I'm Too Old for This: Sundance, Day One - The Queer Lounge and The Programmers' Speakeasy

Hello darlings,

Well, this is already a fantastic Sundance Film Festival.  It seems like the crop of films this year are just spectacular, and with the thinning of the crowds, it's easier to navigate around town.

At the Queer Lounge with Derek Curl who runs production and development at queer distributor TLA, the company that released Latter Days, Another Gay Movie and Adam & Steve.

Jennifer Morris, the Executive Director at Frameline:  The San Francisco LGBT International Film Festival - the largest LGBT film festival in the world and Carol Coombes - programmer from the prestigeous Philadelphia International LGBT Film Festival, which is run by TLA.

Kathy Wolfe and Maria Lynn from Wolfe Video - the lesbian owned and operated lgbt distribution company that has been around for 24 years and this year released ITTY BITTY TITTY COMMITTEE, THE NEW TWENTY and BUTCH JAMIE.

With Roberta Munroe, who is a former Sundance Film Festival programmer whose new book HOW NOT TO MAKE A SHORT FILM is being released THIS WEEK nationally.

I'm quoted in Roberta's book in the section on "What Does a Producer Do?"

Michelle Ehlen, star and director of Butch Jamie - at the Glaad Thank God It's Friday party at the Queer Lounge on the second floor balcony overlooking Main Street.

I caught a gaggle of fabulous lesbians hitting Main Street.

I fell in love with my condo mate when he immediately ran out and bought a fancy smelly candle for our condo.  SO GAY.  So perfect!

The firepit outside our condo at around 1:30 am last night.
