Our friends at Nitehawk Cinema, easily the best food oriented movie theater in the country, hosted a spectacular screening of queer short films last week. The films ranged in length and subject but all were produced and directed by up and coming queer filmmakers. The event featured a Q&A moderated by Nick McCarthy, the programing and operations manager at New Fest, NYC's sleekest LGBT film and media arts organization. It was a very gay night.
Some of our favorites from the screening:
Written by Quinn Marcus and directed by Drew Van Steenbergen, A Lack of Dating in Brooklyn follows the dating life of a discontent Brooklyn lesbian. You WILL see a piece yourself in this.
Dreamy, 90's drenched down tempo drama Sometimes, Forever directed by major newcomer Ashley George kind of stole the show.
Dave Solomon's twisty and moody Photo Op was certainly the strangest film of the evening and featured a surprisingly candid and striking performance from Queer as Folk's Randy Harrison, if you can believe it!
