our art and at tne same time provide a pool of talent, energy, and equipment to help each other. It is obvious that vie, the gay community, have a real interest in our culture, and it is up to all of us to reach out to each other. Any one seeking information or vJishing to join Persistence of Vision, may leave a message with David at 626-9815. New energy at any level is most welcome.

IN THE ROOM

An introduction by way of explanation: Motion picture- a sequence of photos or drawings projected on a screen ,in such rapid succession that they create the optical illusion(due to the persistence of vision)of moving persons, objects. Vision- act of seeing, a mental image, imagination. persrstence- the continuance of an effect after the removal of its cause(persistence of vision causes visual impressions to con­ tinue upon the retina for a brief time.)

With that announcement, audiences were welcomed to the first Festival on February 9, 1 977. A lot has changed in the last 25 years-the Festival is no longer free, and now ALL smok­ ing is prohibited (not just tobacc o ! ) . Less than 20 short films were screened at that first, one­ night Festival at 32 Page Street, and this year finds us with over 350 films and videos that will be screened at five different theatres as part of the eleven-day 25th Anniversary Festival. We kick off year 25 with two very special premieres: Susan Seidelman's

Gaudi Afternoon,

a very San Francisco story set in Barcelona; and straight from Channel Four in London, the lat­ est thing in queer TV, "Metrosexuality" by Rikki Beadle-Blair. Our choice as the perfect way to end any Gay Day as well as our 25th Anniversary is Julie Davis' delightful romantic come­ dy

All Over the Guy. In between, you will find an incredibly diverse collection of films. and

videos from 29 different countries. And if just watching movies isn't enough, check out Persistent Vision, a landmark queer media conference that will be held during this year's Festival. The Festival has grown exponentially every year of its existence, and this year is no excep­ tion. To accommodate the increasing number of films and our growing audienc es, we have expanded the Festival by adding two new venues, the 750-seat Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater and the 900-seat Herbst Theatre, enlarging our capacity by 22% ! There's more infor­ mation about all of our venues on pages 75-76 . This year we are also introducing online ticket ordering-just hop online, check out the Festival line-up, order your tickets, and they will be mailed right to you! So, take a look at what we've gathered for you for 200 1 and get ready as we celebrate a quarter century of queer cinema.

Frameline and the San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Fesnval

In 1 977, when Danny Nicoletta, Marc Huestis, and a handful of others rented a projector and pinned up a sheet in an old community center on Page Street to screen a bunch of home movies, they had no idea that they were launching an annual event that would eventually shape queer sensibilities and promote queer visibility on a global scale. Twenty-five years later, the San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival, which had its humble origins in that first makeshift screening, proudly celebrates its Silver Anniversary. The Festival is now the signature event of Frameline, the nation's leading non-profit media arts organization dedicated to the distribution, promotion, funding, and exhibition of lesbian and gay film and video. The Festival draws an annual audience of 75,000 and has a budget of over $1 million. It has a history of premiering and promoting the work of filmmakers like Gus Van Zant, Marlon Riggs, Pedro Almodovar, and Christine Vachon. The Festival hosts a lavish Opening Night gala as well as other fabulous events to encourage interaction among filmmak足 ers, industry insiders, and film lovers. This year, the Festival also includes Persistent Vision, an international conference that examines the past, present, and future of queer media. Such success hardly seemed pre-ordained a quarter century ago, when the sexual libera足 tion counterculture spawned the Festival. Huestis, best known for Sex Is... ( 1 993), remembers the Festival founders as "a ragtag band of hippie fags"-artists like himself who soaked up gay liberation idealism when they dropped their film off at Harvey Milk's Castro Street camera store, where Nicoletta (now a respected fine arts photographer), tended the counter. Milk's campaign to become the first openly gay elected official was well undelway when the idea for a festival took shape among the group of young filmmakers who frequented his camera store. In its early years, the Festival had a decidedly homegrown ambience, tending to feature short films made by the organizers themselves. Their work reflected contemporary gay con足 cerns like Anita Bryant's campaign to push back gay rights protections in Florida. Some films explored artistic and experiment I themes, while others simply celebliated gay sexuality. One early offering- Changes, a trans exual filmmaker's exploration of feminism, personal identi足 ty, and state bureaucracy-seems strikingly contemporary in retrospeot.

SAN FRANC I SCO I NTERNATI ONA L LESBI AN & G AY FILM FESTIVA L


The B i rth of Framel ine The Festival's founders soon recognized the need for a n organization to help sustain the fledg­ ling gay film scene. A core group led by David Waggoner, Ric Mears, and Wayne Smolen established Persistence of Vision, a loosely run collective dedicated to building support for local gay film artists. The group changed its name to Frameline in 1979. That same year a film student named Michael Lumpkin answered a call for volunteers to work on the Festival. Though he didn't know it at the time, Lumpkin had found his life's work, and would be associated with Frameline and the Festival for most of the next twenty years. His enthusiasm gave the organization a jolt of new energy. When he became Festival Director in 19 80, Lumpkin aspired to broaden the content of previous programming. was the first to feature work produced outside the United States, to intercultural issues, and to include work by lesbians. Avant-garde filmm remembers arriving at her Oakland studio one morning to find L doorstep, eager to solicit one of her films. Lumpkin also helped increa Festival by bringing out-of-town directors in to speak about their work,

securing ft1nd�g

from national grant organizations. The fifth Festival was significantly bigger than any of the previous ones. Making the Castro Theatre the Festival's main venue was the most obvious change. The Castro had opened its doors in 1922 and in its prime had been a grand movie palace, but by the mid-1970s it had fallen into disrepair. Mel Novikoff (the art film exhibitor who had hooked San Franciscans on Bergman and Fellini at his historic Surf Theatre in the early '60s), sensed a golden opportuni­ ty in restoring the Castro to a semblance of its former glory. His timing was just right. The migration of baby-boomers transformed the demographics of the formerly Irish working-class Castro neigh�orhood. The Castto Theatre was renovated and quicldy became San Francisco's premiere repertory film palace. Although the Castro Theatre had become a fixture of local queer film culture by the late '70s, long-time Castro programmer Bob Hawk notes that "moving the Festival there required a continued on page 122...

found impact here in San Francisco than the recipients of this year's Award. The San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival is proud to present the 200 1 Frameline Award to the group that did the most to make it all possible: this Festival's founders. These idealistic youngsters had no way of knowing it at the time, but they were starting one of the biggest annual arts events in San Francisco. They were also playing a key role in a world­ wide trend that would help to change the face of lesbian and gay media. In the last 25 years, this Festival has become the inspiration and model for over a hundred other lesbian and gay fes­ tivals around the world, providing a vast network of venues for the exhibition of works by queer artists. And it all started because a few fag filnmlakers hanging out at Harvey Milk's camera store needed some place-any place-to show their films. "It was a real Mickey and Judy affair," founder Marc Huestis remembers today. "We got a space, rented a projector, threw up a sheet, and said 'Hey, kids! We're gonna put on a show!'" Marc and his co-founders were part of a "hippie fag" scene that thrived in the city in the mid­ seventies, when self-expression was everything and money was beside the point. Like most of the aspiring gay filmmakers of the day, he took his films to Milk's store for processing. Dan Nicoletta and David Waggoner, two more of the Festival's founders, worked there, and a gay film scene began to form around the small Castro Street storefront. Other members of the group included Ric Mears, Greg Gonzales, Berne Boyle, T. K. Perkins, Ken Ward, Stephen Iadereste, Allen McClain, Bob Hansen, Michael Ruiz, Paul Nichols, Billy Miggins, Wayne Smolen, and Larry Larry. These comrades in film hit the streets early in 1 977 to publicize a festival of gay Super-8 films to be held on February 9 at the com­ munity center at 32 Page Street. That night, two hundred people crowded into a room meant for one hundred twenty-five, and a hundred more were turned away at the door. A second expand­ ed and equally well-attended show followed March 13 at the Pride Center at 3 3 0 Grove Street. We've been doing it every year, ever since. And even though the founders may hardly rec­ ognize their tiny event in today's sprawling citywide Festival, they deserve credit for starting it all. So, on the occasion of the Festival's 25th Anniversary, we honor those who had the vision back in 1977 to organize a "Gay Film Festival," and ended up launching a whole new era in les­ bian, gay, bisexual, and transgender media arts . •

