RMIT Pride Film Festival - Pride Week

RMIT University Library is proud to present the RMIT Pride Film Festival, a series of five short films. Free rainbow popcorn will be provided for early birds!

 The festival will consist of five short films:

  1. Infinito Enquanto Dure (Infinite While It Lasts):  After falling in love at a party, Danny and Seiji just want to be together. However, their differences might prove stronger than their feelings. Shot with crowdfunded money, ‘Infinite While It Lasts’ is the first fiction film about asexuality.
  2. Tell-By Date: Ryan has something personal to tell his young son, yet finds every excuse not to do it. Finally he sets a deadline - a tell-by date - but when he uncovers a truth about his own father, he’s forced to confront his past in order to move forward
  3. The Best Men: Moments before his best friend's wedding, Peter gets one last chance to rekindle mutual feelings long suppressed, but not abandoned. Sometimes the perfect reminder of first love's passion is but a simple kiss from the best man.
  4. Falling for Caroline: To win the girl of her dreams, a klutzy young woman must overcome a wardrobe malfunction and the bad lesbian habit of overprocessing.
  5. Congo Cabaret: Congo Cabaret is an adaptation of an episode from gay writer Claude McKay’s then-bestselling novel, Home to Harlem. Set in a small nightclub, this scene presents the little-known figure of a “wolf” (a masculine gay man) and features the performance of a Bessie Smith song, “Foolish Man Blues,” which refers in a joking manner to “a mannish acting woman and a skippin’ twistin’ woman-acting man.

Please note, this event is open to RMIT staff and students only.
