We have reported earlier about Mike Skiff’s latest documentary Folsom Forever and its World Premiere in London last February. The acclaimed documentary will now also get a screening in The Netherlands as part of Rotterdam’s FilmZeit programme.
FilmZeit is a monthly sex-positive cinema night with screenings in Kriterion and Worm, which are both located in Rotterdam.
We aim to provide an opportunity to watch interesting movies and documentaries with like-minded people, and discuss it afterwards over a drink at the bar. These nights are meant to be fun and low-key.
In 1984, a scrappy little neighborhood in San Francisco – home to many low-income tenants and the heart of the gay male leather scene – faced destruction from the bulldozers of redevelopment and the AIDS crisis. The Folsom Street Fair was started to call attention to gentrification and raise money for AIDS charities. FOLSOM FOREVER tells the story of how this small street fair grew into the biggest outdoor kink and fetish event in the world, and managed to do a lot of good along the way.
This evening’s guestspeaker is Pieter Claeys, Mr. Leather Europe 2009. He is one of the driving forces behind the annual Mr. Leather Amsterdam contest in the Netherlands, as well as the Amsterdam Leather Pride and Amsterdam Fetish Pride. He will tell us something about the origin and course of fetish prides in the Netherlands, such as the Leather Pride which has been around since 1996. Afterwards the audience has the opportunity to ask questions.
Location: Kriterion Rotterdam, Zomerhofstraat 76-90, 3032CM Rotterdam (entrance around the corner in the Schoterboshof).