I The San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival marks an important milestone this year with its 25th Ann iversary edition . But Frameline isn't the only member of the city's media arts scene celebrating a birthday in 200 1 . This year's Festival includes a number of spe­ cial programs celebrating the work of two of our favorite sister organizations, the Film Arts Foundation and Bay Area Video Coalition; a grande dame of the alternative cinema scene, the San Francisco Cinematheque; and a relative youngster that is having a national impact on the programming on PB S, the Independent Television Service.

filmarts FOUNDATION

The Film Arts Foundation

(FAF ) and Bay Area Video Coalition (BAVC) were born, along

with the Festival, in 1 977. Both groups have gone on to play important roles in the develop­ ment of an independent film and video community in Northern California by supporting film and video makers in the production of their work. Most (if not all) of the locally produced works screened over the years at the Festival have relied on the resources of these two indis­ pensable San Francisco institutions. The 200 1 Festival will present a sample of the vast num­

ber of queer works funded by FAF grant programs in Light Struck: 25 Years of FAF. A selec­ tion of the hundreds of outstanding; queer video works that have gone through BAVC over the last quarter century will screen in Homo Retro-BAVC.

San Francisco Cinematheque hit the city's art scene in 1 96 1 , and almost immediately SAN FRANCISCO

CINEMATHEQUE

became one of the most respected screening venues of experimental film and video in the world. To celebrate its 40th Anniversary, the Festival is showcasing four programs of experi­ mental 8mm work by queer filmmakers in Do It Yourself: An Overview of Queer 8mm Film. These 8mm works represent the roots of queer film and this Festival, which almost exclusive­ ly screened 8mm films during its first three years.

[iJtvs independent television service

Independent Television Service (IT VS) was created ten years ago to bring independently produced programs that take creative risks, advance important issues, and represent rarely-seen points of view to PB S. Three-hundred broadcasts later, its success rate is nothing short of phe­ nomenal. Ground-breaking ITVS-funded programs like BlackIs... BlackAin't and Coming Out

Under Fire have dared to change minds, open hearts, inspire dialogue, and take viewers beyond the limits of their own lives. To celebrate the 1 0th Anniversary of San Francisco-based ITVS, the Festival will present four retrospective programs and two new ITVS-funded documentaries:

Scout's Honor and Hope Along the Wind: The Life and Times of Harry Hay.

VISION

The Persistent Vision conference honors the organizers of the first gay film festival in San Francisco. While they no more expected to birth a queer film festival that would be attended by over 75 ,000 people than the few drag queens who rioted outside a New York bar expected to birth a radical gay liberation movement, the work of these pioneers remains with us today. What were they thinking when they chose the name Persistence of Vision? It speaks of incredible foresight: "persistence" means to continue with a project despite all obstacles; and "vision," not only means physical sight, but also refers to prophecy or an ideal conceived in the imagination and made rea l. It's a safe bet to suggest that Persistence of Vision knew what their goals were: to create a space in which gays could see themselves reflected in culture, and to make sure that it endured over time. While these objectives might have been clear at the time, it is unlikely that anyone in the group could have foreseen how far we would travel in 25 years. And while the obstacles we face are different and our sights have shifted, we know that we must still actively organize to chart a course into the future. Hence, we have created Persistent Vision-a conference that will look at our past, analyze our present, and help determine our future. "Things move fa st," stated editors John Greyson, Pratibha Parmar, and Martha Gever in

Queer Looks, their challenging and comprehensive · 1 993 book about avant-garde queer film and video. From the liberation movement of the '60s to street kiss-ins in the '80s, from public AIDS funerals to Log-Cabin Republicans to the Transgender movement, the queer movement has forged a direct course of increased visibility. While lesbians and gays were always 'in' Hollywood, in the early y�ars we were portrayed only in covert or stereot)'Jpical ways . While this provided heaps of material for scholars to analyze-Oh, the glories of spotting the queer in the subtext of a film!-by the '80s there wa s an urgency, a need to be more widely repre­ sented. Increasingly, we began to make our own film and video about our lives: we needed to see ourselves and our lives on screen, not watch some watered-down plot with characters that required us to "spot the dyke" or "find the faggot. " Home movies precipitated media activism and the queer avant-garde film and video productions of the '80s. Lesbian and gay film festi­ va ls popped up in one city after the next, film submissions came from the world over, and these growing festiva ls created audiences for more work. This movement gave birth in the '90s to a body of work for which B. Ruby Rich coined the term "New Queer Cinema." Hollywood, never known as a great risk-taker, fina lly began to catch up, taking its cues from some financially successful independent films (if there's a buck to be made ... ), and queers began to pop up reg­ ularly in movies and on TV

Persistent Vision will look at how the programming of festivals either contributes and/or detracts from a queer avant-garde, and how these will influence the future of queer media. Panels will investi­ gate everything from the impact of pop-culture TV and movies that are riddled with homosex­ ual subtext, to how experimental media and documentary films with a revolutionary edge may continue to be funded and broadcast. Presentations about our film and video history will chart some of our past media productions, while others will point to vital and systemic issues of acceptability, access, and representation in the creation of new queer media. Workshops will range from modes of digital distribution to pitching sessions for up-and-coming directors, and participants will engage in discussions on everything from the failures and successes of festi­ vals to include diverse images of queerness, to new trends in Asian cinema and c�ntinuing gra�s roots media activism. Don't miss out on being a part of history, learning more about what you watch, and maybe even setting the stage for the "new, new thing" in queer cinema.

