THIS MONTH: Queer film screenings as part of POUTFEST 2015: Collaboration between Sexuality Summer School, HOME and Manchester Pride.

Presented in association with HOME, the Sexuality Summer School and Manchester Pride, Peccadillo Pictures’ POUTfest showcases a selection of LGBTQ films and accompanying events.

POUTFest 2015 brings you five brand new LGBTQ feature films. The theme of the 2015 POUT tour is “family” where all five features celebrate many different forms of family life in the 21st Century.

The features are: 52 TUESDAYS, SOFT LAD, DRESSED AS A GIRL and A GIRL AT MY DOOR and WEEKEND.

We at the Sexuality Summer School are teaming up with HOME to offer Q&As and introductions to each of these events.

First up is 52 Tuesdays on Tuesday 4th August at 18:10 followed by a Q&A with director Sophie Hyde and chaired by Clara Bradbury-Rance. Filmed one day, every week, for a year, 52 Tuesdays explores teenager Billie’s journey when her mother reveals plans to gender transition. Exposing both characters’ transformations, 52 Tuesdays is a ground-breaking and remarkable achievement in storytelling. Whatever happens to her mother, Billie will always be his daughter.
