The OUTeast Film Festival is launching its first public screening series Queer Films in Public Spaces: The OUTeast peepIN Project. As one of the earliest precursors to cinema, the peep show has played a role in public storytelling and entertainment for nearly 600 years. From live shows to the traveling “wonderbox”, OUTeast re-envisions these models as a stage to present contemporary queer film.
The first presentation of the OUTeast peepIN will take place October 15 in the windows of the CBC Radio Building at Halifax’s visual art festival, Nocturne: Art at Night. OUTeast will present collaborative video work by Canadian artists Nolan Natasha Pike (Toronto), Kim Sheppard (Halifax), Krista Davis (Halifax) and Cari Tangedal (Dawson City).
