Frameline Fest "Thank You"s!!

Just a brief post to thank the following directors for their exchanges, dvds and friendships that formed part of my experience with the San Francisco International Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, aka Frameline 30, this year!

Diane Wilkins, director of "CremMate Muffy" (as well as the classic "Anne Dearest: The REAL Miracle Worker" two years ago) provided a great, sick and twisted short in the midst of a week of sincere, important and at times troubling work. She and her partner Marie were a hoot to party with and generous enough to provide me with a copy of their film.

Todd Ahlberg, director of "Meth" and one of his subjects, Ed McKie have been gracious and we, particularly Ed McKie and I, have struck up a supportive friendship via our posts.

David Dean Bottrell, director of "Available Men" was gracious enough to provide a copy of his hysterical and Aspen Comedy Festival award winning short! Thank you!

Michael Satzinger, director of "Whispering Moon" has offered a copy of his remarkable and innovatively designed film, all the way from Austria! Thank you!

And finally, though far from least, Philip Lewis, co-director of "Eye on the Guy: Alan B. Stone and the Age of Beefcake" for pointing me in the direction of obtaining a copy of this fascinating documentary, which visually, as well as historically, enthralled me!

I wish them the best and look forward to their future work!!

"Bless you!" [Actually, he says that in response to my blowing my nose, however it IS the closest thing he's got to an actual "Thank you!"]
