D-Fest 2012 @ The Auburn Saloon - I didn’t take any pictures of the show because taking a picture of a burlesque performer seemed a little creepy but this was a fundraiser for the Calgary Dyke March. They had a silent auction with different prizes and packages. I wanted to bid on the Date Night package so I could get a $50 gift card to Diner Deluxe. It wasn’t worth $110…
Fairy Tales Film Festival - I went down to the Plaza Theater for the Fairy Takes Film Festival and watched the Swedish film “Kiss Me.” The synopsis for it says:
Mia (Ruth Vega Fernandez) and Frida (Liv Mjönes), both in their thirties, meet each other for the first time at their parents’ engagement party. Mia’s father, Lasse (Krister Henriksson), is about to get married to Frida’s mother, Elizabeth (Lena Endre), which will make Mia and Frida stepsisters. Lasse’s daughter, Mia, has not visited her father in years and arrives with her boyfriend, Tim (Joakim Nätterqvist), with whom she is about to get married. As Mia and Frida get to know one another, strong emotions begin to stir between them. Their relationship will turn everything upside down for everyone close to them with dramatic consequences.
It was really cute in a not-so-traditional way. I liked the cast and the set except I spent a lot of the time wondering how much of the furniture was from IKEA.
