GAZE LGBT Film Festival Launches Silver Anniversary Programme in Celebration of 25th Year

Katie McNeice

The 2017 edition of the festival was revealed with a lively launch party hosted by Lead Sponsor Accenture at The Dock, Accenture’s multi-disciplinary research and incubation hub at 7 Hanover Quay, yesterday, June 15th.

The festival runs for the August Bank Holiday weekend at Light House Cinema, Smithfield.

Speaking at the programme launch were ‘Handsome Devil’ writer/director John Butler, Festival Director Noel Sutton, Programmer Roisín Geraghty, Chairperson Mick Connell and Head of Inclusion and Diversity at Accenture Ireland, Dr. Michelle Cullen.

Musician Markus Feehily also performed ‘The Crying Game’ at the launch, highlighting the special retrospective screening of Neil Jordan’s classic film that will take place during the festival.

In celebrating its 25th year, the GAZE Film Festival 2017 celebrate Ireland’s LGBT journey over the past quarter century, and the role that storytelling has played in this historic narrative.

The festival will open with triumphant documentary ‘The 34th’, which tells the story of the driven and dedicated people who formed Marriage Equality in Ireland, and developed it into a highly effective grassroots force with one clear goal in mind – the extension of Civil Marriage to same sex couples.

In the wake of Brexit, a cornerstone of the programme is the British LGBT Film Focus, kindly supported by the British Council. With the aim of strengthening cultural ties with our closest neighbours, GAZE 2017 looks at how we can continue to develop artistic relations with the United Kingdom. Not only that, but it is very significant that in this year the UK is also celebrating the 50th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality.

The British series includes ‘Young Soul Rebels’ and ‘Queerama’, which document British queer history, and films like ‘The Book of Gabrielle’ and ‘The Dark Mile’, which reflect on contemporary LGBT life in the UK.

This year’s Saturday Night Centrepiece screening will showcase ‘Tom of Finland’, a timeless biopic of a world famous cult figure. ‘Tom of Finland’ brings to screen the life and work of one of the most influential and celebrated figures of twentieth century gay culture.

The film chosen to close the special 25th anniversary of the festival is ‘God’s Own Country’, one of the most talked about and critically praised LGBT film titles of 2017. Both poignant and moving, it is bracingly open-hearted, with a host of stunning standout performances, making it the must-see film of GAZE 2017.

Noel Sutton, Festival Director, GAZE:
“The whole GAZE team are extremely excited to celebrate our 25th festival and to continue to bring the best in LGBT cinema to audiences in Dublin. It’s such a remarkable honour to be Festival Director of this special festival, for this very special anniversary year.

“Without the help of our valuable supporters, including our Lead Sponsor Accenture who have been simply wonderful, we wouldn’t be able to bring such a wealth of choices to our enthusiastic audiences, many of whom travel from across the country and indeed internationally for the festival each year. We welcome all audiences to our festival to sample the eclectic programme, especially in this year when we’ll be reflecting on the journey of the LGBT community in Ireland and internationally, over the last 25 years.”

Dr Michelle Cullen, Head of Inclusion and Diversity, Accenture Ireland:
“We are incredibly proud to support the GAZE International LGBT Film Festival, now in our sixth year. Every day around the world, Accenture puts the power of diversity into action and the team at GAZE have been doing this for 25 years. Diversity makes us stronger and film is a powerful platform that connects people. The GAZE Film Festival provides this shared platform for people to watch films together to create awareness, insights, and empathy for changing attitudes in Ireland. We are delighted to support the LGBT community in telling these powerful stories through film.”

Short Video Of Markus Singing ‘The Crying Game’

Ahhh we’ve been missing hearing THAT VOICE live so much and we were over the moon to see that Accenture Dock shared a short but breathtaking video of Markus Feehily’s soulful vocals on the song ‘The Crying Game‘ at yesterday’s GAZE Film Festival 25th Anniversary Celebration Event. 🙌🙌

The song was first released by Dave Berry in 1964 and has been covered by artists such as Brenda Lee, Boy George (his version also featuring in the 1992 movie The Crying Game, directed by Irish director Neil Jordan) and more.

