined in 2004 by Thirza Cuthand, the term Indigiqueer is a way for queer Indigenous folks to identify themselves and their queerness. This cinematic collection showcases how versatile two-spirit/Indigiqueer life is. Join us for a mix of narrative and experimental works that defies colonial expressions of queerness.

Filmmaker and curator Justin Ducharme will be visiting us from Vancouver to present this program and engage with audiences. Stay tuned for further announcements on other guest filmmakers!  Reelout would like to give a special thank you to the Vancouver Queer Film Festival and in particular, artistic director, Anoushka Ratnarajah for assisting in bringing this program to Kingston which is situated on unceded traditional territories of the Mohawk, Anishinabek, Huron-Wendat, Algonquin, Iroquois, Mississauga and also the Metis who settled on these lands.
