CineSLAM, Vermont’s LGBT Festival of Shorts, is sponsoring a post-film reception and Q&A with the film’s director, Eric Schaeffer, following the 7pm Brattleboro Opening Night screening of Boy Meets Girl on Friday, February 13, 2015 at the Latchis Theater in downtown Brattleboro.
The film’s director was a Brattleboro Union High School student over 40 years ago, and his family still resides in the area. Viewers will recognize many of the film’s Vermont locations and actors, Eric Schaeffer having brought the production to his hometown for filming in the summer of 2013. Among the participating businesses was Brattleboro Union High School, Jamaica Coffee Shop, Bromley View Inn, D&K Country Store, and downtown Brattleboro’s own Salon Jacque.
Continuing its partnership with the Latchis Theater, CineSLAM will present its 2015 LGBT Short Film Festival during Gay Pride Month on Friday, June 19, 2015 at the Latchis Theater in downtown Brattleboro. Registration for the festival begins on March 1, 2015.
CineSLAM also conducts workshops with CineSLAM’s film directors on Pride of the Ocean’s LGBT Film Festival at Sea, taking place this year in Alaska on board the Celebrity Solstice for 7 days and 7 nights, cruising Alaska’s famous Inside Passage from August 7-14, 2015 with ports of call in Seattle, Ketchikan, Tracy Arm Fjord, Juneau, Skagway, and Victoria.
