If it's May in Seattle it must be the Seattle International Film Festival
Today at 4:00 PM; SIFF Cinema
Critic, curator, journalist, scholar, and star big sister, B. Ruby Rich, explores the phenomenal expansion of the queer cinema movement with a panel of next generation filmmakers - 20 years after first coining the phrase New Queer Cinema in the Village Voice. The influence of such mavericks as John Waters, Lizzie Borden and Derek Jarman along with the second wave of Rose Troche, Todd Haynes, Cheryl Dunye, Gus Van Sant and Greg Araki amoungst others will be explored with filmmakers from the festival.