Gaudi Afternoon Thursday June 14 7:3 0 pm Film Screening and Gala Castro $75 Mem/$100 Gen (GAUDI14)

Our desperate seeking might just be over with this year's Opening Night film, Gaudi Afternoon, directed by none other than the woman who first brought Madonna to the screen. This. year, director Susan Seidelman (Desperately Seeking Susan) has a film set an ocean away from the streets of New York. Shot in Barcelona with a star-studded cast including the formidable Judy Davis, Oscar winning Marcia Gay Harden, Lili Taylor, and Juliette Lewis, Gaudi Afternoon also features one of Spain's finest comedic actors Maria Barranco ( Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down). Seidelman based the film on Barbara Wilson's mystery novel and calls it a "gender bend­ ing detective story about alternative families." Davis describes it as a "comedy about displaced people. " It is all of this and much, much more. With a diverse set of characters, Seidelman brings us a film that makes us look at ourselves in whole new ways. Davis plays the edgy Cassandra, an itinerant translator who describes home as where she plugs in her laptop. We meet her as she struggles with the translation of a novel about a moth­ er and a daughter. Distracted by her own relationship demons, her late rent, and the cacopho­ ny from her landlady Carmen's (Maria Barranco) household, Cassandra is at a crossroads. Enter Frankie Stevens (Marcia Gay Harden) in an outfit from the gods. Frankie tries to enlist the cynical translator to play private eye. The femme fatale explains that it will be an easy and lucrative gig. In need of cash, Cassandra agrees. As she tries to find Frankie's disappeared husband, she quickly discovers that what appears to be real "just ain't necessalily so. " The seductive April (Juliette Lewis) might not be a new age angel and Ben (the most fabulous Lili Taylor) might not be Ben, but a butch dyke. And, a drag cabaret might be the headquarters of an elaborate kidnapping scheme. As she wanders amid the Gothic architecture that looms over the modern streets of Gaudi's Barcelona, Cassandra is up to her eyes in intrigue and soon gets embroiled in a drama that offers her more than she had ever expected. -Erica Marcus Gaudi Afternoon

"Metrosexuality, " then you 're already there!

Move over "Will & Grace." Get out of the way "Ellen. " We've seen the future of queer televi­ sion and it's "Metrosexuality"-the fabulous new TV series from England's Channel Four that receives its U.S. premiere screening at our Gala Opening Night at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater. With a breezy style that gives "swish pan" a whole new meaning, Wliter/director/producerl star Rikki Beadle-�lair (Stonewall) skips through this entertaining story like a lightning-fast hiphop DJ sampling the latest tracks from Moby, Beck, or Daft Punk (while the fashion reminds you of a 200 1 version of the artist again known as Prince). As the characters in "Metrosexuality" hurtle through the technicolor streets of London's trendy Notting Hill Gate with the urgent velocity of a late-night cell phone call to the number in a personal ad, just keep­ ing up will leave you whip-lashed with laughter and begging for more. Beadle-Blair heads one of the most divertingly diverse casts ever as Max, a gay-divorcee dad with bleached blond dreadlocks doing his best to cope with life as a single queer. Things aren't made any easier by sharing j oint custody of a cute young straight son with a handsome ex-husband-especially when the son is determined to get his dads back together no matter what it takes. Throw in the travails of a lesbian sister and sister-in-law, plus the escapades of your son's two gay best mates (one of whom has a crush on Dad) and their poly-amorous friends, and you've got a world where sexuality is a slippery slope and the 2 1 st Century fami­ ly is in full swing. Sound easy for Dad? It's not. But it's a lot of fun for the rest of us in this frank, funky, streetwise comedy-drama that's like nothing you've ever seen. Don't be surprised if an Americanized version shows up on your cable TV in a couple of seasons, but it will never equal the energy of this queerer than "Queer As Folk" British original. "Metrosexuality" dir Rikki Beadle-Blair 200 1 UK 72 min video The first three half-hour episodes ofthis six part series will screen Opening Night. The $75. 00 ticket price for the evening will include complimentary tickets to a screening of the last three episodes at the Center for the Arts Theater on June 1 6th, 4 pm, plus admission to the Festival's Gala Opening Night party next door to the theatre at the Center for the Arts Forum and Galleries.

Adventures of Felix Tuesday June 19 9:3 0 pm Castro $10 Mem/$15 Gen (FELIX19) French directing duo Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau proved that they could mine new gold out of old gemes with their AIDS musical Jeanne and the Peliect Guy. Now, with Adventures ofFelix, they put a new twist on a story line that is as old as Homer and come· up with a film that is both an enj oyably accessible gay movie, and a sophisticated work of cinema art. From its whimsical opening moments, with handsome French-Arab ferryman Felix riding his bicycle along the docks of Dieppe, to its final scenes of a touching .reunion on another dock in Marseille, Ducastel and Martineau maintain an easy control over their film's pacing, tone, and style. With their deft directorial touch, each of

Felix's deceptively ordinary characters

makes an impression on the audience in a very unique way. And no one makes a bigger impres­ sion, on his fellow characters or the audience, than Felix himself. From the moment newly unemployed Felix puts on his backpack, kisses his handsome boyfriend goodbye, and heads off down the back roads of France in search of the father he never knew, people begin to take him into their hearts. As Felix, Sami Bouaj ila gives a sweet, sexy performance that makes it easy to see why everyone who meets this happy-go-lucky wanderer wants to feed him, bed him, or drag him behind some bushes. Each of his fellow travelers needs something from Felix, each has some­ thing to give, and each has something to teach him. It isn't long before the charms of budding springtime, the beautiful French landscape, and his charming new "relatives " start to lure Felix down some diverting cul-de-sacs. Fortunately for us, Ducastel and Martineau give Felix all the time he needs to follow each detour wherever it leads him. Together, they turn their young hero's search for his father into a discovery of an extended "family" he never knew he had. Felix may reach his goal in the end, or he may not. But one thing is certain, the audience will wish this Gallic

Sullivan 's Travels, which comes across like a queer collaboration between

Preston Sturges and Franc;ois Truffaut, would go on forever. Sponsored by

The Confusion of Genders (La Confusion des Genres) Sunday June 24 4: 00 pm Castro $5 Mem/$6 Gen (CONFU24)

o

Give in to the temptations of Babette? Live with Christophe? Marry Laurence? Let go of it all and follow his fantasies of Marc? Choices, decisions, commitments-these are what Alain, the seductive fortyish junior partner in a small Parisian law firm, fears and with remarkable ingenuity, avoids. Ambiguity and existential doubt, and confusion and chaos form the milieu of our pro­ tagonist's messy but not unhappy life. The Confusion of Genders moves quickly with witty, improvisational dialogue and fast repartee as complication builds upon complication and an unexpected turn of fate presents Alain with hav­ ing to make an ultimate decision: Laurence, the senior paliner of the firm, discovers that she is pregnant with his child. Despite being practition­ ers of a profession that applies clear definitions and reaches final judgments, both Alain and Laurence find themselves comically befuddled by this predicament. Meanwhile, Babette, Christophe, and Marc await, all sexually involved with Alain or on the verge thereof. No lingering in doubt for them, they are young, unreflective, and willing to go wherever passion dictates. -Nicole Guillemet

Canadian cuisine tempts the taste bud borders of back-bacon, maple syrup, and poutine in these scrumptious shorts curated by Jeff Crawford and the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre. In Suck, nail-biting gives new meaning to finger food, while a pissed-off princess makes a date with the fridge in Chow Down. The table is set with some tasty treats in Brealifast With Gus, and succulent secrets go Bare. Butch cooks it up in Baking With Butch, Episode #2, and in the ani­ mated Bon Bon it's all made out oof candy. A delivery boy discovers his sexuality in Take-Out while In The City a man explains how his break­ ups always happen in restaurants.

In 1 977, this Festival debuted in the midst of an explosion of gay culture in San Francisco. In life styles, the arts, and the pursuit of sex, gay men were literally stretching their muscles and spreading their wings. The members of the Gay Men's Theatre Collective were right in the middle of it too. That year, they poured all their experi­ ences as "gay men" into a single performance piece, and Crimes Against Nature was bom. Hailed as a hit during its long theatrical run, Crimes Against Nature survives today as a mov­ ing time capsule of its noes-gay era, thanks to director Edward Dundas. Dundas weaves his camera into the play's action to capture all of its emotion, humor, ritual, and pathos. An inspiring courage informs the sometimes humorous, some­ times painful testimony of the men, as they explore the unsettling region between intellectu­ al and emotional transformation. Exceptional performances convey the suspense involved in n-eading such dangerous ground_ Oh, so '70s ! Now, to commemorate the experimental and innovative spirit of '77, the SFILGFF presents Dundas' one-of-a-kind record of a once-in-a-life­ time event.

