Homo Humour film screening plus Q and A

Admission Free
Start Time 18:00
End Time 20:00

Join Open Eye Gallery for the screening of a selection of short films, followed by a Q&A with Lee Campbell and Greg Thorpe.

Homo Humour explores the history of comedy as a queer identity defence, a means of expression and storytelling and the subversive and surprising ways that humour can be used on screen.

Homo Humour responds to the growing interest in LGBTQ+ folk using film and moving image to tell their stories by focusing purely on humour. Whilst the concept of humour helping LGBTQ+ people is an interesting (and vital) world to explore, this event seeks to also engage wider groups of artists, academics and students interested in film and/or the study of humour.

They also invite health/inclusion/wellbeing practitioners who are interested in how comedic storytelling may encourage people’s understanding of LGBTQ+ communities.

After the screening, Lee will be joined by Greg Thorpe to discuss aspects of the films and the ideas behind his curatorial project followed by Q & A from the audience.
