If you’re in sunny California this month, you’ve got the opportunity to catch writer and director Josef Steiff’s short film in not just one festival, but two!
The comedic short “I Like My Boyfriend Drunk,” starring Brandon Ogborn, was selected for inclusion in two September film festivals – The Brainwash Drive-In/Bike-In/Walk-In Film Festival in Oakland and the Cinema Diverse! Palm Springs Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.
Only catch – it’ll be screening at both fests on Friday, September 21st. So, while you may not be able to catch the flick twice, you do have the luxury of choosing which festival suits you best.
For artsy/experimental/anything-goes/outdoor movie junkies, check out the 18th Annual Brainwash Film Festival. Food and music starts promptly at 8 pm, followed by movies at 9 pm. The short films will play in 90 minute curated segments, and you can catch Steiff’s film early on in the program – it’s fourth in the line-up. If you’re only in it for this screening, a $10 single night ticket can be purchased in advance online. But if a weekend long party’s what you’re looking for, be sure to check out the $50 Festival Two Pack – that’s admission for two to all four nights of the festival, running on September 15th, and September 21st through the 23rd.
If you’d prefer an indoor experience or find yourself more local to the Palm Springs area, head over to Cinema Diverse! at Camelot Theatres. The Palm Springs Gay and Lesbian Film Festival is in its fifth year, and includes both short films and features. The festival runs the entire weekend, September 20th through 23rd, and Steiff’s film, again, screens here on the 21st. For the full schedule, visit the Cinema Diverse! homepage, and for ticketing information go to www.camelottickets.com.
