2014 Lineup and Schedule!
Two of the films presented at the 2014 Appalachian Queer Film Festival will be the feature length film “Skeleton Twins,” starring Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig, on Friday Oct 24 at 6:30p. Also showing at the festival will be the documentary “To Be Takai”, starring Trekkie and LGBT advocate George Takei, screening Saturday Oct 25 at 6:30p. Both films premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and will have their West Virginia premieres at this year’s AQFF.
In addition to film screenings, the festival will also feature two panel presentations relevant to the LGBTQ communities in West Virginia. The panel, “A Parent’s Journey to Acceptance: Raising an LGBTQ Child in Appalachia,” explores the challenges, both social and familial, of raising an LGBTQ child in Appalachia. The second panel, “Queer Film and Activism,” explores the role film can play in advocating for social change, both personally and in policy. Both panels will feature community activists as well as leaders in the national fight for LGBTQ advocacy.
