jim carl bob nocek senior director president/ceo On behalf of the Carolina Theatre of Durham, Inc., it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 16th annual North Carolina Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. Whether you’re a Durhamite who is lucky enough to be familiar with all that our city and the Carolina Theatre offer, or a visitor joining us for the first time, I sincerely hope that your NCGLFF experience is engaging and enjoyable. We’re extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished over 16 years. NCGLFF is not only one of Durham’s signature events, but one of the oldest and largest in the southeast. This year’s festival includes 87 films, and as always we’ve sought to capture the breadth of the gay experience through a variety of stories, some funny, some tragic, and some that are just intended to entertain. Although we come together under the banner of gay cinema for this festival, our lives and our experiences are broadly different. It is my hope that somewhere in the range of films we’ve chosen this year, that something resonates with you. The festival, as I’ve said since arriving in Durham two years ago, is about more than just film. It’s about community. That’s why last year we introduced our Plaza Party, which was a resounding success and gave festivalgoers a chance to socialize and have fun without leaving the festival grounds. We’re bringing it back this year, and we’ve made it even better. As you’ll notice throughout the Carolina Theatre, this year’s NCGLFF comes with the challenge of construction. The City of Durham’s $1.8 million renovation project that began in June won’t be complete until the fall, but we couldn’t let a year go by without NCGLFF, so we’re making it work. There may be some holes in the walls, or some unfinished finishing touches, not to mention three stories of scaffolding in Fletcher Hall. We hope you’ll excuse the mess and come back in the fall to see the all new Carolina Theatre. It is also with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to announce our ambitious plans for the future of the North Carolina Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. We have begun to plan an even bigger NCGLFF beginning in 2012, with many more days of films, parties, and events that will make this the premiere LGBT film festival in the Southeast and an even greater draw of visitors to Durham. I thank you for your loyal support, and I hope you have a fabulous festival!

I have always loved going to the movies. It says something that I can’t recall my childhood without envisioning trips to the Texas Theatre, a grand, old-fashioned single-screen movie house, and the only place to see movies in my hometown of Sweetwater. If you’ve seen Stand By Me or any of those films where the narrator reminisces about their upbringing in small-town America, you know where I’m going here. It was not a show palace, the Texas Theatre; just an aging building, probably built in the 1950s, but if you were a boy under thirteen in the mid-70s, it was the best place in town to spend Saturday afternoon. One of my earliest movie-going memories happened in 1976. I was seven years old.  It had been a great year for movies, but there was one movie that made no sense to me, whatsoever. It was called Ode to Billy Joe, and was based on a country song whose lyrics I’d memorized by playing my 45rpm record over and over. My mother would commandeer my record player and spin her own favorite song, “Wildfire”, which was about a girl who froze to death while searching for her pony during a blizzard. “What the song didn’t tell you,” the film ads cooed, “the movie will.” I was hooked.  Billy Joe marked the first time in my life that I saw a PG-rated movie without an adult in tow, but I felt only bitter disappointment. Billy Joe explained absolutely nothing.     “What does it mean?” I asked my mother the next morning. “Homosexual?” Billy Joe took the plunge after telling his girlfriend he was gay, whatever that meant. “It’s when a man likes other men,” my mother explained, slowly. She should have stopped there, but no; she instead used a metaphor. “What would happen if the Six Million Dollar Man lived with Spider-Man instead of the Bionic Woman?” My mother actually asked this, I swear. It’s gospel. My mother had been right. “Wildfire” was a better song than “Ode to Billy Joe”. Jumping off a bridge because you liked guys was indeed dumber than freezing to death while shouting a horse’s name in a snowstorm.    Okay, what’s the point of this story? For starters, thank goodness it’s not 1976 anymore and we’ve progressed to a point in queer cinema where stories of gays and lesbians aren’t always necessarily wrought with melodrama and angst. Let’s also take a moment to consider that today’s younger generation stands a much better chance of knowing and befriending someone who’s gay than did my own generation. I truly hope that events like the North Carolina Gay and Lesbian Film Festival have helped play a small role in promoting that acceptance. There’s still much more work to be done and---if we’ve programmed good, smart movies---perhaps someone in the audience this weekend will feel inspired to take a stand against prejudice, misinformation, and uniformity.  Perhaps they’ll even make a movie? Yes, there are reasons I program movies rather than make them. Good ones, my boss tells me. All my best,

