On Saturday the 28th of February my film “Translucent” was screened at the Queer as Film event in London. This was the first time the film had been shown outside of my University plus I did a Q&A afterwards. There were 7 short films shown in total all with a theme of LGBT. There was a range of funny and sad films, some silly and others far more dark and serious. Queer as Film was founded in 2009 by Robert Gershinson and Craig Ford and was hosted by comedian Tom Allen.
The event was really great, laid back and had a friendly, supportive atmosphere which made me slightly less nervous to do the Q&A after the screening! The other films shown were good, a particular favourite being “A Little bit Country” by Amy Coop which compared coming out as a country music fan to coming out as gay which was very funny and poignant.
For my film “Translucent” I got a really good response, and I’m very happy with how it went. I’m grateful to the people at Queer as Film for selecting it! Below is my Q&A.
