The freezing cold and the snow did not deter protesters from participating in the third annual Women’s March on Saturday. 

 

The march in Montreal was one of the many marches that took place  around the world in solidarity with the thousands who marched towards the White House in Washington, D.C.

 

CBC reports, since its inception in 2017, the march has become an annual event where women come together to highlight issues of misogyny, transphobia and racism.

Image + Nation: Mapplethorpe

To kick off its ciné-création section, the LGBTQ film festival of Montreal presented the new biopic Mapplethorpe, shining a light on the photographer’s rise to fame last Friday December 1st, at L’impérial.  It also marked the first collaboration between the MAC and Image+Nation.

Although the movie’s intentions are very noble, it miserably fails to achieve anything, with the exception of a good performance by leading actor Matt Smith in the role of Robert Mapplethorpe. Odi Timoner’s first feature film has some interesting aspects, but mostly fails to live up to the public’s expectations.


Image+Nation: Postcards From London

25 years after Postcards from America, director Steve McLean brings queer cinema further with his new film tackling the relationship between male prostitution and art. Postcards from London was shown at L'Impérial Thursday November 30th for the LGBTQ film festival Image+Nation.

Montreal is welcoming the latest addition to it’s cinema family, Cinema Moderne: located in Mile End, and born just this year on September 17th 2018. When walking through its doors, there is an irrepressible feeling of a dream coming into reality. The cinema is comprised of a 50+ seat theatre with a bistro and bar, with promises of many cultural events to come. The cinema’s mission is inclusive and innovative, with an aim to incorporate series into their programming featuring directors from indigenous populations, women and local artists.

Image+Nation: Queerment Quebec

Un public enthousiaste a joint les équipes de production de huit courts métrages LGBTQ très variés, tous faits au Québec, le lundi 26 novembre 2018 au Centre Phi, dans le cadre du festival Image+Nation.


Image+Nation 2018: Sauvage

Le festival international de films LGBTQ de Montréal, Image+Nation, va encore plus loin pour sa 31e édition, du 22 novembre au 2 décembre 2018. On s’attend à une semaine surprenante et à des films de qualité. D’année en année, les cinéphiles montréalais avides d’une meilleure représentation LGBTQ se donnent rendez-vous au festival qui ne cesse de grandir. Pour constater moi-même l’engouement autour d’Image+Nation, j’ai décidé d’assister à quatre de leurs soirées.
