Join Doc Society’s Queer Now Lab to hear from leaders in the genderqueer film space about their thoughts on LGBTQ+ storytelling: where we’ve been, where we’re going, and where we need to be. What do filmmakers want from the field? What kinds of stories are useful to the queer rights movement? We’ll dig in deep for a candid conversation.

Monday 20 March
Kunsthal Charlottenborg – Mezzaninen
Moderated by Tabitha Jackson. 
QUEERING THE INDUSTRY is part of Doc Society’s Queer Now project, a 3-day lab to foster queer filmmakers, nurture their stories, and build community momentum to support impact campaigns and create societal change. Queer Now brings together voices in filmmaking, community organising, advocacy, research and more from around the world to reassess this moment of progress and backlash and discuss how we can create narrative shifts to fight for gender queer rights to move forward together. Organised by Doc Society, a non-profit founded in 2005 committed to enabling great documentary films and connecting them to audiences globally. 
Open to all!(Within capacity limit, max. 30 people)
