Get your popcorn, people. Queer film collective CINEMQ is having a film screening night this Thursday at Elevator
. Founded in 2014, CINEMQ is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit group that focuses on East Asian screen culture and perspectives on global queer cinema.
The theme of the evening revolves around the concept of queer communication and the barriers that sometimes come along with it. The selection of English- and Chinese-subtitled short films will explore how queer individuals engage in communication across languages, cultures, experiences and generations.
Somewhat surprisingly, a few of the short films will focus on deaf and hearing-impaired queer issues, and as such, a Chinese sign language interpreter will be present at the onset of the event.
Stick around after the films for a bumping afterparty featuring DJ OFFSKII.
