Opening Night of the 2nd Out On Screen LGBTQ Film Fest, sponsored by the UWSP Faculty-Staff Gay-Straight Alliance, is just around the corner.
This year’s festival showcases nine award-winning independent films that explore the diversity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) community here and abroad.
Check out the 2013 Fest Program and Trailers to preview our exciting lineup of films. All screenings are free of charge and open to the public.
To all who attended Out on Screen — students, faculty, staff, and community members — a heartfelt thank you! We hope you found our festival of recent award-winning LGBTQ films as thought-provoking, informative, inspirational, occasionally infuriating, and entertaining as we did when we selected them for our series.
The final offering in this spring’s Out on Screen film series is Hit SoHard: The Life and Near-Death Story of Patti Schemel. This pull-no-punches documentary traces Schemel’s biography from her coming out and emergence on the Northwest music scene through her years as the drummer for Courtney Love’s seminal rock band “Hole.”
The film unflinchingly chronicles not only Schemel’s musical career, but her drug addiction, homelessness, and subsequent recovery. It’s a compelling story made all the more immediate thanks to director P. David Ebersole’s effective interweaving of contemporary footage and material with Schemel’s own Hi8 recordings of those tempestuous and heady years.
Winner of the 2011 Outfest Grand Jury Awards for both US Dramatic Feature Film and Outstanding Screenwriting, The Wise Kids is a character-driven coming-of-age story set in a Baptist church community in Charleston, South Carolina. Graduating seniors Tim, Brea, and Laura find themselves in that transitional space where life seems to be nothing but questions without answers and the future is scarily wide open.