So proud of our lad, we keep playing the little video over and over again! 😉🎵😃🎤

Backing Vocals By Markus On Nerina Pallot’s New Album

According to the following article by About Manchester, Markus Feehily joins Nerina Pallot on her new album, ‘Stay Lucky’, singing backing vocals on three of her songs: ‘Bird’, ‘Man Didn’t Walk On The Moon’ and ‘Come Into My Room’. The album will be released on October 13th and we can’t wait to listen to it, as well as Markus’ BVs on the three songs! 😊🎧🎶🙌

EDIT: Nerina Pallot tweeted that she can’t wait for everyone to hear how amazing Markus sounds. 😉🎶 *whoop, roll on!*

Nerina Pallot is heading to Gorilla

Nerina Pallot - About Manchester

By Nigel Barlow

Nerina Pallot has announced details of her forthcoming album ‘Stay Lucky’, which will be released on October 13 on Idaho Records. The first single to be taken from the album is the title track ‘Stay Lucky’ is available to listen to now HERE. The Brit and Ivor Novello Award nominated musician will follow the album’s release with a UK tour, which includes Manchester’s Gorilla on November 13

Her sixth album, ‘Stay Lucky’ was written and produced by Pallot and recorded over two weekends at London’s RAK studios. The speed belies the lovely, unhurried expansiveness of an album that is, truly and deeply, her most personal, most warmly emotional album yet.

Pallot plays piano, analogue synthesiser, guitar and percussion, and is joined by musicians including Bernard Butler (guitar on ‘Bring Him Fire’, ‘Come Back To Bed’ and ‘All Gold’), Markus Feehily (backing vocals on ‘Bird’, ‘Man Didn’t Walk On The Moon’ and ‘Come Into My Room’) and Rod Thomas AKA Bright Light Bright Light (BV’s on ‘Stay Lucky’ and ‘All Gold’). The core group on the album are from Michael Kiwanuka’s touring band – Steve Pringle on keys, Alex Bonfanti on bass and Lewis Wright on drums.

The album opens with ‘Juno’, which swells and builds and is Pallot’s take on the likes of Massive Attack’s ‘Teardrop’ and Little Dragon’s ‘Twice’. “I like songs that creep up, creep round,” she says. “They don’t follow simple pop lines.”

The sublime ‘Man Didn’t Walk On The Moon’ comes across like a soulful reboot of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’ (“I was actually trying to do Steely Dan’s ‘Do It Again!’” ), whereas ‘Heart Is A Lonely Hunter’ – named after Carson McCullers’ 1940 debut novel – is a perfectly poised, wee-hours, spellbinding jazz. The album closes with ‘Bird’, which begins softly with keys and acoustic guitar, like one of her musical heroines, Joni Mitchell, before blooming into a gospel-tinged soul belter, complete with a nod to Jill Scott.

‘Come Back To Bed’ is a deeply sexy cri de coeur to her husband, while the glorious title track is for their young son. Sonically, ‘Stay Lucky’ speaks to the Serge and Charlotte Gainsbourg records (notably the latter’s second album, ‘5.55’, which featured Air), big influences for the quarter-French Pallot. Lyrically, it’s a wish for the future, a shaft of positivity beaming out into the world. That, she acknowledges, is why it’s the album title, and why it’s the lead track.

“You know, least year was such a fucking weird year,” she sighs. “People were dying left, right and centre, the political system was so fucked up…”

But rather than rage in the new songs she was writing, she found solace. Pallot found herself thinking back to reading The Wasteland at university. Her tutor pointed out that in times of war, “when shit goes down, people are more inclined to get pissed and shag than they are to take to the streets, because you just want to anaesthetise yourself. So that’s kind of my feel.”

“Basically, it’s my death and shagging record,” she concludes. “That I hope people will get high and shag to, but hopefully not die while doing so!”
