GAYBY

Mon 12th - 10:30pm - Triskel

Jonathan Lisecki
USA / 2012 / 89mins

Matt, a gay comic book artist, and Jen, his straight best friend, decide to have a baby together ... the old-fashioned way. Surrounded by a group of friends supportive and critical in equal measure, the unlikely couple battle through ovulation tests and testing copulation sessions in their valiant attempt to bring a baby into the world.
Set in Brooklyn and populated by a cast of hilarious American actors (including Adam Driver and Alex Karpovsky from HBO's Girls), this is a warm-hearted comedy perfect for people of all persuasions.

Hi Outlook Film Festival! Don't miss out on How to Survive a Plague UK: the inspiring story of LGBT activists, whose campaigning and innovation turned AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable condition. Join us for the Irish premiere, screening at Triskel Arts Centre, Thursday 28 November 8.30pm. Tickets available here: http://ow.ly/r5wjj Please SHARE to help spread the word!
To those of you who care, Please consider helping us find an audience for our film “Arias With A Twist: The Docufantasy” by supporting our Kickstarter campaign to raise finishing funds. We feel it is extremely important for gay artists to be celebrated and to reach as wide an as possible – gay or straight. Unfortunately we live in a time where gay artists are often marginalized and stereotyped. Wouldn’t it be nice if talented gay artists wouldn’t to ride at the back of the American cultural bus? Anyone who has seen our film understands that it is a joyous exploration of what talent and inspiration can produce. Wouldn’t it be nice if this exuberance could be enjoyed on a national level? Can any of you say you are happy with the state of the Arts in America? Can you honestly say you care about Snooki and her “meatball” (that’s stupid for “baby”.)? It is a sad day when I realize that it is nearly impossible to get broadcast distribution for films about art, music or culture, but really easy to get ratings for a show about people hoarding, pawning, cursing or acting drunk and vapid. Could those people actually be the new American heroes? What happened to aspiration? Inspiration? Any kind of human expression that did not involve profanity or vomit? Are we the people, people of relative intelligence, some creativity, and discerning taste going to sit back and take what is handed to us from the broadcast powers that be? Perhaps we can give our brains a fighting chance. What if we were to pool all of our creativity, know how and networking and create alternatives for those of us who still feel passion for painting, dance, music and the power of human expression? What if we were to create a network of PEOPLE LIKE US? What if we were to harness the Internet and treat our screens to a taste of the arts? PEOPLE LIKE US need to cast our vote in support of content: content that is stimulating and enriching, and not the soul decaying junk food enjoyed by an audience with whom you wouldn’t share a meal, let alone an entire evening. With the help of Josh and Dan Braun of Submarine, “Arias With A Twist: The Docufantasy” has found online distribution. Submarine has found audiences for Academy Award winning films such as “The Cove,” “Man On Wire,” and iconic indie films like “Super Size Me,” “Food Inc,” and countless other films of equal merit. Now, all we need to for people to cast a vote in support of our film. That vote comes in the form of making a donation of ANY SIZE to our Kickstarter campaign. Here is the link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1416799130/arias-with-a-twist-the-docufantasy We need the Kickstarter funds to raise the additional funds needed to clear some lingering music rights for "Arias With A Twist: The Docufantasy" and allow it to be seen online by a national audience. Scenes such as Joey and Klaus performing with David Bowie on SNL, Joey performing "Born To Be Wild" in front of 500,000 Germans at the Berlin Gay Pride Parade (Christopher Street Parade in Berlin lingo) or the "Can Can" music that accompanies Basil's show girls scene will have to be cut from the film if these have rights are not cleared. It would be a hell of a lot easier just to cut and replace but that would be awful. We realized the power of Kickstarter after Jeff Hays, (the producer of "On Native Soil" - shortlisted for an Oscar) our Executive Producer on a healthcare documentary entitled "Doctored”, launched the 3rd most successful film fundraising in Kickstarter history. The goal was to raise $75,000 but he raised $241,948 with 1,417 backers in 30 days. The capital, and the awareness it raised, was a massive positive shot in the arm for this, our current project. This could be the beginning of something new: public support for shows that the now downsized PBS network used to show. The public is now responsible for providing programming for PEOPLE LIKE US - programming that informs and inspires; programming from which students who have had their art programs cut can learn, and where people who can’t travel to art galleries around the country can see new things and be amazed. Lastly, please consider forwarding this post to other like-minded individuals.
Hi. Im looking for actors for a short that Im making called 'The Unquiet Grave' Hopefully filming the start of August (date will be confirmed by Friday) Looking for: Male- Between early 20's to 30's to play a man who is haunted by his wife. And Female - Again between early 20's and 30's. This is only a short indipendent film so there would be no pay involved. The film is set in the Victorian period. But on completion hope to enter in as many film festivals as possible. Script available at request. If interested please email at [email protected]. Thanks.
