QE: HomeSexual Edition

In response to the Coronavirus outbreak and indefinite closure of independent venues, Queer East launches a new charitable initiative to celebrate inspiring queer activism and storytelling from East and Southeast Asia whilst also raising money for independent cinemas.

Queer East will move online with a special capsule series ‘QE: HomeSexual’ running from 18 April to 17 May. The series features five programmes, with 17 films from 9 countries, reflecting the headline festival’s selections to offer an authentic overview of contemporary queerness in East and Southeast Asia on screen. Each programme will be available to rent for £2.99 at https://queereast.co/vod with all proceeds going to independent cinemas partnering with Queer East this year.
