Our Screen Heritage

Celebrating, preserving and sharing the LGBTQIA+ film heritage of Kent and the South East

Screen Archive South East (SASE), in partnership with Queer Heritage South, devised this project for the National Lottery Heritage Fund. It is dedicated to working with two LGBTQIA+ organisations in the South East – Folkestone Pride and Margate Pride – so that together they can collect, curate and exhibit films/moving images related to the life of our LGBTQIA+ communities. This new collection will be preserved, digitised and catalogued and be made freely available to us all to see.

The project runs from December 2021 to March 2023 and volunteers are at the heart of their work. As Community Curators, they’ve been introduced to heritage issues & practices, the development of LGBTQIA+ heritage and are involved in the curation of films for preservation and exhibition.

This exhibition celebrates the work of the project and runs through October 2020 in the Museum’s temporary exhibition space. It forms part of a wider programme of events curated by the project, which can be found by CLICKING THIS LINK
