Premiere Screening

Celebrate the premiere of SFDFF and Ballet22's Co-Laboratory film "Intimité Révélée," along with a screening of select queer films from the SFDFF archives.


Saturday’s program features the eagerly anticipated premiere of SFDFF’s Co-Laboratory film “Intimité Révélée,” a fresh collaboration between SFDFF, Ballet22 and a creative team led by Artistic Director Lorris Eichinger, Director Natasha Adorlee, and Co-Choreographers Hope Mohr and Olivia Evans. “Intimité Révélée” emerges as a tender statement that dares to explore and celebrate the nuances of queer love and intimacy. The program opens with a screening of select queer films from the SFDFF archives. With special guest MC Lonnie Weeks.

Following the premiere of “Intimité Révélée” there will be a live performance of choreography by Lorris Eichinger set on the dancers featured in the film: Sunny Winn, Luella Nandra, Charmaine Butcher, Alaja Badalich (courtesy of AXIS dance company), D Calhoun (courtesy of AXIS dance company) and Liam Fleming.
