What Is Flaming Classics?
Flaming Classics electrifies the movie-going experience through a curated film series, pairing films from the queer canon with live performances from local drag artists to create a one-of-a-kind event for South Florida. Infused with a sense of social activism, community building, and fun, the series aspires to entertain and educate.
Based at the Bill Cosford Cinema, each Flaming Classics event includes an introduction, a screening, and a tailored live performance. The juxtaposition of film history with queer performance produces a diverse audience and the idea of inclusion is a guiding force to the series. Connection and conversation are the two central tenets of Flaming Classics. By recontextualizing the cinematic experience and relocating the space of queer performance art, the series hopes to create a unique experience for the community.
