Lesbians* for Arts, Culture & Entertainment

Nuit Blanche

  • September 30 (9-10 p.m.)
  • Cinematheque 100 Arthur Street

Toronto-based group Drunk Feminist Films brings feminists together to dissect their problematic Hollywood favourites with a drink in hand (alcoholic or otherwise) to mock the gender stereotyping they see at work in Hollywood filmmaking. They host regular sold out public screenings as well as webisodes and other online content with outlets including CBC and VICE. As their mandate goes, “At Drunk Feminist Films, we would rather laugh than cry our way through Hollywood representations of gender, race, sexuality, class and other aspects of identity.” Drunk Feminist Films produces lighthearted events and media that use cocktail-fuelled feminist commentary to tease apart the tropes of mainstream movies. Seeing as how they are based in Toronto the group has prepared a special video introduction for the Winnipeg screening which compiles some of their funniest episodes and sharply satirical analyses. Featuring much laughter and clips from The Bodyguard, Crossroads, Save the Last Dance, Gone Girl, Love Actually, A League of their Own, Twilight and Burlesque!

Plays With:

Snapperdoodle / Directed by Arlea Ashcroft & Andrea Von Wichert, 2007, Canada, 4 min / A woman paints with her vagina to please the art hungry masses that crowd her gallery and her life.

Generously Sponsored by Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art and On Screen Manitoba. Coinciding with Culture Days, Nuit Blanche Winnipeg is an all night exploration and celebration of contemporary art. These events are free to the public and encourage and celebrate arts and culture in our community.
