Vanity Fair has published an interesting article on the difficulty of getting financing and support for LGBTQ-themed films – even in this day and age (and even when a major talent is attached behind the camera). Journalist Nick Romano collected the thoughts of numerous LGBTQ directors working today to get their reflection on the current cinema climate.
Included are Andrew Ahn (Spa Night), Ira Sachs (Love is Strange, Keep the Lights On, The Delta), Jamie Babbit (But I’m a Cheerleader, Itty Bitty Titty Committee), Justin Kelly (I Am Michael), Eliza Hittman (Beach Rats) and Sydney Freeland (Drunktown’s Finest).
Check out the full article at the link below. And, of course, be sure to support gay-themed cinema!
