Winner of The Audience Award at The Camden International Film Festival. Queendom will be in UK cinemas from Friday, December 1st.

Dogwoof is excited to announce the release of Agniia Galdanova’s documentary QUEENDOM in UK cinemas on December 1st, 2023. Officially selected to screen as part of the Documentary Competition at BFI London Film Festival, QUEENDOM will receive its UK Premiere on October 6th at the ICA.

Earlier this year QUEENDOM had its world premiere playing in competition at SWSX. And has since picked up the Next: Wave Award at CPH: DOX in Copenhagen. And The Audience Award at The Camden Film Festival.



QUEENDOM follows Gena Marvin (she/her, non-binary), a queer artist from a small town in Russia who dresses in otherworldly costumes made from junk and tape and protests the government on the streets of Moscow. Born and raised on the harsh streets of Magadan, a frigid outpost of the Soviet gulag, Gena is only 21. She stages radical performances in public that become a new form of art and activism.

By doing that, she wants to change people’s perception of beauty and queerness and bring attention to the harassment of the LGBTQ+ community. The performances – often dark, strange, evocative, and queer at their core – are a manifestation of Gena’s subconscious. But they come at a price.