The unrequited desire of Reflex and the psycho足 logical and emotional ravages of AIDS in An Individual Desires Solution are the sober sub足 jects of this collection of films. Miles is a silent and romantic tribute to a long-time lover. Age 12 is a complex study of a relationship between two young girls. Cirque du Sida combines images of Gay Pride and Cirque du Soleil in order to show the colorful struggle of lesbians and gays in a hostile environment. Blue Movie #6 is a found footage riff on male sexual fantasy transformed into lesbian love. -Stephen Kent Jusick

Some say we are "different from others. " This collection of shorts provides various ways of relating to and talking about queer sexuality, from a simple and humorous taxonomy of gay sex in A to Z, through inverted mother-daughter relations in Martina IS Playhouse, to the faerie rit足 uals of Tattu, shot in the unrecognizable wilds of New York City. Clown #1 is a menacing picture of deviance, while the selection from Pink Narcissus is a celebration of excess, fetish, and classic gay male types from the late '60s. -Stephen Kent Jusick Martina 's Playhouse dir

Everything In Between -Gay Asian Shorts

Family Pack

Fassbinder ' s Women

(Une petite fete)

Thursday June 21 8:00 pm Victoria $7.50 Mem/$8.50 Gen (ASIAN21)

Friday June 22 8: 15 pm Castro $7.50 Mem/$8. 50 Gen (FPACK22)

This collection of shorts from Hong Kong and North Amelica presents a multiplicity of view­ points about being Asian and gay. The program opens with a first gay kiss: fantasizing about it, talking about it, and doing it in Field Guide. Minus is an intricate hand-processed stream of animation. The insatiable appetite of an Asian male bottom is explored in Forever Bottom, and a young boy ends up in a love triangle with his best friend in Port. Richard Fung cre�tes an elo­ quent and visually stunning work about living close to illness in Sea in the Blood, and a blind man and a street kid find themselves thrown together in Safe Journey. In Everything in Between, Rosa discovers the meaning of love, family, and friendship in Los Angeles.

Chris Vander Stappen (screenwriter of Ma Vie En Rose) leaps into the director's chair to create a lively yet bittersweet tale of familial misunder­ standings. It's 1 969 and Sacha returns to Belgium, intent on coming out to her family. But she kind of forgot to tell them that she dropped out of medical school long ago, so before any conversa­ tions about being a lesbian can happen, there's this business about being a doctor. The bubble seems too big to burst, and besides, no one stops chattering long enough to have a meaningful dia­ logue. It's amidst this muddle that Sacha slowly discovers the people she has never really noticed: a sister to whom Sacha's return is a reminder of the shadow she forever lives in; a father with a small tailoring business on the verge of financial extinction; and a mother whose allusions to breast cancer and the failings of her own dreams turn her fac;ade of motherly grace into high­ strung chaos. Both sweet and richly entertaining, Family Pack goes beyond the adage "You can't go home again," to remind us that, though our fam­ ilies don't seem to understand us at all, we might just be the ones that don't quite lmderstand them. -Christian Bruno

Memories of the shagging shack, wrecked Stingrays, a suicidal heroine on a window sill, and sex in the sauna-Fassbinder's Women reveals the legendary bad boy of the New German Cinema, Rainer Werner Fassbinder (QuereUe, Lili Marleen, Ali: Fear Eats The Soul), through the eyes of the people who knew him best. Rosa von Praunheim coaxes astonishingly candid recollections from the women (and a few men to whom he gave nicknames like Sonja) who lit up his films, including the electric Hanna Schygulla, Irm Herman, Brigitte Mira, and Jeanne Moreau. Described as "the great pup­ peteer," Fassbinder emerges as a complicated and compelling figure. He married Ingrid Caven and spent the wedding night with a man. He opened all of Irm Herman's letters. He got a sadistic thrill out of reducing his actresses to tears. Yet they found it hard to stay away from him. Was it the lure of the films that he built around them, or as blonde bombshell Barbara Valentin puts it "the sex appeal of small fat men"? Fassbinder's Women is a fascinating look at a Svengali-like figure and his short blazing life-dead at 37 of a drug overdose with over 40 films to his name. '-Sandip Roy Fassbinder's Women

Wilen Shaodung, her fiance, arrives from America, she excitedly drags him to the Chinese Kun opera "Lin Chung Flees by Night." They are both captivated by the exquisite voice of the lead singer, who is so immersed in his role that he has adopted the character's name and entire identity. Ing'er, Shaodung, and Lin Chung begin to spend time together, exploring a shared passion for music, and eventually find themselves in an ambiguous relationship. Their triangle is further complicated by the troupe master's pressure on Lin Chung to encourage the attentions of the opera buff gang­ ster, Huang.

Forbidden Fruit Saturday June 23 1: 00 pm Victoria $5 Meml$6 Gen (FRUIT23) In our struggles here in the U. S. for civil liberties, it is easy to forget that the battle for lesbian a�d gay rights is an international one. These three outstanding "films remind us of this reality. The president of Zimbabwe calls lesbians and gays "dogs and pigs "-to be queer is highly taboo.

Forbidden Fruit by Zimbabwean director Sue Maluwa-Bruce tells the story of two women lovers, Nongoma and Tsitsi. When their secret affair is discovered, Nongoma runs away from their small village. Tsitsi's family believes an evil spirit possesses her. A couple of years later, the two women meet again.

Tina Machida in Zimbabwe is a portrait of an African youth activist who despite countless death threats continues to fight for lesbian and gay human rights. It is a highly inspirational story of a remarkably hopeful woman who calls for an end to the silence and takes steps towards real change. From India,

Petals is a very un-Bollywood

film about the struggles two young lesbians face to be together. The whistle of a h'ain will never be the same.

Harry' has been at center stage of gay pride for more than half a century. His story pro­ vides a chronicle of the gay rights movement, as well as a history of California in the 20th Century. Harry Hay joined the Communist Party in the early 1 93 0s and participated in the San Francisco General Strike of 1 934. In the mid1 950s

This momentous film features poignant inter­ views with Harry and many of the surviving original members of this historic and brave group of gay men.

His story is the story of our era, and for our landmark 25th Anniversary Festival, Frameline is pleased to present a truly remarkable documen­ tary about a truly remarkable man.

Danielle replies, " She reminds me of you," thus hinting at the presence of long-subI

merged feelings. This charming film, set in the �esert of

tI�S of co�mg out to family. Danielle struggles wIth her sIster Kelly's unwillingness to believe that Danielle's coming out is anything but an attempt to gain attention. Meanwhile Faygan, a playwright in the midst of launching a new play, turns to her friend Jamie for support. Over wine and conversation, Jaime and Faygan begin their own intimate friendship, vowing to keep the rela­ tionship complication-free. Against a backdrop of theater, the two pairs of lovers endure mount­ ing drama: Danielle, contending with her lover's �x-girlfriend, and Faygan, who is coming to real­ Ize that she may have become intimate with the wrong friend.

