TWIST, formerly known as the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, runs from October 13 to October 23rd. After 21 years TWIST has demonstrated itself as the premier queer film festival in the Pacific Northwest. TWIST programs will focus on up and coming local film makers, show award winning documentaries, and explore how films can re-shape the way their audiences think and talk about identity.
Another important change to this year’s film festival is the addition of TWIST 360°. TWIST 360° is an immersive media festival that will feature virtual reality exhibits and experiments. One example is The Machine to be Another, which allows attendees to switch bodies using virtual reality. There will also be an intensive training course for LGBTQ artists who want to learn how to create immersive content. Participants in the VR boot camp will be given the opportunity to bounce ideas off a panel of immersive pioneers, innovators, and industry leaders such as Rose Troche (Six Feet Under, Go Fish, The L Word).
TWIST will be showing films at venues all throughout Seattle! For more information or to purchase tickets visit their website.
