Cruising the Movies

Monday, April 29 - Tuesday, June 11, 2024

“Cruising the Movies” is a new screening series at IFC Center that explores the fringes, the underground, and the oft ignored chapters of queer cinema history.

Each month, series programmers and hosts Elizabeth Purchell and KJ Shepherd will not only present a film outside the edges of mainstream gay cinema but also release a podcast that gives a deeper dive into the history, production, and impact of these selections. Through interviews, archival sources, and conversations with filmmakers, critics, and historians, this podcast and screening series will uncover how cinema is inextricable from queer history at large.
