Reel Queer Film Series: Dykes, Camera, Action!

[Image description: A rectangular graphic with a white background. The Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center logo is in the upper left corner. Below are two speech bubble icons. The left one is black with rainbow details fashioned to look like a film reel. The right one has a black border with black and purple that reads "Reel Queer Film Series." A film cover is to the right, which features the title "Dykes, Camera, Action!" inside a TV screen with color bars. Above the film cover is a film strip featuring black-and-white photos of women with film equipment. Underneath the speech bubble icons are rainbow film strips of various lengths and event details. Black text reads "2nd Thursdays at 6:00 p.m.," "December 9: Dykes, Camera, Action," "Guest speaker: Mary Foltz, Scholar-in-Residence, Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center," "Q&A," and "Film runtime: 1 hr."]

The Reel Queer Film Series at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents free screenings of LGBTQ-themed independent, arthouse, and documentary films! Talkbacks follow each screening. All of the films we screen are not rated higher than PG-13.

The film screenings are held in person on the 2nd Thursday of every month at 6 p.m.

Join us for "Dykes, Camera, Action!," featuring a talkback with Mary Foltz, Ph.D., scholar-in-residence at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center.

Lesbians didn't always get to see themselves on screen. But between Stonewall, the feminist movement, and the experimental cinema of the 1970s, they built visibility, and transformed the social imagination about queerness. Filmmakers Barbara Hammer, Su Friedrich, Rose Troche, Cheryl Dunye, Yoruba Richen, Desiree Akhavan, Vicky Du, film critic B. Ruby Rich, Jenni Olson, and others share moving and often hilarious stories from their lives and discuss how they've expressed queer identity through film.

The Reel Queer Film Series is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency, through the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA), its regional arts funding Partnership. State government funding comes through an annual appropriation by Pennsylvania’s General Assembly and from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. PPA is administered in this region by PPA Partner Lehigh Valley Community Foundation.
