Queerious is part of Film Feels Curious, a UK-wide cinema season, supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network, with additional support from the High Commission of Canada in the UK.
Birds’s Eye View is on a mission to reclaim the frame and bring a broader perspective of the world by championing cinema by women and non-binary filmmakers. In exciting news, Birds’ Eye View has presented the full Queerious program as well as revealing the commissioned artwork for the season by illustrator Javie Huxley.
Javie is a British-Chilean illustrator based in London, and co-chair for Save Latin Village. Javie strongly believes in the importance of art as advocacy, her work focuses on themes such as identity and current social issues. Javie loves to use her art to celebrate and platform marginalised voices in the UK.
Queerious invites viewers to get curious and explore a multitude of desires onscreen in ways rarely seen in the world of cinema. The programme contains stories of sexual awakenings, re-awakenings and queer love through a feminist lens. The full programme is available here.
