It’s Pride Month! While it’s too soon for us to be celebrating the traditional way, ReelOut along with our funders and sponsors, wanted to get those rainbow spirits aloft until the planned celebrations in September here in Kingston, Ontario Canada. We’re showcasing TWO unique programs over on our Virtual Festival Site. All programs go LIVE at 1pm EST Friday, June 4, 2021 and tickets will be available until August 31st.
ReelOut is PROUD to finally herald this experimental work, a hybrid of theatre and film, and our first original film co-production featuring all local talent in front of and behind the scenes. Influenced by the cult classic Mulholland Drive, YIKES! A Theatre Company explores a search for the self, strapped with the realization of identity within our immediate surroundings. There have always been the questions: Who am I? Who do I want to be? But we prompt: who do you think you are? How does your community serve you? What do you have to offer? Unlike what we are used to with story-telling, the piece is non-diegetic, further confronting the question of an imposed identification. There is no narrative arc, no answers, there is only The Intangible Queer. TICKETS are $13 and available HERE.
This collection originally curated for Reelout’s 20th anniversary in 2019, celebrates the stories and histories of our local LGBTQ+ communities. Three documentaries and one narrative based on a true story, ranging from 1995 to 2018, tell the stories of humans looking for a place to live and love right here in Kingston. Filmmakers included in this program are James Fowler, Sandra Jass, Isaac Alfie, Jonathan Davies, and Josh Clapp. TICKETS are $13 and available HERE.
