Queer City Cinema ran May 21-23 this year. It was a hectic stretch for the arts in Regina, as the run coincided with the last three days of the Cathedral Village Arts Festival, and live theatre runs for Mary Poppins and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.
If you missed the festival, or perhaps want to revisit some of the short films and videos that artistic director Gary Varro presented, the Dunlop Art Gallery is hosting a free screening of work from the festival on Tuesday Aug. 4.
You can find a bit more detail on QCC 2015, and the festival theme of Layers, here. And Tuesday’s screening goes at 7 p.m. at the RPL Film Theatre.
A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
