As Reel Sponsors for two of the films at the Vancouver Queer Film Festival, Vancouver Frontrunners have 12 tickets to each film to give away, and we’d like to see you there.
Express your interest by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may select both! If we have 12 entries or less, then the ticket is yours. If we receive more than 12 entries, then we’ll pull names out of a hat on Wednesday, August 9th at our regular Wednesday Run Club at the Roundhouse. The only condition of entry is that you’re a paid member or a signed participant of the Learn To Run clinic currently in progress.
Details about the films:
Friday, Aug 11 | 7:00:00 PM | SFU – Djavad Mowafaghian Cinema
Description: Following the tragic death of her partner, Lauren retreats to her childhood home in Oklahoma reuniting her with her sweet but less-than-accepting mother—played by actress Beth Grant, known for playing conservatives and religious zealots (Little Miss Sunshine, The Mindy Project). The arrival of young wine entrepreneur Carrie—played by Laura Spencer (The Big Bang Theory, Bones)—rouses Lauren from her grief. However, Carrie may be the last women Lauren should develop a crush on. Heartland is a satisfying contemporary take on a forbidden lesbian love drama.
Second Screening: Wednesday, Aug 16 | 9:30:00 PM | Cineplex Odeon International Village
Description: Summer arrives and Elias, a young assistant at a busy garment factory in Sao Paulo, is dreaming of carefree parties and hot hook-ups. Outside of the factory’s long hours, Elias becomes increasingly interested in connecting with work colleagues, including a casual and tender fling with a flirty co-worker. Despite upper management warning him not to fraternize with the “common” floor workers, he finds a new joy in the acceptance and openness of his fellow young working class friends. When his much older and wealthy ex-boyfriend re-enters his life, Elias endeavours to bring the separate parts of his life together for the biggest party of the summer.
