Our third year was our biggest yet. We took over an entire Victorian school building, screened a host of World, European and UK premieres including opening film Five Dances, One Zero One, In Their Room London, which was produced during Fringe! 2012. and Hide & Seek. We presented an eye-opnening strand looking at the life of marginalised queer people, the elderly and those living with HIV.
The art section of the festival was also expanded with a Bob Mizer exhibition and shorts programmes, a collaboration with Bruce La Bruce and exhibitions by Freya Najade and Pennie Key.
Year Two saw Fringe! expand considerably with almost 50 events including the special preview of I Want Your Love as our opening film, a very fringey take on gym classes, The First Love Project, female ejaculation workshops, the Little Joe Clubhouse and an unforgettable screening of In Bed with Madonna to a sold out Rio. It also marked the first time that our art programme really took off with our first commission Super 8 Cam, exhibitions, fashion shorts and a whole day of art events at Town Hall Hotel.
In Fringe!'s inaugural year we screened over 20 films in venues from cinemas to pie & mash shops from features to shorts. There were Sapphic Subversions and Fake Orgasms, a riotous Showgirls screening and classics such as Taxi Zum Klo.
