QUEERFEST
To celebrate LGBT History Month, FACT is presenting a jam-packed month of queer-related films and events spanning indie, art-house to cult cinema.

Paris is Burning
The award-winning Paris is Burning has been igniting audiences and critics across all over the world with record-breaking box office performances for years. An unblinking behind-the-scenes story of fashion-obsessed New Yorkers who created “voguing” and drag balls, and turned these raucous celebrations into a powerful expression of fierce personal pride. Accompanied by a special introduction and performance from dancer, Darren Suarez.
