This special auction features 3 previous OUTFEST WINNERS that have wowed the crowd in recent years. Auction includes signed posters and postcards by the filmmakers presented in a tasteful basket (and who doesn't love a tasteful basket, we ask you?!). The films are:
1. "DIRTY MAGAZINES" - Top 5 Favorite Shorts from 2009 that had audiences howling for more, this crowd-pleaser was a world-wide hit! An over the top comedy with heart, "Dirty" is based in the '80s and focuses on a mother/son relationship after the mom finds gay porn under her son's bed the morning of his 16th birthday. Breakout performance by Suzan Brittan as the mother. Dir.: Jay J. Levy (www.DirtyMagazinesTheMovie.com)
2. "AVAILABLE MEN" - Winner of the Outfest 2006 Outstanding Narrative Short award and 16 others Best Of awards at LGBT film festivals, this tale of mistaken identity at a high-scale bar in La-La Land is an example of intelligent comedic gay cinema at its finest. Fast-paced & unexpected, it will make al your last blind date or business meeting pale in comparison! Dir.: David Dean Botrell; Features: Jack Plotnick ("Girls Will Be Girls") (http://daviddeanbottrell.blogspot.com)
3. "GET HAPPY" - Billed as a "Coming of Age Musical Extravaganza," "Get Happy" was the Winner of Outstanding Documentary Short Film at Outfest 2009 as well as numerous other festivals. It chronicles the life of Mark Payne doing impeccable impersonations as a child back in Texas and his evolution into "doing Liza better than Liza!" An entertaining and triumphant tale of staying true to who you are. Dir: Mark Payne (www.gethappythemovie.com)
Experience quality gay cinema and bid generously for Outfest as they champion breakout filmmakers in the LGBT community. Thanks & Enjoy!
