Waiting for B - Queer Nation Film Festival
Saturday 3 June, 2017 - 7:30 pm

1h 11min |Documentary|

So Beyoncé is coming to town. First, you need tickets. Second, you need an outfit. Third, you need your crew. What else? To make it perfect, you really need to be first in the line. That’s the conclusion we come to in this fresh documentary about a crew of queer kids who camp outside a São Paulo venue for two months in order to be first through the gates. Waiting for B is a kitschy, light-hearted and delightfully camp portrayal of pop culture, mega-fandom and celebrity, seen through the eyes of young Brazilians who create dazzling homemade costumes and are determined to make Beyoncé’s performance the greatest night of their lives. This is one for the super fans of the Beyhive. Now let’s get in formation!

Directors: Paulo Cesar Toledo, Abigail Spindel

Queer Nation Film Festival 2017, running 1-3 June 2017, is a pop-up collaboration between the Bernie Grant Arts Centre and long-running club night Queer Nation.

Patrick Lilley’s Queer Nation opened in 1990 and has been hosting weekly events in London ever since, with outings and events in Brighton, Manchester, Paris and Milan. In 2002, Queer Nation partnered with mobile network 02 to create a photographic history of LGBT clubbing since World War II. Queer Nation has hosted parties and events at London Pride, as well as community fundraisers and most recently a short film club, Queer Nation Shortz, in collaboration with ArtHertz.

Curators of the Queer Nation Film Festival include Patrick Lilley, Dennis Da Silva, Batty Mama, and Hakeem Kazeem for the Bernie Grant Arts Centre.
