The Thomas Edison Film Festival: A Celebration of Pride
June 17, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The Thomas Edison Film Festival and Hoboken Historical Museum warmly invite you to a very special Pride celebration.
TEFF and HHM are proud to be hosting a film festival on Saturday, June 17 in partnership with the podcast hosts of Remakes, Reboots & Revivals, to honor Pride Month. Remakes, Reboots & Revivals is a podcast created by Rolando Nieves and Nicole Pometti, who identify as queer, Latinx filmmakers.
The evening at the Hoboken Historical Museum kicks off with a reception at 6:30pm. At 7:00pm, hosts Rolando and Nicole will present a live intro to selected cutting-edge documentary shorts, Leo & Nymphia and Inside the Beauty Bubble, from the TEFF’s 2023 collection. After the screening, they will return to host a live-recorded talk back and discussion with the audience, which will be available on their podcast through June 2023.
Directed by Hsin-An Pan, Leo & Nymphia is a documentary that focuses on Cao Liou (Leo), a 25-year-old drag queen known as “Nymphia.”
Directed by Cheryl Bookout and Cheri Gaulke, Inside the Beauty Bubble is a documentary film about a renowned collector of hair artifacts fighting to keep his desert dreams alive.
We are excited to see you at the Museum for this event!
