Friday, April 17th at 8:00 pm
Queerdos & friends of Chicago: Welcome to CIMMFest’s Queer Video Screening and Music Event. Through video art, short fictions and music videos, this program touches a wide array of topics: stretching notions of gender identity; kinship and sexuality; proper bodies and their organized functions while dealing with a bunch of other social and political struggles such as the fight against HIV/AIDS, sexism, confinement, racism, and mental illness. Digging at the intersections of queerness with humour, indecision or in-your-face queer fabulousness, this program holds together with music at its core—it’s CIMMfest after all! Following the screening and before Slo ‘Mo hits the dj booth with their best soundtracks, we get to have our minds blown by a couple of unapologetic music performers from Montreal, rapper Donzelle and electro musician Douce Angoisse - Rébecca Lavoie, Film Programmer & Curator of Cruising TRACKS

Short films & video art by: Blair Bogin, Rami George, Coral Short & Mascha Nehls (music by Lesbians on X), Robert Carnilius, Kristin Li, COVEN Berlin, Zachary Hutchinson, Justin Kelly, Latham Owen Zearfoss & Joel Midden, Mae Rafferty, Nico Marple & Rebecca Thilo, Jenny Cartwright, Spite Your Face (for Douce Angoisse), Dayna McLeod & Jackie Gallant

Music Videos of: Cakes da Killa, Galaxea Coral, GAYmous, Baathhaus, Donzelle, The Knife, Random Recipe, Kate Stelmanis (Austra), Ms. Holmes (Big Sissy), Paulo Transpire, Tiny Hearts


Chicago-based artist Darling Shear, founder of the collaborative artist group Suna Dance, freelance dancer & choreographer will be performing a live movement-response to one of the videos during the screening!


Donzelle rhymes sexual demands and emotions using bad metaphors and big dirty bass. She is supported by talented employees and impassive dancers. Together they attack the dance floor and juggle with clichés.


Via London, to Montreal. Provocative electronic music backed by hypnotic disco/darkwave melodies. Think of a warehouse Daft-Punk beating up a french Kate bush at the gates of hell.

SLO 'MO Party Does Soundtracks follows!
