Pink Screens = Celluloid Dreams is back again, as we continue with another list of upcoming queer films that I’m excited about and are certainly worthy of your support. Thank you to a couple of our readers who gave me some recommends…keep the queer films coming!
A film by Andrew Haigh
For those who caught Haigh’s previous film Greek Pete at film festival his latest garnered the 2011 SXSW Emerging Visions Audience Award. Turning its lens on two men who meet in a club and what starts off as a possible one-night stand becomes more meaningful and emotionally resonant.
A film by Dee Rees
Heavy buzz at Sundance 2011 along with being grabbed by Focus Features, this feature film debut from the lovely and sweet Rees and producer Nekisa Cooper, is an emotionally true and enriching story about a young, black Brooklyn lesbian trying to find her voice.
LEAVE IT ON THE DANCE FLOOR
A film by Sheldon Larry
An independent musical set in the contemporary “ball” culture of Los Angeles written by Glenn Gaylord (Eating Out: All You Can Eat). Think Pepper LeBeija, Paris Duprée, Willi Ninja, the classic “Paris is Burning,” Madonna’s popular song “Vogue” and Malcolm McClaren’s “Deep In Vogue.” Okay…this queen is squealing with glee!
A film by Brian Pelletie
The hilarious Rebekah Kochan (Eating Out 1-3) stars as a lesbian burlesque dancer on the run from the mob! I’m guessing a way lot better than Connie & Carla and more like Sister Act. Will someone give Kochan her role on a major sitcom already??? Now on DVD.
A film by J.T. Tepnapa
Sci-fi drama about a failed filmmaker, who has an opportunity to change the past, in hopes of a promising future. Starring Charlie David (Dante’s Cove), Brent Corrigan, and Richard Harmon.
