After their most recent collaboration on the Translations Film Festival, Goethe Pop Up Seattle is thrilled to partner once more with Three Dollar Bill Cinema to help bring two German feature films to the 2021 Seattle Queer Film Festival. Films at this year’s festival are available both at in-person screenings and virtually.
*** The in-person screening takes place on October 15 at 6:30pm PT at Erickson Theatre in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood. For viewers who would rather watch at home, the film is available to stream from October 14 to 24. ***
Boy Meets Boy
Dir. Daniel Sánchez López; 2020; Germany; 70 min.
Harry has been partying for two days when he meets Johannes on the dance floor of a club in Berlin. With 15 hours left until Harry’s flight back to London, Johannes offers to help him print his boarding pass. This mundane task leads to a day together, wandering the city. The contrasts in their lives and values force them to confront their own truths and be completely honest.
This Grand Prize winner at the Rhode Island International Film Festival is about a brief encounter and a fleeting moment of happiness and possible love.
Having started as the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival in October 1996, the Seattle Queer Film Festival has grown into the largest event of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, gaining industry and audience recognition for showcasing the latest and greatest in queer film, from major motion picture premieres to emerging talent. An important venue in the Seattle film scene, the festival provides unique opportunities for visiting and local filmmakers to engage and entertain the Greater Seattle region’s LGBTQ and allied community.
