OCT 2 AT 12 AM – OCT 4 AT 10 PM
Queer Afro-Latinx Film Screening.
Hosted by SF LGBT Center and QWOCMAP – Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project.
In order to give you the best enjoyment with these films virtually, we decided to give you access the whole weekend so you can fully appreciate these works of art by folks in our community. Here are a few suggestions of how to utilize these films over the weekend.
1. Watch these 8 short stories all at once, which will take you about an hour, or one at a time at your discretion.
2. Choose to watch these stories on your own time through out the weekend and you can re-watch your favorite ones more than just one time.
3. Create a date night or multiple dates with your significant other/others throughout the weekend.
4. You can even add these films to your family night agenda.
We will also have a Q&A/Discussion Happy Hour Tuesday Oct. 6th on Zoom. Please stay tuned for the link for that event ASAP.
