Antoine Damiens is a FRQSC Postdoctoral Fellow at McGill University. His first book, LBGTQ Film Festivals: Curating Queerness (Amsterdam University Press, 2020) both discusses forgotten North American and European LGBTQ film festivals organized from the 1970s to the early 2000s and examines the political project and methodology of festival studies. He is currently working on a short monograph on Cyril Collard's 1992 French HIV/AIDS film Les nuits fauves (with McGill Queen's University Press). Antoine also leads the Feminist and Queer Research Workgroup within the European Network for Cinema and Media Studies (NECS) and co-edits the festival reviews section of the journal NECSUS. He has worked and/or curated programmes for several international festivals, including Festival de Cannes's Queer Palm.
