NewFest’s Queering the Canon is on now!

Queering the Canon series features screenings + conversations, at BAM and streaming throughout the US! 

Lovers of cinema can now rock the foundations of society with this electrifying, decades-spanning film series that entertains as it spits in the face of authority.

NewFest and BAM turn their eyes to the totally radical. But what does that mean in today’s media and cultural landscapes that have substantially changed since the days of auteurs Gregg Araki and Lizzie Borden? 

This is a genre-bending look at radical cinema’s past, present, and future, starting with 1969’s Funeral Parade of Roses through to By Hook Or By Crook (2001).

Playfully rebellious, full of fury, and queer AF–this retrospective collection of rollicking adventures and cult curios includes dynamic dystopias, outcasts reclaiming their space, a revolutionary women collective, and even an imaginative alt-musical about AIDS.

Featuring in-person Q&As with legendary filmmakers Gregg Araki, Silas Howard, and more, the sensationally subversive “Queering the Canon: Totally Radical” is gonna be all the rage.

Lineup of in-person + virtual screenings + Q&As, from April 6 – 10, 2023, get tickets here.
