Previous attendees have raved about the social opportunities built into this 3-day Poly Extravaganza, and this year is NO exception! Friday night you can join the Poly Speed Mixer, meeting the other participants in an entertaining environment, and then enjoy the spirited, vivacious performance of Big Girl Burlesque as they share their amazing (and sexy!) talents! A Roaring 20’s-themed ball on Saturday night provides an opportunity to mix and mingle with friends old and new, so start planning your costume now, and remember to visit our amazing Event Photographer who will be taking “Prom” style pictures, too!

The Midwest Poly Leadership Summit offers group leaders (and those interested in starting groups) a change to network and get advice from others dealing with those unique issues, and casual social space is included in the private event space, allowing a positive and supportive environment to chat with like-minded people!

The event also includes pop-up vendors offering a wide variety of fun, poly-friendly items (including the ever-popular cake-pops!), and a fabulous array of Silent Auction items which you won’t want to miss!

All this and much, much more, packed into this three-day Poly-stravaganza, and all for the LOW, low early bird price of $74?! Don’t wait- this price is only good for a limited time!

Exclamation Announcing North American Premiere of "Lutine" ("Poly")

I really hope you have your tickets! This event just keeps getting better and better!!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
http://beyondthelove.org/code-2/film/Lutine.html

North America Premiere Screening of "Lutine" to be shown at Beyond The Love, Polyamory Summit

Beyond The Love is thrilled to host the North American debut screening of “Lutine”, a polyamory docu-comedy produced by French director Isabelle Broué! (@isabellebroue )

“A director is filming a documentary on polyamory: somewhere between documentary and fiction, she takes risks and she cannot always measure the consequences… Will her sweetheart be able to stand up to the challenge of polyamory? Will she finish her film?”

“Lutine” is a docu-comedy. On the one hand: a serious, poised, and thought-through documentary with speakers who have reflected on the topic or who live it everyday. On the other hand: a comedy about a female director who plays with fire by testing out polyamory on her own relationship. Between the two, a grey area in which fiction gets entangled with reality.

Isabelle Broué is a director with a degree from FEMIS, the French national cinema school. She has directed numerous short and medium-length films, including: “A corps perdu”(“Boundless” ), selected by La Quinzaine des Réalisateurs at the Cannes Film Festival; “Henri Cartan” , mathematician, a 52-minute documentary; “Paris-Deauville” , a TV film for Arte; and a feature film called “ Tout le plaisir est pour moi”(“The Pleasure Is All Mine” , French DVD edition with English subtitles), with French actress Marie Gillain, released in theaters in 2004, which drew more than 200,000 spectators.

“Lutine” was self-produced by Isabelle Broué and shot in 2014 in Paris with the help of the Parisian polyamorous community and many other benefactors through crowdsourcing, using new lightweight technical methods corresponding to the nonstandard budget of this project, thus achieving optimal quality and total freedom of expression.

Isabelle Broué says about her film: “Its unconventional subject called for an unconventional production, as well as an unconventional format. Polyamorous people experiment new forms of relationships through polyamory, so I felt compelled to experiment a new form of writing and shooting, mixing both professional actors and “real” speakers about polyamory. The result is a new, fun and sometimes disorienting movie experience, as polyamory can sometimes be.”

More information about the film can be found on the web: http://lutineetcie.com/lutinelefilm/. Make sure to check your run book for show times! This is an incredible opportunity you won't want to miss!

Sarah,

I missed out on signing up on tome, but got on the waitlist. Are extra tickets going to be released to those on the waitlist?

Thanks,

Dennis

Hi Dennis! (And anyone else who has this question!)

The waitlist will get any tickets that folks have to cancel before the event (sometimes life just happens and people have to cancel!)

The event is capped, so unfortunately we can't really release additional tickets.

While I don't wish bad luck on anyone, I hope we get to see you this year, but if not, be sure to register early next year! We'll announce the ticket sales well in advance of the event itself. (You can also follow us on Twitter to get early announcements and other polyamory news! )

Kindly,

~Sarah
