Before this week's screening, FilmSoc will be holding its Annual General Meeting. We will be electing a brand new executive consisting of a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Sponsorship Officer, Events Officers and 4x General Executives. All are welcome to nominate for the positions, you will simply be asked to speak briefly to your nomination.

Dir. Jennie Livingstone - 1990 - USA
Right after we wrap up the AGM (~5:30pm) we'll start up this week's screening of Paris is Burning. Paris is Burning is a monumental 1990 documentary tracing the poor, African American and Latino gay and transgendered community involved in the drag ball culture of New York City. It's a witty and moving doco, directed with profound empathy by Jennie Livingstone.
