One of the more interesting developments of my year in film has been an invitation to join the board of QCinema: Fort Worth Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival. Back around the time of the Lone Star fest I started talking to Todd Camp about helping out with QCinema, this lead to The Q10 Project and joining the board. Thus far the experience has been great. Todd does most of the heavy lifting for the festival being the Artistic Director and Programmer (and lots of other things!) It's been a lot of fun and all involved are great to work with. Even though it is a fairly small festival there is still lots to learn about the inner workings of a film festival. As a filmmaker I've discovered many different ways of thinking about my own festival experiences.

Today the QCinema Fest begins in full. In it's tenth year the festival expands to 10 days! I hope some of you local folks will come out and show support. Todd has put together a great line up of really well made and engaging films. Go here to look at the full festival schedule: http://www.qcinema.org/minisite/schedules/all.html.

You'll notice on Sunday June 1 at 7:30pm Yen's film Ciao is playing. If you didn't get a chance to see it in Dallas come see what everyone's talking about. It's been getting rave reviews all over the place.

All ten episodes of The Q10 Project are finished. Please check them out and let me know what you think!


In other news there's some amazing things happening with St. Nick but I'll let David announce those when he's ready for it.
