The Lesbian and Gay Film Festival Hamburg and Bildwechsel present during this years Lesbian and Gay Film Festival Hamburg:
TOO QUEER FOR MTV
Turning their backs on the notion of mass-appeal and profiting from the accessibility to technology and new broadcast channels, a large and diverse group of people are producing music-videos with a stance that reminds us of what punk was once all about: the do-it-yourself attitude. This is a selection of witty, daring, trashy, queer video-clips you will not be seeing on MTV anytime soon.
when: Friday, 19th of October, 2007 – midnight
venue: Metropolis Kino, Dammtorstr. 30a, Hamburg (metropolis-hamburg.de)