AWAY ABOVE THE CHIMNEY TOPS

BITE MARKS

MEN’S SHORTS PROGRAM (US/New Zealand/Australia, 82 min) Eighty-something Tristan Arthur Jones used to write about fictional war heroes, and fell in love with every single one. He always hoped he’d meet one for real, and with the arrival of Colonel Robert Leadley at his rest home, it seems like his dreams have come true in The Colonel’s Outing. As two strangers who met at a party now have a long rambling conversation into the night, their secrets are revealed in Morning Before. In Foot Soldier, a door to door salesman gets lost and is helped back on the right path by the hands of a small town. In the dark drama, Fucked, an evening of celebration forever changes the life of a young British man. When you can’t sexually satisfy the person you love, do you call it quits in Cakes and Sand? Viewer’s Guide: Nudity and graphic sexual content.

(US, 84 min) Bite Marks is a delightful vampire buddy comedy with a witty script and a cute cast. Brewster’s tryst with his brother’s wife is interrupted by a call from the truck dispatch. His brother has not shown up for work, and if Brewster doesn’t cover his route, his sibling will be fired. So Brewster heads out to deliver a shipment of coffins to a funeral home several states over. Trying not to fall asleep at the wheel, he picks up hitchhikers Cary and Vogel, a gay couple whose cross-country trip is a last-ditch effort to mend their failing relationship. Brewster takes an instant dislike to Cary but becomes uncomfortable when he finds himself somewhat attracted to Vogel. His GPS guidance system misleads them into an abandoned junkyard, where the truck’s axle breaks. When night falls, they learn that the coffins aren’t exactly empty. There are vampires…hungry ones! Vogel, Cary, and Brewster barricade themselves in the truck’s cab, hoping to fend off the vampires until dawn. Viewer’s Guide: Graphic violence.

AU PAIR, KANSAS

BUFFERING

(US, 95 min) Oddmund is a bumbling Norwegian soccer player who arrives on a small-town Kansas bison farm to work as an au pair. And the inevitable question arises: is he gay? Oddmund’s new employer is Helen Hazelton (Traci Lords), an uptight widow, who’s been seeing her husband’s ghost— and talking with him. Oddmund’s charges are a sullen fifteen year old, Atticus, and a shy nine year old, Beau. To draw the boys out of their shells, he gathers together a motley soccer team. With encouragement from her dreamy dead husband, Charlie, Helen is trying to move on. As details of Charlie’s life filter through, it’s clear that he tried to hide a secret gay life, but he wasn’t very successful.

(UK, 80 min) From the makers of Shank and Release comes this side-splitting new comedy about sex, money and the benefits of a fast broadband connection. Seb and Aaron are a pretty, twenty-something British gay couple in modern economic times who find themselves partying like it’s still 1999 one day… and discover that they’ve overspent on credit cards and are in financial ruin the next morning! How to make some fast cash? How about selling your gay sex tapes on-line? One small problem: Aaron neglects to tell Seb that he’s secretly filming them! Now they’re “getting paid off by getting laid” and things are running great…until their friend Jern suggests adding a third to really kick start those Internet sales! Viewer’s Guide: Nudity and graphic sexual content.

AUGUST

CIRCUMSTANCE

(US, 100 min) August is a magnificent journey that touches on a familiar note for many: “What if he comes back?” Emotions run high when Jonathan receives a message that his ex, Troy, is back in town after living in Barcelona for years.

But things aren’t so simple, especially since Jonathan is happily partnered with his new love, Raul. –What develops is a tangled web of tough choices that each character has to make for love.

(Iran, 107 min) Winner of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award: Dramatic category! In a vibrant contemporary Tehran, two beautiful teenage girls struggle for their personal freedom.

When Anna’s long term boyfriend breaks her heart, she tries several ways to get over it in It Was Like That. Jamie falls in love with the GPS in her parent’s car in No Direction. Becoming a lesbian isn’t as easy as Angie thought it would be. She’s been fantasizing about girls, so after her boyfriend turns out to be a jerk, she joins her roommate at a gay bar…but Girl Scouting doesn’t turn out quite the way she imagined.

