This screening presents several queer short films made by San Francisco State University Cinema alumni throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s. It’s a part of The Archive Project’s mission to explore the archives and highlight the larger cinematic history within our community. These films cover numerous genres, subjects and methods of filmmaking, aligned in their common goal of showing the diversity and limitlessness of what a queer cinema can contain. Q&A with filmmakers, facilitated by MA student Ryan McCandless and filmmaker Karly Stark, follows the screening. Co-presented by Queer Cinema Project and supported by the CSU EA.
