Riot around the world
October 26 2018
As the northern hemisphere was hit with a sweltering summer, Riot screened across the UK, Europe and the US. Highlights from the festival circuit included opening Gaze Film Festival in Dublin where producer Joanna Werner introduced the screening, alongside the Australian Ambassador to Ireland. Riot screened as part of the festival’s extensive focus on cinema from down under.
Riot also screened at Frameline, the world’s longest-running and largest showcase of queer cinema. Producer Louise Smith together with 78ers Gabrielle Antolovich and John Hughes were in attendance at the legendary Castro Theatre in San Francisco.
