Wicked Queer Film Festival 2023

*please note these are NOT being shown at the SCC. Check links for details*

We are proud to, once again, participate in the Wicked Queer Film Festival for 2023. This year there are two full length features and a Swedish short in the Nordic selection.

Men’s Shorts: Connection, Connecting and Connected
April 6, 7:30 PM – MFA, Boston
The Dress Code (Sweden)
What happens when a lonely man advertises for company, demanding something very…particular?

Heartbeast (Finland)
April 6, 9:00 PM – Brattle Theatre
Elina, a 17-year old aspiring rapper, is forced to leave her home country of Finland and move to the South of France when her mother finds a French boyfriend. She is immediately drawn to her new stepsister Sofia, 18, a charismatic ballet dancer who leads a double life full of boys and drugs.

Daddy and the Muscle Academy (Finland)
April 9, 3:00 PM – MFA, Boston
Tom of Finland is one of the major icons of the gay world. His provocative erotic drawings have had an enormous influence on gay identity, attitude and self-understanding. This ground-breaking work combines interviews with Tom (prior to his death in 1992) and his leather men acolytes with hundreds of his original drawings and steamy fantasy scenes inspired by his work. We will be conducting a panel discussion post film moderated by Ulysses Thomas, Mr. New England Leather 2022 and joined by Michael Joseph, Hunter O’Hanian, and Cain Berlinger

Wicked Queer: Boston’s LGBTQ+ Film Festival (formerly the Boston LGBT Film Festival) was founded in 1984 by film programmer George Mansour. Wicked Queer is the 4th longest running LGBTQ+ Film Festival in North America and is an all volunteer organization. Our mission is to build community and to celebrate Queer storytelling and filmmaking through the uplifting of voices and stories not yet heard and to present and preserve the vibrancy of our histories.

Wicked Queer is a sponsored project of the Queer Film Institute.
