...Where Queer Dreams are Streamed...
The Palace International Film Festival programme is unveiled. Taking place at The Cube Microplex in Bristol on March 14, 15 and 16, our programme will give a unique platform to a diverse selection of queer cinema. We will showcase shorts and feature films from international underground artists, present a special screening with a live score, and throw a closing Palace Party with live acts and immersive installations.
The Palace Collective presents The Palace International Film Festival (PIFF). Like the Palace Collective itself, PIFF began life in an artist’s residency at a Polish Palace, where it gave a platform to queer art and ideas. PIFF will make its UK debut in Bristol this March with a 3-day gala showcase.
The festival will open with feature film Fluidø, a Berlin-produced sci-fi punk dystopian vision of the post AIDS-future of 2060. On Day 2, a mystery queer film will be screened (TBA) from a director with a large cult following, and an accompanying score performed live in the cinema by artists from The Palace Collective. The gala will close with Shakedown, a feature film that paints an intimate portrait of an underground lesbian club community in Los Angeles.
PIFF showcases three collections of shorts: Queer as F*ck, Community Activation and Palace.MIXX.
