Queer Zine Film History! June 17 & 18 at Frameline41

We're happy to announce SFZF will be co-presenting the films QUEERCORE: HOW TO PUNK A REVOLUTION on June 17 and HOMEGROWN on June 18 at Frameline, the world's largest and longest-running LGBTQ film festival.

That means we'll be on the stage to introduce the films and talk about SFZF17. That's this Saturday and Sunday! Come celebrate radical queer history with us!

QUEERCORE: HOW TO PUNK A REVOLUTION Where: Victoria Theater When: Saturday, June 17 @ 9:30 pm What happens when the community you need is not the community you have? Tell yourself it exists over and over, make fan zines that fabricate hordes of queer punk revolutionaries, create subversive movies, and distribute those movies widely—and slowly, the community you’ve fabricated might become a real and radical heartbeat that spreads internationally. This is the story that Queercore tells, from the start of a pseudo-movement in the mid-1980s, intended to punk the punk scene, to the widespread rise of artists who used radical queer identity to push back equally against gay assimilation and homophobic punk culture. Read more...

HOMEGROWN Where: Victoria Theater When: Sunday, June 18 @ 9:00 pm When: Thursday, June 22 @ 9:15 pm Nine fabulously queer shorts with homegrown roots in the San Francisco Bay!  The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence invite you to a special gathering in A Rite of Passage. The music video for L|M|T’s Born to Love You explores conflict and connection through modern dance, proving that when opposites attract, the results can be explosive. Play Guitar Hero in a vintage, queer, and sexy way in Guitar Idol. In Cruising Elsewhere, oral histories and spectral pornography resurrect memories of a once legendary Russian River gay beach. In David, in Brief, a filmmaker comes across the Renaissance’s most iconic family jewels silkscreened onto a pair of boxer briefs and puts them to good use. Read more...
