Composing Cultures + Filmmaker Madeleine Lim

Composing Cultures: Queer Women Writers Talk About Diversity


I just got notice from Cali artist colleague Kebo Drew--an Astraea Foundation Award winner and Pat Parker/Audre Lorde ZAMI award-winner, and a Cave Canem alum (yes, they are everywhere!) is going to be on a panel of queer women poets discussing diversity. Because of the panelists I expect this will have considerably more depth than these diversity panels usually offer. Also scheduled to participate is Cindy Emch, another Cali artist/film colleague, and widely published chapbook author--the latest is Tobacco Brunette (I love the title, but I hope it's just a color reference)--and founder of Queer Open Mic at the Three Dollar Bill Cafe (as in "queer as a-"). Both are pictured above--Kebo in the fabulous hat and Cindy with the "poet" tatoo). If you click on the image above you'll see the full descriptions and expressive photos of each of the speakers. I've seen them each read/perform except for Irina Contreras. But each of the folks I've heard--Kebo, Cindy, and Meliza Bañales brings the goods. I wish I could be there.

Filmmaker Madeleine Lim, July 15 @ Femina Potens Gallery, San Francisco

I missed listing this in a timely manner, but thought I would put it up anyway because Madeleine Lim is doing such necessary work: training the next generation of queer women of color filmmakers in San Francisco as Executive Director of Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project where the project has produced more than 80 films by women of color. The Singapore-born and raised Lim lives in San Francisco where she has been doing this work for close to ten years now. As is the case for many artists who take on active roles as arts advocates/educators, showing her own work has come second to teaching others and curating shows of other folks films/videos. So this was a rare opportunity to attend a screening of Lim's films & videos.

Femina Potens Gallery showcases its innovative monthly
film series, Down & Dirty: the Intimate World of Queer
Filmmaking on Saturday, June 17, 2006, featuring
selected shorts from queer filmmaker MADELEINE LIM.

The ongoing series features film and dialogue with Bay
Area Queer Filmmakers as part of Femina Potens 2006
Film Screenings. Celebrate and promote local queer,
trans, and women video artists as we feature intimate
and interactive conversations with local filmmakers, a
shot-by-shot analysis of their filmmaking process,
stories from behind the scenes, and the inside scoop
on San Francisco's filmmaking community. Each film
is followed by an intimate Q&A with the audience.

Award-winning filmmaker MADELEINE LIM is so
infamous for her role as Executive Director of Queer
Women of Color Media Arts Project, which has produced
more than 80 films by women of color in our town that,
seeing her own film's screened together in one night is
a rare and special treat! Screening the banned in
Singapore, award-winning film, "Sambal Belacan in San
Francisco", the delightful short, "Dream" and the
experimental, "Dragon Desire", Lim will share her
experiences making films and teaching others to make
their own in San Francisco.
