“Boston Springs A Fethival” season is in high gear as it trucks through to the end of April, and the oldest LGBTQ film festival in America begins today – it’s time for the 2017 edition of Wicked Queer – Boston LGBTQ Film Festival!
As always the festival is kicking off with a gala at Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art – this year, the film screenings begin with the East Coast premiere of Signature Move, fresh off its world premiere in Austin at SXSW a couple of weeks aback. Directed by Jennifer Reeder, the film is described by WQ’s official website as “a funny and honest take on the complications of contemporary dating and the joys of [Lucha] wrestling. Ok, that sounds like a scary and hella fun combination! Opening night festivities are co-sponsored by The LOCS Collective , South Asian Arts Council ,and Queer Muslims of Boston.
The film got terrific reviews at SXSW,so you don’t want to miss the Boston area premiere – it’s happening tonight at 8:PM – Tickets are $30 and includes the after=party at EMPIRE – you can pick up your tickets HERE – you do get a (slight) discount if you’re a student or a member of ICA!
Don’t forget, Wicked Queer will be just a part of our massive Boston Springs A Festival Double-Feature weekend shows over at Subject:CINEMA the weekend of May 20-21; a complete rundown of the festival and the films therein.
