The theme of the July 2018 LGBT FEEDBACK Film Festival in Los Angeles was “The Status Quo is Impossible”.
For the 2nd time in three months the city of Toronto was mourning a random mass killing the week of the festival. It’s still a shock to the city that something like this could have occured.
On Sunday night the ticket sales for this event were low. Then by the time Tuesday morning rolled around, we were sold out. I think part of that reason is people wanted to come out and support the city of Toronto. Not stay inside closed doors out of fear. There was something inspirational about this festival night. No one brought up what just occured early that week but everyone was thinking about it.
This was a great night showcasing the best of LGBT films from around the world. A beautiful, sophisicated crowd who was very much into the dicussion of the shorts presented.
See you at the festivals.
