Event Information

In 2010, former BFI film festival programmer Jason Barker took to the stage sporting a rather impressive baby bump. But, while Jason’s pregnant trans-male body was a thing of true beauty, beneath the bump was a much bigger story dating back many years. 

In his debut film, assembled entirely from home video footage which he and his partner Tracey shot over the course of a decade, Barker tells the fascinating story behind their journey to conceive.

Starting as a community cinema operating in Birmingham looking to grow appetites and audiences for Queer and LGBTQIA+ films and champion New Queer Cinema in the region - with a focus on the perspectives of Queer Trans and Intersex People of Colour (QTIPOC) - CineQ has now grown into a two day festival. CineQ Queer Film Festival will run from the 22nd -24th March 2019. For more information follow @CineQBrum.

MAC’s reopening cinema programme has been generously supported by BFI FAN Covid-19 Resilience fund from the National Lottery, through the BFI Film Audience Fund.
