A queer summer camp for kids would be the easy way to describe Canadian filmmaker Jen Markowitz’s latest feature documentary, but it’s so much more than this. Using mostly fly-on-the-wall cinematography Summer Qamp provides a sincere lens into the lives, hardships, successes, highs and lows of a group of queer campers, many of whom are trans, non-binary or just trying to figure themselves out. Seeing a new generation of kids grapple with and talk about pronouns, coming out, having crushes, the complexity of transitioning, gender expression, clothing and more amidst the backdrop of a summer camp setting shouldn’t feel like such a revelation, but it is. It’s the summer camp queer-kid dreams are made of, and seeing young queer joy on screen still feels truly radical in 2023.

The Rooftop Cinema will host you with a fabulous bar and sausage sizzle (with vegan options) from 7:00pm. Screenings commencing at sundown (approximately 8:30pm). Enjoy a fine selection of cheese, crackers and goodies supplied by The Little Social – available for pre-purchase below, ready for collection when you arrive!

Rooftop Cinema is an outdoor event with picnic-style seating – attendees are encouraged to bring rugs and blankets.

Food and drinks will be available from the Rooftop Cinema bar. No external food or alcohol is permitted.