(US, 95 min) Marshall is a cocky young man who, after seven years with his boyfriend, Gabe, is beginning to feel the itch. Attempting to shake up his dull routine, Marshall searches for a new life online. Here he discovers a mysterious application – eCUPID – that promises to find its user true love. From the moment Marshall downloads eCUPID, the application provides Marshall with a line-up of sexy, available guys, each promising to fulfill all of his fantasies. But too much of a good thing may not be a good thing.

Come Back to Me introduces us to a young lesbian couple that finds their relationship turned inside out by internalized homophobia and torn apart by societal pressures. Looking for Cassidy and Dawn? Chances are, they’re down at the pub in the small suburb they’ve never left. They’re together all the time, and the co-dependence is starting to chafe in 30 is the New 12.

(US, 85 min) Adam wants to launch his TV and movie career, but seems further than ever from his dream. His friend, Nick, hooks him up with an office job at a porn production company. Despite several offers, including from his endearingly creepy boss, Adam repeatedly refuses to go in front of the camera…at least until his bills catch up with him and he falls for Nick’s dubious charm. Circumstances snowball until he’s being pimped out by his boss as a high-class escort to famous men who need discretion with their booty calls. But when Adam falls in love with one of his clients, a closeted TV star, his dreams of serious acting—and true love—hang in the balance. Viewer’s Guide: Nudity and graphic sexual content.

HANNAH AND THE HASBIAN

I WANT TO GET MARRIED

(Australia, 72 min) A hilarious Australian flick that plays out like a demented episode of Golden Girls. If your girlfriend decides she’s suddenly totally hetero, do you have to give a straight guy a toaster? Reserved Hannah finds out that the love of her life just isn’t into the whole girl thing anymore. But Breigh may not be able to untangle herself from persistent Hannah, who is unwilling to believe that a gold star lesbian is now 100% set on a life of hot man-on-woman action, just because reading Twilight made her more Team Jacob than Team Bella. With flashbacks to the not so distant past when the two leads were falling in love, it’s hard to tell where the girls will land, but the getting there is a roller coaster of hilarity.

(US, 118 min) Can Paul get married in just 6 days? Paul Roll is a lovable nerd who’s achieved everything he’s set his mind to, except…he’s never been successful at finding a man.

Forced by the current economy to take on an ultra-conservative (and antigay) conglomerate known as The Family as a new client, Paul must now tangle head-to-head with its Disney-like villain, Miss Deborah Anderson.

A quirk in time gives Zack an opportunity to make right what, in retrospect, went wrong all those years ago. But Zach’s doppelganger is more interested in finding sex, love and filmmaking stardom than in listening to strange theories about time travel. Will Zach get a second chance? Will his younger self choose love and friendship over money and fame?

(US, 74 min) Texas, 1982. It’s a world ruled by big hair, synth-pop and cowboy boots as Kevin, a straight frat-boy, enjoys finding creative ways to bond with his fellow schoolmates, usually with some ‘straight’ porn and an extra hand. When he encounters Cesar, an openly gay student, Kevin’s heart starts to flutter for the young man, setting off a chain of events where his own sexual identity comes into question. When a weekend with Kevin’s childhood buddies arrives, the heady mix of beers, straight porn and sexual frustration will lead to multiple bed-hopping and soon these ‘longhorns’ won’t know what side of they fence they sit on!

LEADING LADIES

PRIVATE ROMEO

(US, 102 min) You think you can dance? So do Toni and Tasi, the ballroom dancing Campari sisters. Only problem is, they’ve each got a secret that’s dying to be let out. Tasi is the sequined drama queen, sick of the spotlight, while mousy Toni is the stand-in, the wallflower pizza waitress who’s never been kissed—although she has her eye on Mona, a girl with rhythm of her own. The sisters have some big dancing shoes to fill, courtesy of the ultimate stage mom, Cheri (US Latin Ballroom Champ Melanie LaPatin). When Tasi’s secret explodes, Toni sees her chance to sashay in with Mona in tow. They take the lead in the big ballroom competition, challenging everyone and paving the way for queer dance champs to come!

