Resilience & Hope (Short Films) with Gaywise FESTival
Sun 13th Nov 2016 - 8pm


GFEST 2016 feature and short films line-up present this year’s theme of marginalised and ‘out and proud’ LGBTIQ identities in complimenting or contrasting way.

The screenings at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre provide a unique opportunity to engage with films about African LGBTiQ communities. It is a combination of a community event with locally based community groups including the Out & Proud Diamond Group and two screenings. Doors open at 4.00 pm, with screenings at 5.30pm and 8.00pm. There will be ample opportunity for Q/A and discussion.

And Still We Rise

(documentary; directors: Richard Lusimbo and Nancy Nicol; Uganda 2015)

A story of courage and resilience, the film follows Richard Lusimbo, researcher and documentation manager for Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG), as he documents the impact of the 2014 Anti-Homosexual Act (AHA) in Uganda and the resistance by civil society in Uganda, led by SMUG and the Civil Society Coalition on Human Rights and Constitutional Law.


(short documentary; director: Mwiza Nyirenda; Malawi 2013)

A first person documentary on homosexuality in Malawi that investigates the complexities of tolerance, acceptance and culture in relationship to LGBTIQ rights.

Being Unbound

(short documentary; director: Anna Wistreich; United Kingdom/Tanzania 2015)

The film centres around Mwamba, a female-to-male trans-person living openly in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and follows Mwamba and his fellow activist-friends in their fight to create safe spaces and dialogue around a concept that is unknown to almost everyone in Tanzania.


Same Love (Remix)

(music video; Art Attack; Kenya 2015)

A Kenyan music video of an African-themed remix of American hip hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ marriage equality anthem "Same Love”: it became a song about LGBTIQ rights and struggles, gender equalities and civil liberties for all sexual orientations across Africa. It was banned by the Kenya Film Classification Board in February 2016.
