Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's Yellow to Arcade Fire's Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

In the dusty white plains of the Nevada Desert, 60,000 people come together each year to create a temporary city called Burning Man, an infamous eight-day arts festival and social experiment based on principles of radical self-expression. Tag team Grillo and Nelsen travel to the Playa on a quest to delve deep into a subset of this radical population, Camp Beaverton, the desert oasis where lesbians, bisexuals and trans* come to play and explore their sexual and personal boundaries. From clit- tail social hours and the infamous strap-on-a-thon, Camp Beaverton is possibly the largest play party for women on the planet. This amiable and fun documentary focuses on personalities rather than events, as Grillo and Nelsen explore what attracts women to Camp Beaverton in the first place. USA - 2014

A light-hearted tale of intergenerational love and desire, Bruce LaBruce’s latest film follows the story of a young man called Lake who finds himself attracted to much older men. When Lake takes a job as a care assistant at a local nursing home his secret desire draws him to one of the residents, 81-year-old Melvyn, a flamboyant older person. Their friendship quickly develops into lust and when the time is right, Lake liberates Melvyn from his drug-hazed confinement and they set off on a road trip together. In our youth-obsessed culture, where the idea of older people having sexual desire is almost ta- boo, Gerontophilia is a beautifully captured antidote to ageism. Canada - 2013

A documentary portrait, The Dog follows the life of John Wojtowicz, who spectacularly attempted to rob a Brooklyn bank in 1972 in order to finance his lover’s gender sex-reassignment surgery. His attempted heist was the real-life inspiration for Dog Day Afternoon (1975), starring Al Pacino. As family members and former lovers attest in candid interviews, ‘The Dog’s’ dogged determination to express his fluid sexuality, whether under the covers, behind bars or in the media spotlight, put him at the forefront of the gay rights movement. Filming for more than a decade, co-directors Berg and Keraudren’s extraordinary efforts have resulted in an unforgettable portrait of an unlikely gay- liberation icon and unrepentant ex-con.

Special Film Qlub Screening. Sponsored by the French Embassy in Ireland and the Institut Français. French, with English subtitles. The film will be screened from a 35 mm copy. Free tea/coffee before the film (please present your ticket at the bar) Open discussion after the screening. Director Alain Guiraudie (Stranger By The Lake) is relatively unknown in Ireland, and we are taking this opportunity to show an earlier (possibly better) film of his, The King of Escape. A chubby gay tractor-salesman yearning for romance is having a middle-age crisis: maybe he should get fit, go straight, settle down, get a wife and kids, live a normal life. So how on earth does he end up rocketing through the French countryside fuelled by magic mushrooms, accused of abducting a teenage girl, with the police and a bunch of gay tractor- salesmen in hot pursuit? The King of Escape has a comic book quality. It could be titled ‘The misadventures of a chubby gay feminist superhero out in the sticks’. It gets faster, funnier and madder by the minute. And it shows that, no matter how hard you try, you can not escape who you are. France - 2009

From the scary butch warden in the Hollywood classic Caged to the feisty girls in British borstal drama Scrubbers, women-in-prison films and television programmes are filled with instances of female sexuality that transgress the norm, becoming sites for lesbian expression. From forbidden love affairs in Bad Girls to tender looks between jailer and inmate in Yield to the Night, there is something about caged lesbians that we love.
