Did you miss the TG Film Fest in January?Unable to get in due to the SOLD OUT show?
We’re having an encore screening Feb 24th!
Featuring selections from the 2010 TG Film Fest, LA’s transgender film festival. These genre-blurring short films weave elements of documentary and narrative film to entertain and enlighten with sweet, seductive, and subversive visions from the queerest part of the LGBT spectrum. The screening includes works by established and emerging filmmakers including Iris prizewinner Lee Mi-Rang’s The Bath, and Transproofed by Andrea James and Calpernia Addams, the real-life subject of the Emmy-winning Soldiers Girl. Zsa-Zsa Gershick’s Door Prize won for Best Short at the 2010 Kansas City Gay and Lesbian Film Festival while award-winning Queerer Than Thou has screened at over 50 LGBT film festivals on four continents. These films will make your heart twinge, melt, race, and pound. Enjoy the ride!
FILMMAKERS IN ATTENDANCE!
I will be in attendance for a Q & A session to discuss Queerer Than Thou with my Co-Producer.
Tickets are ONLY $5 at the door!