Get ready for the second installment of Balang . With Butch and almost a dozen other send-ups of lesbian living. We've got chick sleuths in Butter + Pinches, bespectacled gals in I Make Passes At Girls Who Wear Glasses, biscuit making butches in Goin I South, intergalactic movie stars in Beautiful Girl, a bug attack in Itchy Ya-Ya, con­ niving secretaries in Mujeres Calladas, and med­ dling gossips in Chutzpah!.

The brilliant Lili Taylor (I Shot Andy Warhol, The Addiction) and the unforgettable Courtney Love (People vs. Larry Flint) team up to play two dis­ satisfied New Jersey housewives in the newest feature from director Bob Gosse (Niagra, Niagra). Taylor plays Julie an "as American as apple pie" mom who harbors a secret obsession for theoretical physics and reads Scientific American voraciously. Although she never fin­ ished high school, she decides to make a break with her past and follow her dreams. Against the wishes of her husband she convinces her best friend Claire to take. a computer class with her and get their G.E.Ds. Spalding Gray plays an inspirational professor who nurtures her desire for change and discovers her genius. In the process, she and Claire, a steakhouse waitress, leave their husbands and move in together. It is not long before Julie confesses her long-held romantic feelings for Claire, who is at first quite upset but soon admits the feeling is mutual. As their relationship deepens their growing alien­ ation from their friends and neighbors begins to take its toll. A Shooting Gallery release, Julie Johnson is about being who you are expected to be, wanting something else, and going for it.

Sometimes it's all in the cards. Especially when a sister is reading those cards to another sister. And especially when the sisters . . . and brothers are as fine and sexy as in this bold bi-coming out story. It all begins when Kali discovers that her girl­ friend Crystal is playing another lover on the side and the tarot tells Kali that she "must release everythirig that is comfortable and familiar." The lesbian in Kali does not even consider the bi­ word until Reese gets her attention. A real charmer with a body from the gods, Reese offers the trust, honesty, and "long term relationship" that evaded her with her now ex-girlfriend Crystal. But falling for a man means changing how she thinks about herself and when Crystal reappears, the old chemistry between the two women is still there. Kali 's Vibe brings us stories of African­ American women and men that are seldom seen on the screen. And with a score composed by Me'Shell Ndegeocello, the New York locations groove to a special beat. This is Carpenter's first feature (she was Spike Lee's long-time script supervisor) and she is a definite talent to watch for in the future. -Cypress Green Kali's Vibe

Pharaoh thinks he can't catch AIDS because he's 1 00% top (well, make that 95% . . . ) Teddy is a churchgoer engaged to a woman who has no idea he sleeps with men. Paris is a compulsive fliit.

Wednesday June 20 6:3 0 pm Herbst $7. 50 Mem/$8. 50 Gen (SONIA20) Kiss of the Spider Woman opened in 1 985 to rave reviews and an unprecedented run for an inde­ pendent feature. However, after its Oscar-win­ ning success, it virtually disappeared £i'om the­ atres for over ten years. Until now. Based on the novel by Manuel Puig, Kiss of

the Spider Woman tells the story of two dissimi­ lar cellmates who find camaraderie: Molina (William Hurt), imprisoned on morals charges, who dramatically reenacts escapist films; and the withdrawn Valentin (the late Raul Julia), a self­ disciplined intellectual leftist. As Valentin gets absorbed into Molina's fantasies, Molina com­ mits himself to Valentin's causes, creating a fra­ ternal bond that surprises them both. Sonia Braga stars in three showcase roles: Valentin's lost love, the star of Molina's fantasies, and the Spider Woman who weaves them all together.

The landmark makes for a convenient meeting place-as when two horny guys connect on the Internet and want to hook up . . . or an older woman decides to pre­ view the high-priced hustler she's found in the want ads . . . or a male virgin, desperate to get laid before his wedding, plans to meet -a hooker but goes off with a man instead. When all these subplots (and more) get hopelessly tangled up, the intersecting story lines result in a lighthearted comic romance that mixes gay and straight with almost utopian parity. (Did we mention that Km.

In white tie and tails pounding on his Steinway with its trademark candelabra, "Lee" welcomes the stu­ dio audience to this sappy tribute to his favorite person, his mother. Oozing a false sincerity simultaneously campy and creepy, the smiling showman sings "I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old dad," and plays Dvorak's "Songs my Mother Taught Me, " until suddenly there onstage is his beaming mom, alongside violinist brother George, also the show's musical director. The "documentary film of a complete inter­ view" produced by the Psychological Cinema Register of Pennsylvania State College is an unedited intake session of a nerdy young man who immediately identifies his problems as caused by his homosexuality.

Friday June 22 1 0: 00 pm Roxie $7. 50 Mem/$8. 50 Gen (MMMME22) When your mother thinks the ship has been hit by an Iraqi missile and screams at you to grab her vanity case before evacuating, you know there is no escape-divadom is in your genes. M! Mom, Madonna & Me (not necessarily in that order) is a romp through Atif Siddiqi's life turned per­ formance art: as a teenager in Pakistan channel­ ing Madonna; as a fashion designer in Los Angeles 'sending his designs to her management; and as a self-styled provocateur in Montreal. Sometimes em-aging fundamentalists in Pakistan by posing as a woman on a fashion magazine cover, while at others engaged in telephone sex complete with cheesy porn film dialogue, Atif sashays down the catwalk of his life in a "Blonde Ambition" tour all of his own--except his wig is silky black. And if one diva is not enough-Swati Khurana

and Leith Gill Murgai's Julpari ( Waterfaily in Urdu) stars Nina Chiffon as the activista drag queen, who can match Atif eyelash for eyelash, as she struts down New York streets, sings Hindi film songs in the subway, and offers 'opinions on everything from Islam to immigration.

Iris and Sandra's relationship is in a rut. Sandra is a successful interior architect who's hardly ever home and Iris is a florist with a romantic nature and plenty of time on her hands. If they don't spice things up fast, their eight-year relationship may be doomed. So, what better way to breathe life back into it than by having a baby? While Sandra has her doubts, Iris goes ahead and looks for a sperm donor. When the irresistible Spaniard, Antonio, finds himself in her flower shop one day, she knows she's found the perfect man for the job. The only problem is that Sandra and Antonio work together and unbe­ knownst to Iris, things are starting to get a little steamy between the two of them. Sandra becomes pregnant and soon enough life really begins to tangle up. Oh Baby, A Baby is a mar­ velous and cheeky romantic comedy that puts all three characters in the most compromising posi­ tions and pushes social convention to the limit. In Do You Take This Man ? local filmmaker Pamela Busch has created a campy lesbian take­ off of the wedding scene from The Graduate. -Erin Cullerton

If you've lost interest in TV "reality" shows because they're just not real enough-or gay enough-then consider this scenario: six gay boys take a road trip from L.A. to the Nevada desert to witness the annual Burning Man festi­ val, where anything goes. There's Jimmy, the Swedish Olympic diver; Jason, the sensitive porn star; Billy, the sexy Jewish intellectual; Charles, the beautiful guy everyone wants and no one can have; Damon, the tortured musician who's not as pretty as the rest; and Lance, our reflective, little­ seen narrator. Sporting a mobile home (<\ la Priscilla, Queen of the Desert), the boys travel in style­ but all they can think about is sex. The simmer­ ing erotic tension finally bubbles over when the boys reach Burning Man, where rampant nudity, drugs, and artistic anarchy get added to the mix. What begins as a canned situation contrived for the camera takes on a fascinating life of its own as reality, inevitably, happens. -Steven Saylor

OUT: The Making of a Revolutionary

1 983 was the culmination of a lifetime of radical protest for Laura Whitehorn, and 14 years in fed­ eral penitentiary have only solidified her stance as a committed American revolutionary. Growing up in a socialist-leaning Jewish household, wit­ nessing McCarthyism and the Rosenberg tlials, and coming of age alongside the Vietnam protest movement, Laura Whitehorn is a woman too out­ raged at injustice to be afraid. Through inter­ views and archival footage, we not only learn of her achievements (including founding Boston's first women's center), but also her struggles as an out lesbian in a predominantly homophobic rev­ olutionary Left. More than simply a life and times story, O UT The Making of a Revolutionary is a powerful indictment against the incarceration system, where still today over 1 00 political prisoners remain imprisoned for speaking out against the U S .

