Golden Village Love & Pride Film Festival Opening in October

Golden Village’s (GV) celebrated Love & Pride Film Festival returns for the 11th year this October and will once again feature an impressive lineup of internationally acclaimed foreign titles.

Curated by the Singapore Film Society (SFS), the highly regarded festival, which takes place from 10th to 20th October 2019, will showcase a slew of LGBTQ-focused independent titles connected with the theme of ‘Sparking Change’. The theme seeks to spark productive conversations on issues faced by the LGBTQ community and encourage a societal change in attitudes.

The 11th edition of the Love & Pride Film Festival kicks off on 10 October with a screening of Tremors (Spanish) for the festival’s opening night. Directed by Guatemala’s Jayro Bustamante, following the resounding success of his debut film Ixcanul in 2015, the weighty film follows the story of the coming out of an evangelical father which leads to the discovery of a profoundly repressive society and examines the clash between gay rights and religion.

Other featured films at this year’s Love and Pride include Port Authority (English), A Dog Barking at the Moon (Chinese), Zen in the Ice Rift (Italian), Tracey (Cantonese), and Giant Little Ones (English), all of which have won major awards at international film festivals.

Tickets for the opening night are priced at $16 for GV Movie Club® members and $18 for the public, which includes an exclusive Love & Pride Film Festival gift bag. There is an option to enjoy a cocktail reception on opening night for an additional $20.

Tickets for all other screenings are priced at $13 for GV Movie Club® members and $15 for the public.
