After last year’s storming success, East London’s spunky alternative film festival isback!

Four days of over  30 films, events, art and parties Fringe! is excited to showcase this year’s ‘confetti burst’ of queer culture – with many events free!

Highlights include the first ever screening of Travis Mathew’s hotly tipped I Want Your Love– UK premieres of army cadet love story Private Romeo plus docs (A)sexual, Audre Lorde: The Berlin Years and Short & experimental film hosted by cult les mag Girls Like Us. Plus the Little Joe Clubhouse from the creators of Little Joe magazine which will host screenings, discussions and a library and act as a meeting point during the festival.

They’re revamping classics with specially enhanced screenings of classic films, including:

A dress up and dance in aisles screening of In Bed with Madonna hosted by East End drag legend Holestar and a  New Queer Cinema retrospective, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the movement that iconised queer outsiders featuring: High Art, Young Soul Rebels AND Swoon!

Queer erotica spreads eastwards– with hot curated film, performance and talks including Wakefield Poole’s classic Bijou, cult doc In their Room Berlin, the sexy, funny, weird and perverse Community Action Centre, a lesbian darkroom haunt, plus the Tate gallery’s Stuart Comer talks secret codes and shameless exhibitionism in Caught in the Act

Art goes large at Fringe! this year with Facing You A photo-exhibition exploring the notion of queer. The Cruising – an interactive iphone app charting east London’s gay geography, Artifacts and filmic memories in After Louie. Aerobics meets performance art in Dragercise,  and for night owls Tweet the Dawn a 4am interactive twitter performance event, 50 meters up.
