- The Wise Kids
A cool theatre has long been the solution to a sticky summer day, and this June 14-17 at the Neptune Studio Theatre, you can indulge in the first annual OUTeast Queer Film Festival, to learn, laugh, cry, then heat things up again with the post-film parties.
The festival came together through the dedication of organizers Andria Wilson, Krista Davis, Jenna Dufton, Kellie Manning, Lia Rinaldo and Adam C. Reid, who fueled themselves with pink popcorn for the past year while programming the thoughtful selections.
Featuring screenings of Stephen Cone’s The Wise Kids, a doc night, a local shorts night, Travis Mathews’ I Want Your Love, Aurora Guerrero’s Mosquita Y Mari, a matinee presentation of rough cuts from Morgan Strug’s upcoming documentary film project about the Halifax drag community and tons more, OUTeast has kicked off what promises to be a valuable (and insanely fun) addition to the Halifax festival scene.
