Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on Queer Experimental Film.
Saturday August 14th, 2021 – 12:00-15:00.

Queer history and queer culture are not as represented on Wikipedia as they should be. Many of the filmmakers and films that we screen this year at XPOSED or have screened in the past do not have Wikipedia articles in any language, despite having won awards or being of relevance for queer and feminist film history. We want to change that – and would love for you to be a part of it!
And the best thing is: You don’t need any previous knowledge: In this workshop, you will learn how to edit Wikipedia articles in English, German or any other language that you want to write in. We will show you all the technical things you need to know, but also how you can find information to base Wikipedia articles on. You can then choose an article to work on by yourself or in collaboration with others – and help to give queer experimental film more online exposure. You could come on either Saturday or Sunday or on both days.
Please let us know that you’re coming by writing a short email to thomas[at]xposedfilmfestival.com. Please bring a laptop, if possible – they work much better for editing Wikipedia than smartphones.
