RI LGBTQ Film Series: Queer Archives Movie Night (in-person screening)

RI LGBTQ Film Series: Queer Archives Movie Night, an in-person screening in PPL’s Donald J. Farish Auditorium.

View archival film footage that is only recently available to the public. We’ll screen film footage from the RI LGBTQ+ Community Archives and audio-video recordings from the Rhode Island Historical Society holdings. Learn about the importance of film and audio archives to researchers and historians and how you can best preserve your own home movies.

Preserving historical evidence is important so that we can learn from the past and celebrate the communities and lives of those who came before us. Engaging with archival records of the LGBTQ+ experience can be emotional, especially since materials may contain a reflection of oppression and trauma. Our goal with this program is to celebrate the lives of LGBTQ+ people in Rhode Island and to honor their legacy with preservation.

Program is free and open to the public; registration is required.

Please note that masks are required in the Auditorium. Seating opens at 5:30 pm; event begins promptly at 6 pm.
