queerguru reviews Lone Scherfig’s new movie THEIR FINEST a rather charming romantic comedy set in London in Blitz in the 1940’s is essentially a tale of an accidental feminist who single-handedly saved the British film industry and boosted the flagging morale of the war-torn country’s population.

Filmed by Roger Walker-Dack for ‘queerguru reports’ on PTV’s Channel 99

 

queerguru also caught up with Lone Scherfig to talk about the movie during Miami Film Festival in February : apologies for the poor sound as the interview was held in very packed and noisy room at The Standard.

Bobbi Jo Hart is the director of the new movie Rebels on Pointe which is the first documentary that has gone behind the scenes of the world-famous all-male (and all-gay) ballet company Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. It’s a wonderful heartwarming tale of how this Company has not just survived for over 40 years doing their delightful parodies of romantic and classical ballets that have not just won them fans all over the world, but how they have become one of the oldest (and happiest) LGBT organizations.

On the eve of the movie’s East Coast Premiere at Miami’s OUTshine Festival Bobbi sat down with Roger Walker-Dack for queerguru reports on PTV’s Channel 99 to talk about what making this film meant to her.   The interview at the Albion Hotel, Miami Beach was filmed by Douglas C. Lance of www.fotonoggin.com

queerguru caught up with Emmy Award winning producer and director Josh Howard at Miami’s OUTShine Film Festival just before the screening of his new movie.  The Lavender Scare is the first documentary film to tell the little-known story of an unrelenting campaign by the federal government to identify and fire all employees suspected of being homosexual. As we wanted to know more about the worst witchhunt in our community’s history we sat down with John (in a very noisy Regal cinema) to get his take on it all.

The interview was filmed by Roger Walker-Dack for ‘queerguru reports’ on P.T.V.   You can read our full review of the movie here.

24 year old Moises Serrano is one of those selfless millennials who are determined to make their mark on the world by putting themselves on the line to really make a difference for his community.  Both queer and undocumented, this fearless activist has risked his own security by coming out and being prepared to be counted.  His inspiring story, and that of others in similar situations, is captured so beautifully in this must-see documentary Forbidden : Undocumented & Queer in Rural America which is currently doing the rounds of the Film Festivals, where it has already picked up three awards.

Moises sat down with queerguru  prior to the latest screening of the movie at the OUTshine Festival to explain further about the plight of undocumented Americans, and some of his forthright views were not what we expected.

The interview was filmed by Roger Walker-Dack  in the Bar at Miami Beach’s Hotel Gaythering for P.T.V