(US, 98 min) Love knows no boundaries, but same-sex attraction in an all-boy military academy is a tough drill.

Audiences will gush at the star-crossed lovers’ first kiss, but their encounter leaves each longing for more. The text takes on new meaning as our man Juliet and his Romeo follow their hearts, oblivious to the sidelong glances and smirks of their fellow soldiers. As the war between the two houses boils over, all of these handsome cadets are pulled into the turmoil of forbidden love.

GET INVOLVED! VOLUNTEERS make the festival happen!

Each year our dedicated volunteers donate their time and earn free movie tickets by planning the festival, staffing important positions all weekend and serving as our voice through the gay and lesbian community across the state. Visit our table in the main lobby for more information how to get involved.


THE SLEEPING BEAUTY OF EAST FINCHLEY (UK/Germany, 72 min) Middle-aged Joan is sleepwalking through a dreary life, tending to her ailing mother and working a boring office job. Her only pleasure is in the songs she sings in the solitude of her room. Enter Patricia, her mum’s visiting nurse, who persuades Joan to join a women’s choir and share her voice with the rest of the world. Complications ensue when Joan, troubled by her Catholic faith and fears of public exposure drops out of the choir just as it heads to the big LGBT music festival. Will Pat have to sing solo? Preceded By: In Summer They Sit, The Elderly is the story of Petra who, prompted by the death of her grandmother, visits Gertrud, her grandmother’s life partner. Gertrud gives her an old suitcase full of memorabilia. Petra, in an attempt to protect memories from fading, decides to make a filmic ode to the love Magdalena and Gertrud shared.

TEENY, TINY MISUNDERSTANDINGS WOMEN’S SHORTS PROGRAM (US, 75 min) In Tracks, based on true events, a shy and lonely runaway falls for a flirtatious high school basketball player with an overbearing, church-loving grandmother. Selena and Jane are caught in a web of desire, deception and untruths in Slip Away. The question is: Who’s lying to whom? In Recessive, Shay is conflicted about whether to have a child with her wife, Norah, knowing that she may carry the marker for a serious genetic disorder.

SOMEDAY I’LL WISH UPON A STAR NC ARTISTS SHOWCASE (US, 76 min) These five short features highlight the contributions from artists across North Carolina including Durham, Greensboro, Fayetteville, Charlotte, and Greenville! Close By That Much examines two aging identical twins who find themselves at a crossroads late in life and how their relationship has affected the family bond. Gordon, a devout Christian, can’t come to terms with his twin’s sexuality. Blair, on the other hand, doesn’t understand why the rest of the family has almost forgotten about him. Alex is the new waitress at a lesbian bar in Curvature. She’s had enough with the constant come-ons and gropings! Along with her fellow employee, Madison, they devise a way to keep the girls off her back. What happens when you realize that you’ve slept with your best friend’s newest date! That’s the dilemma faced by Hayden and Kara in Pride. In Bystander, Dillon is a young man who must find the courage to ask out someone who might possibly be the love of his life. What’s a drag mom or a drag kid? The answer may have you laughing with dressing room hilarity in Kings and Queens: A Royal Family of Drag in North Carolina. Viewer’s Guide: Graphic violence.

TRIGGER

SPORK

WE HAVE TO STOP NOW 2

(US, 86 min) Meet Spork. She’s a girl-identified 13 year-old with an intersex condition. Middle school is a dangerous battleground—and dance is Spork’s weapon of choice. Spork is determined to win the $236 prize at Cherry Lane Middle School’s upcoming talent show so she can use the money to become beautiful and fit in. Unfortunately, the token gang of mean girls (Betsy Byotch and the Byotches) is determined to come out on top, and they aren’t willing to let anything get in their way! But Spork has more people on her side than she thinks.