From Scribe to Screen

Remember M e

Monday June 18 6:30 pm Herbst $7. 50 Mem/$8. 50 Gen (DlVAS18) Join us for an erudite evening with some of our favorite queer novelists and directors who will discuss the art of adaptation. Part of the magic of cinema is its wonderful ability to combine images and stories, be they experimental or nar­ rative. Directors and novelists are master story­ tellers, and often' when they bring their talents ' together, a new form appears. Moved by the words and characters of a novel or short story, directors are compelled to tell that story in images-creating, at times, an entirely new story, a product of a collaborative imaginary that pres­ ' ents a complex view of some aspect of our lives. Hear a panel of our most admired directors and novelists tell the tales of their struggle for collab­ oration and independence, as they come together to debate the pleasures and dangers of adaptation in this special program.

As Oona Stone, poetry's once-promising young talent, crosses into her thirties without a word printed in years, she tries to Zelda-and-Scott her days away with gay pal Jack in vapid style-with plenty of drink, of course, and glamorous threads lifted from the costume museum at which she works. But her sister. Madison's breast cancer rears its ugly head again, and Oona reluctantly agrees to take the reins of the tiring feminist lit­ erary magazine Madison edits. In a bold move to breathe some life into its pages (and sales), Oona publishes the stalwart mag's first male-authored piece in its long history. In the process, she changes the course of her relationships with Madison and Jack forever, while conversely re­ igniting a passion for words she thought had gone. Not merely 'a sly satire on the lesbian and gay literary scene, Shoplifting Chanel also takes a sharp stab at the medical community's reluc­ tance to attend to women's health issues. Rebel Rebel suggests a sure-fire method for reinvigorating a sunken woman's life: have a dis­ tant cousin's purple-lipsticked, black-leather-clad teen daughter, dropped into her custody. -Christian Bruno

Experience an odyssey of light and sound as these filmmakers voyage to the edges of creativ­ ity. Dear Joan is a hand-processed letter to that heroine of butch dyke-ness, Joan of Arc. A kinet­ ic, frenetic stream of thought bubbles through a woman's mind in Ephemera. A dirty, salty sailor's ghost tells a haunting story in Siren and a woman looks back to her childhood when her father was in prison in The Blessing. Meep Meep! is a micro ' short dyke drama and Scar is an exploration of our internal desire. !Jis a beautiful meditation on loss. Two friends separated by death go on a road trip in The Sisters Lumiere.

While vacationing in Greece in 1 992, James Dowell and John Kolomvakis found a pile of books on the side of the road. In a list of authors including Nabokov, Mailer, and Genet, they also discovered an inscribed book of poems by Charles Hemi Ford. This event kicks off the chronicling of an artist's life whose influence has spanned the last 70 years. Born and raised in the South, Charles Hemi Ford put his stamp on the world of Ijterature when he founded Blues, a lit­ erary magazine which published works by emerging writers. One such writer, Parker Tyler, prompted Charles to join him in the lap of coun­ terculture, Greenwich Village. In 1 932, they co­ authored the semi-autobiographical novel The Young and the Evil. Radical for its non-judgmen­ tal view of gay life, the book was banned in the U. S. Ford was as connected to the surrealists of the '40s as he was to the pop artists of the '60s. Through the use of dramatizations and inter­ views with Ford and his contemporaries includ­ ing Allen Ginsberg, Paul Bowles, and Dorothea Tanning, Sleep in a Nest of Flames presents a portrait of one of our country's most influential and enduring artists. -Dennis Conroy

The Castro Theatre The Castro Theatre opened its doors on June 23, 1 922. The $3 00,000 movie palace was origi. nally called the "New Castro," to distinguish it from the 400-seat Castro Theatre down the street; however, it quickly became simply "The Castro" as the old Castro was converted into the Bon

Omi Vatiety 5 & Dime (now Cliffs Hardware). In 1 976 Mel Novikoff took over the lease, shift­ ing the programming fi.-om third run to art/revival, and applying for landmark status for the build­

ing (granted in 1 977--official S.F. Landmark # 1 00). Novikoff renovated the interior, improved the projection and sound, installed the Mighty Wurlitzer, and developed what was "the finest neighborhood theatre ever built in San Francisco" into an internationally-known movie house. In 1 988, Blumenfeld Theaters took over and continue screening films in the Novikofftradition.

The Herbst Theatre The years following the S.F. 1 906 earthquake were filled with grandiose plans for rebuilding the city. Perhaps the best-realized of these is the S.F. War Memorial and PerfOlming Arts Center which houses the Herbst Theatre. The Opera and Symphony Associations needed a permanent residence, and in 1 9 3 1 ground was broken. Facing City Hall, the War Memorial Opera House and Veterans Building are separated by the Memorial Court, creating a special atmosphere unmatched in San Francisco. In 1 9 80 Davies Symphony Hall opened and completed the PerfOlming Arts Center. The S.F. War Memorial and Performing Arts Center has great historical significance as the birthplace of the United Nations, having hosted the UN Conference on

International Organization and concluding with the signing of the UN Chatier on the stage of the Herbst Theatre on June 26, 1 945.

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater Opened in 1 993, Verba Buena Center for the Arts was built by the S.F. Redevelopment Agency using funds from private development in the Verba Bueria Gardens district. The Center's Theater, designed by James Polshek, was inspired by the energy Polshek perceived in S.F.'s perfOlming arts community. The design provides a proscenium theatre inside, and features an exterior of alu­ minum panels that respond to the subtle and changing qualities of San Francisco light. Polshek's work speaks for an inclusive and humanizing architecture that embodies his belief that "archi­ tecture must make a social contribution." Adventurous, interdisciplinary programming in visu­ al and performing arts, film/video, and education makes the Center for the Arts a unique resource for the Bay Area community.

Victoria Theatre The ornate and stately Victoria Theatre was built in 1 908 as a vaudeville house. Originally called

displace live on-stage entertainment, the character of the Victoria began to change. In the '30s, it became a motion picture house offering dishware door prizes to entice moviegoers. In the '50s, community. In the ' 60s, under the name New Follies, it became a burlesque house until it closed in 1 976, and remained dOlmant for 2 years. Thanks to the imagination and sheer physical work of two people, Robert and Anita Correa, the theatre has been completely refurbished from top to bottom and restored to its original intent and grandeur. It is now a city landmark.

