I bet you get the gist of this one…but not quite. Festivals like the Sundance Film Festival serve a great purpose; however, The Film Professor and I are looking to dig, if you will, deeper. Consequently, we are researching and will continue to research festivals that have, shall we say, a broader audience or, perhaps better put, a broader message. A great example is the Wicked Queer Festival, Boston’s annual LGBT Film Festival; something that focuses on viewpoints and issues and struggles and triumphs through a lens, if you will, that some readers not yet appreciate. Remember people, the definition of festival is “a period of celebration,” and I believe it is WAY more fun to celebrate with people who bring to the party views that differ from mine.
It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help.
