Fiji, and likely the Pacific’s first ever queer short film night; A Night OUT at the Movies will take place on Friday 6 December 2013 at Fiji School of Medicine’s (FSM) Pasifika Auditorium in Suva, Fiji.
The event is organized by the Drodrolagi Movement (droMo) with support from the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, at the Fiji National University.
droMo is a community-based organization in Suva, Fiji whose mission is to create and celebrate a culture of equality, respect, dignity and pride for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) community in Fiji.
Short films made by queer Auckland-based film makers and artists, Tanu Gago, Sangeeta Singh, Leilani Kake and Luisa Tora will be screened at the Pasifika Auditorium from 6-9pm.
“Short films are a wonderful tool to tell our stories and a collection of them will be a great way to document, validate, and celebrate who we are as queer Pacific people, “said contributor and film maker Luisa Tora.
“droMo is really excited to host this event. We hope to do this more in the future - and possibly even make our own queer short films in Fiji,” said Kris Prasad, representative of the Drodrolagi Movement.
“The screenings will be followed by a short Q&A with the film makers and we encourage the public to attend this free event.” Kris Prasad added.
