ROMEOS & HOLD ON TIGHT

We are thrilled to present as our Opening Gala Film, Romeos’ not only a brilliant and hugely entertaining story, but also a film of great courage alongside Hold On Tight

Lukas has just turned 20 and he’s ready to get out and find some action. Launching himself into a new life in the big city he suddenly finds himself with a new circle of friends, among them the trashy and totally hot, Fabio, who exudes masculinity through every pore and embodies the kind of self-confidence that Lukas lacks.

The two begin to get closer, but Lukas has a huge secret that he has yet to share with Fabio – he was born a girl. Only his best girlfriend, Ine, knows what’s really going on and she’s starting to get tired of Lukas being such a lad.

Romeos touches a nerve in all of us. A sexy, crowd-pleasing drama that’s both comedic and serious at the same time, packed with fantastic characters and performances, it’s an incredibly well-made and inspiring film about how we’re all living double lives to one degree or another.

The winning entry, Hold on Tight from director Anna Rodgers and producer ZlataFilipovic will have its world premiere as part of our Opening Night Gala at The Screen Cinema on Thursday, July 28 at 8:30pm.

The film is a gorgeous, intimate documentary about displays of affection between same- sex couples. Holding hands or kissing in public isn’t for everyone. When it comes to same-sex relationships, showing your love outside of the home is sometimes a complicated personal choice. Yet, for most people, being affectionate beyond the hall door isn’t intended as a political statement – it’s an expression of love. Beautifully shot by award wining cinematographer Kate McCullough, the film transports us from a private world outside into the streets, bars, trains and parks in which Irish lesbian and gay couples live their daily lives.

German with English subtitles.

Join us before the screening at 6.30pm for a special cocktail reception at Lafayette on D’Olier Street (just around the corner from The Screen Cinema), and afterwards at the Festival Club upstairs at The Project Arts Centre.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
