The Durban Gay & Lesbian Film Festival is a labour of love. From a great deal of sacrifice, broad-based support and a number of stressful moments we have been able to bring to Durban’s cinema-loving public this 3rd annual DGLFF, taking place from Friday 14 June to Sunday 30 June 2013. The ongoing support and encouragement of the KZN Society of Arts gallery, as our venue partner and one of the two principal beneficiaries of the Festival, has been tremendous and we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Bren, Emme, Trevor, Fiorella, Johan and their teams!

This year we have cut our cloth to the pattern available to us and yet we have maintained a superb selection of features, documentaries and short films. From Bangladesh to Brazil, South Africa to Slovenia, the UK to the USA and Australia to Austria, filmmakers have blown the selection panel away with the superb quality of cinematography, sharp scripts and outstanding performances that these diverse productions have presented.

Again we have looked to South African filmmakers for great new stories and are pleased to present Bros B4 Ho’s, Samantha Lea’s debut doccie about drag kings and Memoirs of a Killarney Houseboy, an improvised tragi-queer film (shot entirely on an iPhone) starring Myer Taub as the Killarney Houseboy – an older gay man who was once the (caviar and) toast of the gay rave scene. Director Nadine Hutton has created a subversive piece of brilliance.

Moving the DGLFF to June was a natural progression away from previous rainy periods and is happily global LGBTI Pride Month - moreover we this year stage the Festival in conjunction with Durban Pride 2013, so our beloved city has certainly adopted June as the warmest and pinkest place to be this winter! (Info: www.durbanpride.org)

Also a huge thanks to the volunteers at the Festival this year and the support of the members and the Board of KZN Gay & Lesbian Tourism Association. Your ongoing support of the DGLFF makes my job really worthwhile.  AUDIENCE: Please make sure you leave us your contact details so that we can keep you up to date!

Festival Director

A number of special events and parties will take place along with 3 hosted directors giving Q&A’s in person during the festival.
 
 
From Bangladesh to Brazil, South Africa to Slovenia, the UK to the USA and Australia to Austria, there’s Israel and India to boot…filmmakers have blown the selection panel away with the superb quality of cinematography, sharp scripts and outstanding performances that these diverse productions present.

Moving the DGLFF to June was a natural progression - this year we stage the Festival in conjunction with Durban Pride 2013 away from previous rainy periods and it’s also GLOBAL LGBTI Pride Month nogal, - so our beloved city has certainly adopted June as the warmest place to be cool…and the pinkest…this winter!
