Filmmaker Bruce LaBruce is the featured keynote speaker. He will open the festival on Friday, April 15 at 7:30 p.m. with an address and screening of a selection of his work. A brief question and answer session will follow. LaBruce is a renowned radical queer filmmaker whose works include: No Skin Off My Ass (1991), Hustler White (1996), and Skin Flick (1998/1999). His films have appeared in major film festivals including Sundance, Cannes, London, Berlin, Dublin, Thessaloniki, Toronto, Vancouver, Tokyo and San Francisco.

The film and video festival is dedicated to presenting films and videos created out of intense personal commitment, which express the aesthetic, philosophical, or political view of the filmmaker without recourse to traditional narrative conventions. The event this year includes avant-garde work from across North America ranging from film collage to experimental narrative and documentary work.

This event is sponsored by Student Senate, SAS, Student Affairs, Film/New Media, and the Office of the Dean of College.
