Dirty Looks turns 5 this winter. 5 years presenting and creating spaces for queer film, video and performance. This is a key moment for us. Earlier this year, we began bi-coastal programming, with regular screenings in both New York City and Los Angeles, and multiple collaborations with queer initiatives and cultural institutions internationally. We want to celebrate our coming-of-age with our most faithful and supportive audience: New York City, the city that saw us start and grow.

Wednesday November 4 DL host a 5 Year Anniversary Benefit premiering for the occasion Jill Reiter's In Search of Margo-Go, (1994, 35min), a lost masterpiece of Riot Grrrl cinema presented in New York City. 

Refreshments provided by Material Vodka and Brooklyn Brewery. 5 Years On is fiscally sponsored by Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art.