(US, 105 min) Our favorite hot lesbian therapist couple is back! In this follow-up feature film to We Have to Stop Now, Dyna (Cathy DeBuono) and Kit (Jill Bennett) are as charmingly neurotic as ever as they attempt to maintain their relationship amid endless hilarity and drama. Part Two brings us all up to speed on the current state of the couple’s affairs. So where are they now? Kit’s sister is still crashing on the couch and cracking jokes about the sex swing they bought—and fought over assembling—as part of their attempt to “reinvest” in their marriage. Their place gets even more crowded when Dyna’s sister comes to visit. Kit and Dyna start therapist shopping, but somehow, the new therapists (including Meredith Baxter) all look an awful lot like their old therapist, Susan (Suzanne Westenhoefer).

MEN

WOMEN EVERYONE

(Canada, 83 min) More than ten years after having a band-ending fight on stage, musicians Kat and Vic reunite for the first time on the night they are being honored at a tribute concert for women in rock. Right off the bat, unresolved issues and buried emotions dominate their awkward reunion. Both former slaves to their vices, recovering alcoholic Kat (Deadwood’s Molly Parker) is now successful, pretentious and the epitome of pristine preppiness. Shaggy-haired Vic (the late Tracy Wright, beloved Canadian actress) still dresses the part of a rock star and lives with the same guy from over a decade ago, but she’s substituted drugs with spirituality and a new acoustic sound. As they candidly reconnect over the course of one incredibly eventful night, egos are lost, layers are peeled away, and repressed feelings are revealed.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

YOUR DADDY DON’T ROCK N’ ROLL

(US, 98 min) Paul Greco seems to have it all. He’s a straight philanthropist from an elite world of socialites and black-tie benefits who’s just sold his lucrative business for a fortune and has more time and money than he could have possibly imagined. When his overbearing (but well-meaning) sister decides to give Paul a dog, he now finds himself assuming the daily dog-walking routine in the park. There he encounters Andy Chance, a young, gay, self-employed advertising whiz who happens to walk his own dog on the very same schedule. What starts as a casual daily meeting in the park soon develops into something a bit more questionable. At least that’s what the women in each man’s life seem to think! Now, Andy and Paul find themselves in a series of hilarious situations as they struggle with the differences in their personalities, backgrounds and ages. But most important of all, what happens next in their undefined relationship?

MEN’S SHORTS PROGRAM (US/Canada, 67 min) In 52, Scott Thompson (The Kids in the Hall) probes one man’s greatest nightmare: getting old. 4 Pounds is the story of an actor who focuses his considerable will to the goal of losing some weight. Recording artist Troy Jackson calls for sassy, irreverent voices to join a chorus of queers, who demand justice and equality in Batty Boys Revenge. A warring family is shocked to learn who’s inheriting the family fortune in Who Is Candy Bernardino? A seemingly normal subway ride across Manhattan transforms into a comic anthropological study of the local and exotic species of New York City’s gay “wildlife” in Domestic Shorthair Underground. Bobby, a Korean-American teenage outcast, is working at his parents’ dry cleaners on prom weekend. When the prom queen stops by with her dress, Bobby creates his own night to remember in The Queen. And remember the hilarious “gal detectives” from Chico’s Angels? Well, they’re back in three new comedy music videos: Run From Immigration, You Don’t Know My Life, and Get Down! What does it mean when the only person you love forgets you are his lover in Tell Me a Memory?

THE WISH MAKERS OF WEST HOLLYWOOD (US, 85 min) This old-fashioned and sexy romantic comedy finds three young gay men simultaneously arriving in Los Angeles to fulfill their dreams and aspirations. It’s a coming-of-age story set during a summer that will change their lives. Innocently, they make a wish in a fountain to find true love, fame, and transcendence. But in a bitter world of YouTube celebrities, Facebook, unemployment, and downward mobility, do wishes made in a fountain even still come true? Even more so, are there any hopeless romantics left in the world?

Your perspective is our advantage

WITH DEEP EMOTION, DEVOTION TO YOU WOMEN’S SHORTS PROGRAM (US, 74 min) Jay Dreams combines a series of vignettes, improv, and spoken word/ haiku interludes to tackle issues of identity, polyamory, desire, family, power, and relationships. Will Emily’s first massage also lead to her first lesbian encounter in Candy Apple Red? And could Allison be the object of her own affection…even during lovemaking? That’s the question posed in Allison, My Love. In Recipe for Love, two women from disparate backgrounds embark upon a journey of self-discovery, passion, and their love of food.
