The theme of this year’s festival is EXPOSE – to lay open to danger, attack, harm; to expose oneself to the influence of bad companions; to uncover or bare to the air, cold; to present to view, exhibit, display; to make known, disclose, reveal, unmask; to hold up to public reprehension or ridicule…In the spirit of adventure, non-conformity and unconventionality, EXPOSE is a double bill featuring Queer City Cinema Film Festival (20 years this year!) and the 5th Performatorium: Festival of Queer Performance. Turning the corner together, the two festivals begin a third decade of presenting queer visions to audiences in Regina and beyond.
