Last night, Tyrell, Nic, Tommy, Calan, and myself attended the Canadian Premiere of the film Judas Kiss at the Vancouver Queer Film Festival. This was one of our two sponsored films at the festival this year, and it was a full house. The film was also being shown by GuySpy, and someone from the sold out audience won an iPad from them.
In case you’ don’t already know, here is the film’s plot: “The film is the story of a disillusioned filmmaker’s visit to his peculiar alma mater, where he is trapped in a tug of war between his tortured past and a troubling future.”
Many of the cast and crew of the movie were in attendance, and following the screening of the film, I got to call them up and host the Q&A session. The lead actors in attendance included Charlie David, Sean Paul Lockhart (aka Brent Corrigan – shown with me in the header photo), and Richard Harmon. Other actors included Julian LeBlanc (Hellcats) and Genevieve Buechner (Caprica). The director and producer, J.T. Tepnapa and Carlos Pedraza were also in attendance. These two also wrote the film together and I have to say I loved the camaraderie between them during the Q&A – their banter was hilarious! I really enjoyed some of the experiences that Charlie David and Sean Paul Lockart shared with the audience about the filming of the movie and how they related to the script.
August is now here and the 2011 Vancouver Queer Film Festival is just around the corner, taking place August 11th – 21st. For 11 days each August, the Vancouver Queer Film Festival brings the very best in queer independent film from around the world and into Vancouver.
Homorazzi is proud to be sponsoring the festival once again, and specifically sponsoring the Canadian premiere of Judas Kiss. We’ll be at the premiere as well as the “GuySpy Presents Judas Screening and Party” taking place on Saturday, August 13th. Lucky for me, I got to watch a prescreen of the film and I loved it! Charlie David (Dante’s Cove) was great, and so was the other lead, played by Richard Harmon. I was even surprised that a porn star could be such a great actor, but Brent Corrigan “nailed it,” so to speak.
