Book Launch

The Iris Prize Festival, Cardiff's International Gay and Lesbian Short Film Prize 2008, takes place this week (2nd – 4th October).

As part of the proceedings, Friday 3rd October at 17.30 sees the long-awaited launch of our new title Queer Cinema in Europe. The launch takes place at the Atrium, Cardiff School of Creative & Cultural Industries, Adam Street, Cardiff, CF24 2XF (click here for directions).

During the course of the launch, Robin Griffiths will discuss his new edited book, Queer Cinema in Europe with Ceri Sherlock, Commissioning Executive, Arts BBC Wales in a one hour Q & A session. Copies of the book will be available to buy from Intellect's stand at the event - there will also be information about Intellect and promotional material at the stand - so come and say hello!

The new book, edited by Griffiths, draws together a number of accessible and insightful essays that explore, for the first time, an exciting new area of academic analysis and debate. Through case studies of key films and film-makers, the contributors to this volume resituate discussions of queer representation and desire within a diverse and divergent European context. The book raises many provocative questions about understandings of gender, sexuality and identity in film that spill across a variety of national borders, cultures and traditions.
