Hello Friends! Please join me at London’sCinema Museum on 2 March 2023 for an amazing reunion of filmmakers and festival organizers. Look how far we’ve come! Since the first Wotever DIY Film Festival (my first one was 2013) so many brilliant festivals began, many of them connected somehow to the Wotever DIY Film Festival. My fondest wish is that we can all have some time together, and no one will have to be running a festival, we will all just be hanging out.
Here are the details:
2 March 2023 18:00 – 2200 (plenty of time to socialize!) Cinema MuseumThe Master’s House, 2 Dugard Way (off Renfrew Road), London SE11 4TH
Photos with Kyla Harris, Tara Brown, Theresa Heath, Charlie Little and Helen Wright at BFI Southwark at the “Busting The Bias Opening Night: Is There Anybody Out There? An Illustrated Talk + ECLECTIC: Shorts Programme, an evening celebrating disability visibility and filmmaking. 3 March 2023.
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)
