We are disappointed today to hear the GO.GO Fest 2012 has had to be cancelled.
Despite a long run at promotion, offers and a fantastic line up that included acts such as Uh Huh Her, Betty and Jill Jackson, and a much more accessible venue for Londoners, it appears that not enough women were drawn to the festival billed as a non stop 72 hour party for women.
This feature originally aired at LLGFF in 2007 as a short. Writer/Director Dee Rees started Pariah as a feature but whilst interning on Spike Lee’s ‘Inside Man’ and writing her master thesis, she took the first act and shot it as a short – so successful it led to the feature being made.
Soho Hotel saw the glamorous launch, decorated by nubile bods in banana hammocks and bikinis, of new Film distribution platform Swim Cinema and its flagship first movie, the documentary Revealing Mr Maugham which premiers at the Lesbian and Gay Film Festival this week.
It's one of our favourite times of the year for many reasons: we love films; we love films with gay characters; we love high lesbian and gay visibility in London; and we love the atmosphere that comes with the annual BFI's London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival on the Southbank.
