About the event

Robert Jerome Pagan leads a thought-provoking discussion at the International Queer Film & Art Forum (IQFAF), centered on representation, personal experiences, and the future of queer storytelling. Panelists will delve into the complexities of authentically portraying queer characters and the ultimate question: do you have to be queer to play queer?

Drawing from their own journeys and industry expertise, panelists will explore the importance of diverse representation on screen and behind the scenes. They'll share insights into navigating the nuances of queer narratives, while also addressing challenges and opportunities in the evolving landscape of filmmaking.

Attendees can expect a candid exchange of ideas, practical advice, and forward-thinking perspectives on the future direction of queer storytelling. From funding and distribution to the portrayal of authentic queer experiences, this panel promises to ignite meaningful dialogue and inspire new approaches to representation in cinema.
