What may be the last film festival (in the US anyway) took Donnie to Atlanta for OUT ON FILM
Two friends who used to live in Richmond (see below) came to share the experience, plus a former RVA couple who moved to Atlanta showed up to share the memories.
“gloriously profane and wonderfully engaging”
While we were there, I got another great review from DAILY FILM FIX (7/10).

Meanwhile, Dirtwoman made her first visit to South Africa (unaccompanied by me) at the Durban Gay & Lesbian Film Festival on September 28.
We endured the 100+ degree days to expose Dirtwoman to his first LGBTQ festival:
Cinema Diverse in Palm Springs.
While on the West Coast, I recorded this podcast:

It’s off to Atlanta for OUT ON FILM. If you’ve got friends in Georgia, let ’em know it’s playing 11am, Saturday, 9/28 at Midtown Art Cinema.
Film Threat was THE magazine for indie films from 1985 to 1996, when it became the go-to website for movie buffs.
Bobby Lepire’s review was just published and he rated it 8/10!
In festival news, Spider Mites was accepted in the Durban Gay & Lesbian Film Festival in South Africa!
The first international showing for Dirtwoman.
I won’t be traveling to Africa, but head out next week to expose Dirtwoman to Palm Springs and Atlanta! (Click on the links to read more about the festivals and share with your friends in these cities)
In September, we’ll be spreading Spider Mites’ big gay love on both coasts!
First stop is CINEMA DIVERSE, the Palm Springs LGBTQ Film Festival on Saturday, 9/21. I’ll be in Palm Spring for the screening and a big afterparty! If you have any friends there, let ’em know (or even if they live in LA…it’s not that far).
The festival circuit will come to a close in November (a year after the 1st show in Charlottesville). Then, I plan to play a limited run in Richmond, while ramping up a streaming outlet and DVD options.
