Sidewalk Film Festival - Audience Award!


We won the Audience Award for MAPPLETHORPE of Sidewalk Film Festival(the greatest film fest in Southeast) on Sunday night but I missed receiving it b/c I’d snuck out after Juki presented his jury awards (yes, my lad was a juror there again- still only 14 yrs old but 6’2”) We’d been Closing Night of the Shoutfest (LGBTQ pt of the fest) that night & then man those volunteers musta counted those ballots quick to tally that we won most popular film of the whole darn Sidewalk Film Festival just 2 hours later!! Thx Birmingham!!! And Thx, @GrahamCorayBoettcher (Director of The Birmingham Museum of Art) for hosting my Q&A! Also bless the fabulous Farah White for the artsy pics of said Q&A & the celebratory piggie back ride yesterday. And to one of the greatest fest programmers in America, Rachel Morgan, & badass producer, Melodie Sisk, who treated us to a beautiful babe brunch and are always a dream to be with. Thank god Rachel & Juki didn’t kill me the other night (see laser guns) so I could live to see this great day. Congrats to the teams at Mapplethorpe Movie & Samuel Goldwyn Films and also to Madeleine Olnek for winning the Shout Festival for Wild Nights with Emilyand friends @Theolove & Bryan Storkel for opening Sidewalk Film Festivalwith "White Tide: The Legend of Culebra"
