QDoc – The Portland Queer Documentary Film Festival announces eleven provocative, illuminating and entertaining programs as part of its 10th anniversary lineup. The four-day festival kicks off on May 19 at the Hollywood Theatre and continues through May 22 with ten additional programs that broadly explore LGBT history, culture and politics. Film descriptions can be found here.
This year brings another stellar lineup of the best in LGBT documentaries. We meet Fidel Castro’s niece who is leading a movement for LGBT rights in Cuba, and we are reintroduced to the spectacular dancers from Madonna’s Blond Ambition tour, 25 years later. We learn about a custom tailoring shop in Brooklyn catering to gender-nonconforming clientele, and about the 30-year history of Women’s Week in Provincetown. Hear stories about the lives of queer Palestinians living in Tel Aviv and young voguing queers of color in New York, see a special
sneak preview…and more! We’re delighted to have a large contingent of visiting filmmakers and film subjects attending their screenings.
We look forward to spending four days with you, and with our inspiring filmmakers and other guests. QDoc is proud to once again bring together the smartest, most interesting and gorgeous LGBTQ Portlanders (and friends) for this only-in-Portland event.
