QCC Inc. presents one festival annually–a combination of Queer City Cinema Film Festival and Performatorium: Festival of Queer Performance

Queer City Cinema 14 and Performatorium 6: September 19–23, 2017

ABOUT PERFORMATORIUM: Festival of Queer Performance
Performatorium festival of live performance by international, national and local performance artists. Performatorium continues the exploration of performance as another means from which to gather insight and appreciation of queer art and queer artists. Performatorium, for now, utilizes a theme or focus which helps to create a shared space of exploration and underlines connections and considerations created by the curatorial premise or theme. Performatorium 2017 will turn to popular culture for its inspiration. Artists who utilize and critique aspects of social and unsocial media, conventional media, celebrity, fame, aspiration, popularity and entertainment will be presented.

Performatorium: Festival of Queer Performance: February 1, 2017

Queer City Cinema Film Festival is comprised of international, national and local film. Film programming seeks to include screenings with Aboriginal/First Nations, Trans* and queer youth content. Dramatic shorts, docs, animation and experimental works are screened that continue a legacy of breaking down barriers–representing daring and unchartered visual territory, humorous and subversive characters, otherworldly and fantastical places and images, pleasurable provocations, and challenging and insightful perspectives on identity in a world all to ready to oppose and oppress.

Public Engagement Activities for both festivals include: artist presentations at the University of Regina; radio shows; workshops; and Perforum: round table discussion.

Works in Queer City Cinema Film Festival and Performatorium: Festival of Queer Performance act as a means to express and playfully analyze subjects that include–but are not limited to– gender, the body, sexuality, identity and the creative process itself.

Queer City Cinema Film Festival: April 1, 2017
