Sofia Queer Forum 2016 takes place in 2017! And it’s only one night only! SQF will be hosted generously by our friends from Aether – Sofia’s cutting edge space for contemporary visual arts and all sorts of art troubles.

For this event we will gather American and Russian authors telling stories of sexual and gender dissidence. No better way to do this than a week after TrumPutin’s inauguration!

The programme consists of a performance and video works, in two installments.

In the first video installment we will show two Russian movies, one documentary by Kseniia Khrabrykh and one experimental by Shifra Kazhdan. Then we continue with a performance-reading by Voin de Voin and Stanimir Panayotov queering people’s political poetry devoted to politicians. After a short break we will go West and show 7 shorts by American underground trash icon Carey Burtt.

The selection of Burtt's movies is made and arranged by our friends: Biljana Dimitrova from FRIK Festival, Skopje.
