QDoc: Portland’s Queer Documentary Film Festival is back and bigger than ever.
The 7th annual festival opens at McMenamins Bagdad Theater May 16 with the larger than life portrait of drag superstar Divine in I Am Divine presented with director Jeffrey Schwarz and actress Mink Stole in attendance. Following Opening Night, the Festival continues through May 19 at McMenamins Kennedy School with ten documentaries that feature gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual, transsexual and gender-questioning artists, lovers, activists and pioneers.
Festival Passes can be purchased for $75 and also provide admission to the reception. Following the opening screening, the audience is invited to join QDoc at Backstage, located around the corner from the Bagdad Theater, for a no-host celebration.
The Festival continues with ten more films, which will be presented at the McMenamins Kennedy School Theater in NE Portland. Check out the official QDoc website for more information on the films and the Festival!
