About the Event
Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival, in partnership with The Clowder Group invite you to Reel in the Closet - a documentary that reveals the lives of LGBTQ people from the past through moments from hundreds of never before seen home movies dating back to the 1930s. The story of queer cinema is becoming better known, but this documentary, for the first time, speaks through these 'snapshots', made by LGBTQ people themselves at the time. Many such home movies were, and probably still are being destroyed, so this documentary is a remarkable record.
Since it was first screened by SRFF in 2016, as part of the National Festival of LGBT History, there have been many requests to see it again and we are very pleased to be able now to do so, thanks to the generosity of the Clowder Group. .