The Roxie Cinema The Roxie Cinema is the oldest continuously operating movie house in San Francisco. It opened in 1 9 1 3 as the "Poppy," was known as the "Rex" in the ' 20s, and became the "Roxie" in the early ' 30s. The Roxie operated as a neighborhood rep house, with programming not unlike today. In

1 976, after its 2-year "porno-period," Robert Evans got together with Dick Gaikowski to rein­ vent the Roxie as a repetiory calendar house, specializing in offbeat documentaries, cutting edge world cinema, and anything outre. Since 1 984, the management team of Bill Banning, Elliot Levine, and Rick Norris has maintained the basic programming philosophy established by Robert Evans, who passed away in 1 990. Many local festivals call the Roxie home, including the SFILGFF which began hosting screenings there in 1 979.

Sugar High Glitter City is a futuristic and gritty sexcapade that ushers the come-back of the (never existent) '70s dykesexploitation genre. Sugar is outlawed and cane-addicted dykes stop at nothing to get it, even selling their own sweaty bodies. Glitter City's underworld is loaded with sugar pimps and candy 'hos. Accompanied by a pumping soundtrack, this sexy and diverse cast takes us on a belly crawl to an urban, glam, and candy-coated fuck-fest. Strano and Rednour star in the film, along with B ay Area starlets Michelle Tea and Simone aka Teresa. The program begins with a sugary walk thru candyland in the animat­ ed short Bon Bon. -Darlene Weide Bon Bon dir Allyson Mitchell 200 1 Canada 3 min

Wednesday June 20 8 : 00 pm Roxie $ 7. 50 Mem/$8. 50 Gen (THEME20) The brutal murder of her father in 1 9 68 not only left a hole in filmmaker Martha Swetzoffs life, but also many questions as to who he really was. His figure became shrouded in mystery when she discovered that he was gay and the murder "gay­ related. " Confronting her own grief in the deeply personal Theme: Murder, Swetzoff uncovers scores of journals and letters, and contacts for­ mer friends of her father to assemble a portrait of a man curiously obsessed with death, who may have led a rich, gay life in '50s and '60s Boston­ a man who had not only secrets, but an entirely separate life. In The Most Un knowable Thing, director Mary Patierno's original intention of document­ ing her gay brother's courageous battle with AIDS takes a detour when he suddenly marries his female chiropractor. Life's twists and turns are in no short supply in this poignant stranger­ than-fiction account of a remarkable man. Through his story, presented with intimate inter­ views and footage of sickness, health, marriage, and tragedy, we begin to realize that the most unknowable thing j ust might be life itself. -Christian Bruno

Tuesday June 19 1 0: 15 pm Roxie $7. 50 Mem/$8.50 Gen (IWISHI9) They all love handsome young Bruno (Ervin Nagy)-his pretty blond girlfriend Mari (Martina Kovacs), a talented gymnast; Mari's brother Ringo (Roland Raba), a skin-headed hustler who also does drag; and the older married man (Imre Csuja) to whom Bruno keeps running for help and comfort. But who does Bruno love? Even he doesn't seem to know. Rather than take a hard look at his life, he'd rather pretend that he's Batman and escape into fantasies of aerial der­ ring-do. But back on solid ground, things are pretty grim. The graphic scene in which Bruno skins a rabbit sets the tone. Hustling with Ringo (their escapade with a client into toilet plungers and vacuum tubes is like nothing you've seen before), Bruno runs afoul of the law (his forced strip­ tease for a pair of lascivious women cops is equally bizarre). A stolen key unlocks a sequence of events that leads to tragic consequences for everyone in Bruno's world. -Steven Saylor This I Wish and Nothing More (Nincsell nekem vagyam semmij dir Komel Mundruczo 1 999 Hungary

Zeki goes to Germany for the funeral only to find out that Mahmut has ieft behind an eleven-year-old daughter, Senay. He is forced to take care of her, since he is the only one who knows who her mother is-Cicek, the belly dancer-and where to look for her. Zeki and Senay wander through Germany, the Netherlands, and France in search ofthe mys­ terious Cicek. After a highly antagonistic start and a string of wild adventures, the unlikely pair begin to learn how to get along with one another.

Trembling Before G-d

Undetectable

Unknown Friend (Fremde Freundin)

Sneak Preview Saturday June 23 4:00 pm Roxie $5 Mem/$6 Gen (DETEC23)

Sunday June 1 7 2:00 pm Roxie $5 Mem/$6 Gen (TREMB1 7) Director Sandi Simcha DuBowski orchestrates a film of unparalleled scope with Trembling Before

G-d. This feature-length documentary focuses on the stories of Hasidic and Orthodox Jews who "come out" as gays and lesbians, and as a result must reconcile their sexual orientation with the rigid discipline of their tradition. As they strug­ gle with a way to negotiate their sexuality within a religious community, they are ultimately forced to question how they can pursue tI:uth and faith in their lives. Trembling Before G-d gives us an opportunity to understand the way modern per­ ceptions of sexuality have come to challenge entrenched religious views which condemn homosexual lifestyles and have forced many gay people into isolation. As the film unfolds, we meet intolerant rabbis, narrow-minded family members, and abandoned gays and lesbians who are all struggling to solve an inscrutable dilem­ ma: how it is possible to remain true to age-old traditions and values and simultaneously be true to

oneself.

leap of faith. " The Castro's 1 45 0-seat capacity was five times the size of the Roxie Cinema, where the Festival had played the year before, and could swal­ low the combined audiences of all previous festivals. Rising to the challenge, Lumpkin produced a festival designed to pack the house-not just for one night as in earlier years, but for a whole week. The Festival opened with the world pre­ miere of

Greetings ' From Washington, D. c., a documentary about the first

March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights in 1 979. It also screened the classic 1 93 1 lesbian film

Maedchen in Uniform, and a weekend of experimen­

tal films at the Roxie. The indisp�table highlight of the Festival, however, was a sold-out lecture and clip show by film historian Vito Russo, whose

Closet had recently arrived in Bay Area bookstores.

Frameline �omes of Age Frameline and the Festival turned an important comer in 1 98 1 . Frameline's dis­ tribution operations began that year, and the addition of Opening Night festivi­ ties pointed towards the Festival's future as a red-letter event on San Francisco's cultural calendar. Frameline achieved another landmark in 1 98 6 with its 1 0th Festival. After a visit to the massive, pace-setting Berlin Film Festival, Lumpkin was inspired to take Frameline and the Festival to new levels of professionalism. One of the key additions was launching the annual Frameline Award for the year's out­ standing contribution to queer filmmaking-recipients have included actor Divine, director Pratibha Parmar, and producers. Christine Vachon and Marcus Hu. In 1 986, another notable event revolutionized Frameline and the Festival­ the "lesbian riot" at the Roxie on June 2 5 . Discontent had simmered for years ilmong some women, who felt Frameline paid insufficient attention to lesbian concerns. A film by Canadian-Japanese lesbian Midi Onodera,

Ten Cents A

Dance (Parallax), became the focus for these long-standing dissatisfactions when it closed a lesbian shorts program one muggy Wednesday evening. During a portion of the film depicting two men having sex in a public restroom, some disgruntled women streame.

