Pride month maybe drawing to a close, but here at the Wire we’re always on the hunt for the best creative, queer and independent events as well as alternative perspectives in our beloved city – and this just so happens to combine all three. CineQ is a collaboration between SHOUT Festival, Birmingham LGBT and Flatpack Film Festival’s film programmers. Their mission statement? To satisfy hunger in the West Midlands for queer film and foreign/British film detailing a variety of queer experiences. Their first film night, takes place at an art space we fondly know and love for its awesome leftfield arts and events, Centrala and is welcome to anyone seeking to enjoy the spoils of queer film. Kicking of with Closet Monster, winner of ‘Best Canadian Feature Film’ at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival, it is preluded by the UK premiere of LGBTQAlphabet, a short film directed by Jordan Bahat that explains the many variations of the LGBT+ community to anyone not familiar with it. Tickets are a steal at just £3 and we feel you’ll be in fine filmic company.
