DURBAN PINK CINEMA FRIDAYS
Wed, 5 September 2012
From Friday 14 September, the Durban Gay & Lesbian Film Festival will be running a series of fun, interesting and social screening nights at the KZN Society of Arts Gallery in Glenwood as a fundraiser.
There is no entrance fee, however, donations that will go towards sustaining the festival will be asked for at the door.
The DGLFF started in 2011 and the second festival was held in May 2012. As part of the festival’s community outreach and fundraising efforts, every fortnight a special bouquet of cinematic delight will be screened on the lawn at the gallery (inside the atrium on rainy days), during Spring and early Summer.
From well-known LGBTI titles to films that are just pure joyous fun for all ages, the DGLFF will provide a safe environment for cinema lovers, members of the gay and lesbian community and folk who enjoy the frivolity and social atmosphere of pink events.
Pink Cinema Fridays hope to add to the diverse tapestry that is Durban’s cultural scene, being close to great restaurants and open to all. Some short documentaries and short films will be matched with features to make for an evening of silver screen sophistication whilst patrons watch on their blankets under the stars.
You're welcome to bring picnic dinners whilst the festival bar will provide reasonably priced libations – please note that liquor may not be brought from outside onto the premises during Pink Cinema Fridays and as such, no persons under the age of 18 may enter the bar area during these events.
Light catering will be provided for and patrons may also order in their food. Ample secure parking around the venue is available.
Screenings will start at 7:30pm and run for an average two hours. The venue and festival bar will remain open thereafter for a time.
Pink Cinema Fridays will provide a welcome opening for the weekend for some, whilst others may find the relaxed al-fresco atmosphere a delightful alternative to staying at home watching TV!
The first screening bouquet on Friday 14 September will include:
• You Can’t Curry Love (Best Short of DGLFF 2012) – 23min
• All The Queen’s Men (Feature Film) – 123min