� down the

aisles to protest the representation of

male sexuality in a lesbian program, while others noisily disrupted the screen­ ing. Before the night ended, the angry crowd had verbally raked the Festival staff over the coals. Lingering resentments prompted Frameline to sponsor a forum at the Wom�n's Building several months later to address concerns about B. Ruby Rich, Pratibha Parmar, & Mary Wings a t the 1993 Festival

lesbian represent�tion. Just as Onodera's film catalyzed a protest, the lesbian riot catalyzed Frameline to make a commitment to increase the visibility of women in the Festival and to promote greater ethnic diversity. Michael Lumpkin recalls the night of the riot: "It was awful at the time, but it was very important because of the changes it brought, especially in establishing goals for gender parity in pro­ gramming. " Maria Kellet, who had served as Festival Assistant for several years, became a more visible spokesperson for the organization in the late '80s, as did

SAN FRAN C I S C O I NT E R NATI O NAL LES B I AN & GAY FI LM FESTIVA L


others who had been involved with Frameline for many years-most notably Phyllis Zusman and Susan Passino (both of whom served as Board President), Chris Olson, Sue Mitchell, Elizabeth Whipple, Karen Larsen, Kim Scala, Liz Rigali, and Mary Wings . Screening committees were restructured to include more women and people of color. By the late '80s, Frameline began hiring guest curators to lend their expertise to expand the diversity of the programming. Annett Forster became Frameline's first guest curator for women's program­ ming in 1 99 1 . Frameline also set up a completion fund designed to enable more women and people of color to realize their visions on the screen (Rose Troche and Guinevere Turner's breakthrough comedy Go Fish benefited from a Completion Fund grant in 1 992) .

Frameline hired women for its highest permanent staff po sitions. Linda Falin became Executive Director in 1 98 8 . Jill Jacobs held the position in 1 993, and Tess Martin came on board in late 1 994. (Peter Fowler, a member of Frameline's board for nearly a decade, served a stint as Acting Executive Director in 1 993 -94.)

Frameline Enters the '90s When Tom d i Maria stepped into the Executive Director position i n 1 990 to replace Farin, he made diversity his highest priority. Di Maria attributes his commitment to multicultural representation to his years with Urvashi Vaid at the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. "Urvashi taught me what multicultural­ ism really meant," he acknowledges. "When I came to Frameline, I looked at achieving multicultural diversity not as a burden, but as an exciting goal to attain. " Karl Knapper, Frameline's first African-American board member, and later Board President, expressed his vision of the Festival in these words : "I think les­ bian and gay film festivals play a vital cultural role. They create a place to be lesbian and gay and they provide validating representations . I wish I'd had a les­ bian and gay film festival to go to when I was a kid in El Paso. I wish there was a lesbian and gay film festival in every hometown in America. "

to Pratibha Parmar

Frameline has played a maj or role in making such wishes come true. Programmers from most of the 1 00 other queer film festivals worldwide tum to Frameline for ideas and information. Frameline Distlibution extends this func­ tion by making over 200 titles available to festivals, community groups, schools, and universities. The Festival has become a vital meeting place for queer film enthusiasts from all over the world. Central-American director Gabriel Gonzales Vega likened being in San Francisco for the Festival to "being on another plan­ et. At home my lover and I can scarcely go to public events together. I come here to be inspired about what is possible. " Michael Lumpkin l e ft Frameline i n 1 99 1 . His departure proved only tem­ p orary, but it spurred the hiling of new perso nnel. Mark Finch of the British Film Institute became Festival Dire ctor in 1 992 . Jenni Olson was hil'ed first as

Mark Finch & Michael Lumpkin at the 1990 Festival


a film curator, then as Festival Co-Director, and eventually as the director of Frameline's short-lived Archives and Resource Center. Other new hires included Distribution staff Nancy Fishman and Desi del Valle, Development Director Amy Shoenborn, and Festival Program Associates Boone Nguyen and Jennifer Monis.

Co in with Crisis Late in 1 994, most outsiders would have seen Frameline as an organization on the brink of a wildly successful future, ideally positioned to benefit from the recent explosion of interest in the "new queer cinema." Frameline's budget increased geomet}:ically as money flowed in from private and corporate sources, doubling every year during the first half of the '90s. It ballooned from just over $ 1 00,000 in 1 9 9 1 to about $800,000 in 1 994. Festival attendance grew similar­ ly, from 1 9,600 in 1 99 1 to more than 55 ,000 in 1 994. Frameline accomplished this growth in §pite of a bruising battle with the National Endowment for the Arts in 1 992. In the wake of the Robert Mapplethorpe controversy, the NEA suspended grants that it had made in previous years. Frameline actually emerged from the fray in a str'onger finimcial position than ever, as private and corporate support skyrocketed in response to the homophobic funding cutback. Unfortunately, rapid growth led to serious financial difficulties. When Tess Martin-former president of the Los Angeles Lesbian and Gay Film Festival and a senior manager at the American Film Institute-signed on as Executive Director in October, 1 994, she lmew she would be called upon to restore Frameline's fiscal health. She and the Board of Directors met in emergency ses­ sion in November and took the drastic steps of laying off several employees and cutting back on the size of the next festival. The crisis deepened immeasurably on January 1 4, 1 9 95, with the sudden tr'agic death of Festival Director Mark Finch. A memorial service was held at the Castr·o Theatr'e on February 26, 19 95, and the 1 9th Festival was dedicated to his memory. A special fund was established in his name to help support the work of emerging queer filmmakers. Only 33 at the time of his death, Finch was respect­ ed by colleagues and idolized by young queer filmmakers for his unflagging support of new work. He left a distinct imprint on Frameline, the Festival, and the wider queer film com.n:1unity.

The Last Five Years Michael Lumpkin returned to Frameline's helm late in 1 995 to continue the organization's dedication to groundbreaking work. He and Festival Co-D irector Jennifer Morris opened the 20th Festival with Cheryl Dunye's Watermelon

Woman, the first feature film by an African-American lesbian, which premiered at the Festival the same day it was being lambasted by the religious fundamen­ talists on the floor of the U. S . Congress. Jennifer Morris has promoted a wide range of transsexual and transgender films at the Festival, including 1 997's Closing Night feature, Different for Girls . Other recent Festival successes include Deepa Mehta's Fire, a portrait of the relationship between two sexually oppressed middle-class Indian women; the employment discrimination docu­ mentary Out at Work, Frameline Distribution's top-grossing film; Dakan, the first gay feature film to come out of West Aftica ; The Brandon Teena Story by Susan Muska and Greta Olafsdottir, which paved the way for Hilary Swank's Oscar-winning portrayal of Brandon Teena in Boys Don 't Cry; the original hit British television series "Queer As Folk," which spawned an American knock­ off; and Paragraph 1 75, a wrenching documentary about the treatment of homo­ sexuals in Germany during the Holocaust. The world has changed a lot since Marc Huestis and his friends put on a show twenty-five years ago-and Frameline and the Festival have changed along with it. What started as a single evening's worth of films will culminate J.

this year with 350 individual films and videos. For the first time Opening Night

helped nourish artistic creativity in the '70s have been replaced with one of the most expensive real estate markets in the nation, but Frameline is taking the steps that will help secure its future into the 2 1 st Century. Year-round staffing has increased from five in 1 995 to twelve this year. The organization has proven resilient enough to survive both the arts funding crisis and the mainstreaming of queer film, and it continues to play a vital role in shaping global discourses on sexuality, gender, and artistic expression. However, for twenty-five years, Frameline has succeeded in the most important way of all: the show, without fail, has gone on .
