The PRIDE Film Festival proudly announces its 10th annual Film Festival Thursday, January 31st through February 3rd, 2013. Featuring appearances by Christine Vachon, flashmob and a mass LGBTQ wedding will make 2013’s PRIDE Film Festival the most memorable film festival Bloomington has seen. The theme, “Your Story, Our History” focuses on LGBTQ history, the present and the future. As LGBTQ rights are turning into the pivotal civil rights issue of our time, the festival reflects on pivotal moments in LGBTQ history and looks at the future through film, discussion and community events. Special Excitement – “Historical Re-Enactment Flashmobs” Throughout the Festival, spontaneous re-enactments of moments from queer history – the Matachine Society’s picket, a Queer Nation Kiss In, an ACT UP die in, etc. You won’t know where, you won’t know when, but suddenly you’ll be in the midst of one of the pivotal moments that make up our story. Special Prizes – Sunday, Feb 3rd 3pm Each flash mob will also include a CLUE – collect all the CLUES and enter to win a special prize. Drawing will take place at the queer history panel discussion on Sunday, Feb 3. You must be present to win. Extra Special Excitement – Make History – LGBTQ Flashmob Wedding – Thursday, Jan 31rd Get married during PRIDE! Make a statement, make a commitment. As the Indiana State Legislature considers an amendment to the constitution to ban marriage equality, PRIDE Film Festival offers an opportunity to renew your vows, pop the question for the first time, or simply stand up in this history-making moment. A high level official has agreed to perform the ceremony – you won’t want to miss this! PRIDE Opening Night Party – A Wedding Reception To Be Remembered – Thursday, Jan 31st Plan to take Friday off – Thursday’s screening will be followed by a blow out opening night party to celebrate our MASS WEDDING.
