Our movie club takes the form of a series of narrative arcs that last ~4 months, with anywhere from six to twelve total films (a mix of shorts, documentaries, and fictional movies). We offer two themed series every year, each with its own private Discord channel that’s paired with curated readings, ongoing discussion prompts, and exclusive events.
Small-group discussions for the movie club happen every month. These are 1.5-2 hour moderated conversations with a maximum of 10 participants per session.
Join our Patreon community to receive complimentary tickets to upcoming sessions! Tiers start at just $5/month and go a long way in supporting this programming.
Contemporary Queer Migrations
February - June 2021
Our very first movie series encompasses 13 films from across the globe that explore the complex relationship between queerness and migration, queer diasporic families, and the power of queer cinema beyond LGBTQ+ representation.
These films reject both the invisibility and the anonymity of queer migrants. In the global and aesthetic diversity represented in these movies, we realize there is no huddled mass, no monolith — but dreamers of all colors fighting against multiple systems of oppression and imagining something more.
