The 2011 Pride Film Festival, in Review

Unlike last year where I had the oomph and time to write individual reviews for each film, this year, I do not.

Instead I’ll tell you about the highlights and a few of the lowlights.

Over all I’m under the general impression that there were fewer gay films this year, about the same number of […]

Watching Movies All Weekend Long!

Oh my! It’s Thursday evening already!

Wow – I haven’t posted since Monday morning and it’s now Thursday evening – and I will barely make it to posting this before my blog thinks it is Friday.

Long story short, I’ve had a great week.

I went to Fargo, North Dakota, in order to see old college friends – who moved to […]

Bloomington’s Pride Film Festival: A few last thoughts…

I’m probably one of a very few people who managed to make it to all 25 movies that were shown during Bloomington’s Pride Film Festival and I’ve talked about all but four at this point.

So to mention them, starting with the two shorts: The Island was an odd live-animation out of Canada in which […]

Pride Film Festival: Let’s talk about the T.

I guess that I’ve been somewhat fortunate that I’ve had incredible exposure to diversity in my life and that whenever I’m presented with something new, it rarely throws me for a loop.

Apparently I’m oblivious to the social problems that face the Ts because although I lived with one I never really […]

Holy Cow! An Excellent Lesbian Film at Pride Film Festival

Instead I’d like to report that “And Then […]

It’s So Gay: The Pride Film Festival Friday Steers Queer

I’m about to make a claim that may or may not be true, but from my perspective the vast majority of lesbian films are awful.

I’ve suffered through Go Fish and The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant, to name two of the worst. Lesbian films are filled with women sitting around and talking with […]

My Arm’s Been Banded: Pride Film Festival Night 1

Even though my birthday’s not quite here, yet, Mateo and Chaz have already given me my birthday present: a weekend pass to this year’s Pride Film Festival in Bloomington, Indiana.

Thus the timing of this trip to the States has worked out magnificently and instead of finding myself looking for things to do on the […]

Weekend Plans

The Buskirk Chumley Indiana Theater, Bloomington

This weekend is the Pride Film Festival here in Bloomington, and I am going every single night!

After figuring out how to navigate the festival’s calendar I realized that I’ve already seen two of the films: Patrick 1.5 and Coming Out.

The former I watched with my Pseudo […]
