It’s that time of the year, folks. The heat is rising! The pavements are melting! …and amazing queer events just keep coming up!
Madras is back with the ever popular Reel Desires: Chennai International Queer Film Festival 2014. In collaboration with Goethe Institut/ Max Mueller Bhavan Chennai and other local LGBTQ allies/support groups – This is a year to showcase groundbreaking, hard hitting and always entertaining cinema to the old and nouveau cinema goers of Chennai in the wake of IPC 377 and the shenanigans of the ongoing elections.
I saw some great movies last year at the Reel Desires Film Festival, met some very interesting folks and came away more enriched about the queer scene in the South than ever before. I’ll be there again this year – hopefully lending more support and getting to see some of you there.
Before things get rolling – We have a Call For Submissions for the film festival. So if you think you have something that needs to be seen, showcased or witnessed – Give it a go. Give us a heads up too! We’d love to feature you on Gaysi as well.
