About the event

Join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary, Reel In The Closet.

Often set against the backdrop of the headline moments of the last century, this documentary is queer history from the perspective of queer people. Rare and intimate, this collection of home videos will take you into the personal and human moments of everyday queer people throughout the last century.

Following the screening, there will be a discussion and Q&A with the filmmaker and a panel of Shropshire area LGBTQ  advocates.

This screening is co-presented by Safe Aging No Discrimination,  AgeUK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin, and the Rainbow Film Festival.

During the event we will be giving a 'sneak preview'  of our upcoming film, All The Lonely People. This film examines the growing epidemic of isolation and loneliness. Much of the film is shot across Shropshire and other parts of the West Midlands!

The Evening:

Introduction by Filmmaker & Producer, Joseph Applebaum.

Film screening (1 hr)

Discussion and Q&A w/ Filmmaker & Director,  Stu Maddux, and Peter Roscoe & Geoff Hardy of the Rainbow Film Festival

The event is free, but donations are encouraged. All proceeds help us continue our social-impact filmmaking and the completion of,  All The Lonely People. Because of COVID-19 we are currently placing cameras in the hands of our film participants  to safely capture their experience in isolation.
