Well, my new year started with a a limp literally and stay-at-home/curfew. I’m working on a new movie (rather re-working an old one) and have big plans for more. I just need the time and attention. LOL
Here is a photo me, out to brunch with my entourage after the QFlix Philly local film showcase.
“My Aunt Mame” was included in a “Best of Bechdel” film showcase at the She Burns Bright Festival in Akron, Ohio and also was shown at a Queers In Shorts event in Cambridge, UK. I am so proud of that little movie. I think it successfully shows the reality of queer/eldercare – being alone as an elder queer/being the child who does the eldercare/ worry from parents that queer children will have hard lives.
“My Aunt Mame” and “My Crazy Boxers” will be showing in the Gilbert Baker Film Festival happening online here from November 24th – Sunday December 12th, 2021. I’m very pleased that my movies were included, and i hope the festival is a huge success. Please buy tickets and watch!
It’s with happiness and humility that I can share that these festivals have selected my films:
FilmPride, available online August 16 – 31, 2021, will be the World Premiere of my new movie Have You Ever Thought Why. It is included in the SELF program.
Prism 34 / AGLIFF : has selected Carol for the “Avant Garde” program, which will be available online from August. 26 – Sept. 6, 2021. The Avant Garde film program description reads; “Is it a film? Is it an art piece? Is that a penis? You never know what you find in this assortment of inventive filmmaking not bound by narrative.”
Les Mains Gauches happens the 9th to the 12th of Septembre 2021 in Marseille, France. They have selected My Crazy Boxers.
Isn’t it hilarious that my parody of Carol will be screening at the prestigious aGLIFF / Prism Film Festival this year?! Did you know that Austin is where it all started — I entered the My Gay Movie competition in 2004 and won the prize for the weirdest movie. And it’s only gotten weirder since then. Here’s the lineup:
My parody of the aclaimed film CAROL will be shown on Wednesday 5th 9.30pm (BST) in the LOVE program. Then repeated on the same day and time w/c 10th August.
FilmPride Brigton be screening a selection of the films in a series of television shows from 3rd to 16th August, on Latest TV Brighton, Freeview 7 & Virgin Media 159, and on 13 local television channels throughout the UK.
Latest TV is available in Brighton and surroundings on Freeview 7 & Virgin Media 159. (They stream some of their shows online, but FilmPride will not be streamed)
Elated that Team Dykeumentary will be included in this prestigious festival! My Crazy Boxers is in the Up To And Including Her Limits screening, and a saucy re-writing of the sexist biblical tale The Genesis of Butch & Femme is in the Fringe! B Movie Resistance program. Grateful!!! Excellent!!!
Navigating societal constraints and internal upheaval, the female characters at the centre of these works contend with a loss of control and spiralling selfhoods.
Steffie Yee manifests the language lost between matrilineal generations through pencil and plasticine, alongside animator Flóra Anna Buda’s sensual, lucid imaginings of a braless queer future. Video artist Hannah Perry probes our culture’s relationship to death, mental health and the underlying weight of gender in an experimental elegy, whilst Krissy Mahan tires of the incessant gendering of underwear. Guest programmed by Jenna Roberts. 83’
An intensely personal yet universal exploration of the experience of loss, marking the first time Perry has chosen to address the tragedy of the recent suicide of her best friend and artistic collaborator, Pete Morrow. Using a custom rigged 360° camera, this is a moving inquiry into romance, psychosis and our relationship to death.
Suicidal – or just a working class butch dyke caught in the wrong underpants? Seems that the boxers were the bigger problem, according to my treatment team. Based on the director’s actual meetings with hospital staff while in a psychiatric hospital system.
When the going gets tough, the queers grab our cameras and make DIY, B-movie resistance films bursting with political power, revolt, and lashings of glitter. From a much-needed rewrite of the creation story, to zombie drag queens and goth punks… It’s so much more fun on the B-side! Programmed by Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Festival. 95’
When a clique of mean girls bully Cassie for not “looking like a girl” in the school bathroom, they awaken a dangerous rage deep within her in a creative response to controversial “bathroom bill” legislation.
