SR Film Festival update –and milestone

The 8th SR Socially Relevant Film Festival NY has posted its schedule –an impressive slate of great films, panels and discussions.  To find out more and to buy tickets, please go to:  https://srff.sparqfest.live/en/index.html

We’re also happy to mark a milestone for our film.  To date, OUT LOUD has been accepted at 20 film festivals around the world!  We’ve updated our show poster with our laurels.  Fingers crossed there will be a few more to add later this year.

OUT LOUD DEBUT IN THE BIG APPLE

2021! A new year, a new president and vice president, and new hope! All the best to everyone out there! In this spirit, we were honored to learn that Out Loud is an official selection of the 8th SR Socially Relevant Film Festival, in New York, March 15-21, 2021. This festival is dedicated to the idea that “through raised awareness, expanded knowledge about diverse cultures, and the human condition as a whole, it is possible to create a better world free of violence, hate, and crime.” The slate of selections will be made public later in February and we’ll keep you posted.

TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE 2020

Founded in 1999, Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is observed around the world on November 20 to honor the memory of the transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence. Tragically, for trans people across the globe, 2020 was even deadlier than 2019, with 6% more transgender lives lost to violence.  The fight for trans rights and equality goes on, as critical as ever.

We were honored to have OUT LOUD featured in two events commemorating this year’s TDOR on opposite sides of the globe.  As mentioned in our last post, OUT LOUD headlined at the inaugural Tampa Bay Transgender Film Festival Nov. 20-22.  Our film was also featured by Queer Screen in Sydney, Australia in a special virtual screening that was made available across Australia Nov. 20-22.

INAUGURAL TAMPA BAY TRANSGENDER FILM FEST

We are thrilled and honored that OUT LOUD will be one of the featured films at the first Tampa Bay Transgender Film Festival, held in partnership with St Pete Pride.  The festival will kick off on Friday, Nov. 20, the Transgender Day of Remembrance, and will run through Nov. 22.   The vision for the Tampa Bay Transgender Film Festival “is to create a space grounded in and centered around the transgender community, support those in film who support our community, and share these films with our allies.”

All the films in the festival will be available for screening from noon on Nov. 2o through Nov. 22, at:  https://transfilmfest.eventive.org/films.  There are 300 FREE tickets per movie on a first come first served basis. (From 301-500 tickets there is a $1 fee)

OUT LOUD is streaming 11/13 thru 11/19 at the OutSouth Queer Film Festival, based in Durham, North Carolina. OutSouth is the second largest LGBTQ+ film festival in the Southeast USA.

OUT LOUD’S LATEST LAURELS

OUT LOUD recently screened (and streamed) as an official selection at two additional virtual festivals.  We had our New Mexico premiere at the 18th annual Way Out West Film Fest, based in Albuquerque.  The festival program included this note about our film:  “This thrilling, inspirational musical diary is sure to leave you smiling, even if you need a box of Kleenex within reach.

We were also honored to be included in Reel Affirmations, Washington DC’s International LGBT Film Festival.

DESPERADO

We’re pleased to announce that OUT LOUD is streaming through October 25 at the 2020 Desperado LGBT Film Festival in Phoenix — available only to folks in Arizona. Get your tickets here:  https://desperadofilmfestival.eventive.org/welcome

OUT LOUD AT THE DRIVE IN

For the past two decades, the Woodstock Museum Film Festival in upstate New York (yes, near the site of that 1969 rock festival) has been held over Memorial Day weekend.  Each year the festival has a theme and  a slate of independent films is chosen accordingly.  This year’s theme is “IMPACT” and we’re delighted and honored that festival officials chose OUT LOUD as an official selection.  The pandemic has made indoor screenings impossible but the festival will go on, a month later than planned, in two alternate venues.  Films will be projected at a local drive-in on Oct. 12, 13, 14.  (OUT LOUD is slated on the 12th at 10 pm.)  Then, on the following three Friday’s, Oct. 16, 23, 30, all the films will be screened on Woodstock Access TV in Woodstock, NY.  For further details:  https://facebook.com/events/s/woodstock-museum-drive-in-film/648913122678756/?ti=ic

Peace and love!

OUT LOUD IN THE ROCKIES

The Crested Butte Film Festival normally showcases “world-class narrative, documentary features and shorts, action adventure and kids programming”  in the spectacular setting of a Colorado Rocky Mountain ski resort –but this year, due to COVID, the festival went all virtual, with one hundred films streamed September 25 – October 4 anywhere in the world.  We were thrilled to have OUT LOUD included as an official selection!
