We had our big LA screening last night at Outfest – All Girl Friday – sold out over a week in advance – fantastic audience – our beautiful cast and much of our film family and friends in attendance – we could not have asked for more. It was such a success, and let me tell you that I was not surprised when two of the biggest heartfelt congratulations came from Jill Bennett and Cathy DeBuono, fellow filmmakers with sell-out crowds of their own. These women are a class act, and they feel as we do – mutual support is critical – we need to lift each other up, not worry about who the hell is selling more tickets. Making any film is a challenge, on so many levels, but making a lesbian film has some added potholes of a special nature. The way Elena Undone began was me asking Nicole a question – “why aren’t there more lesbian films out there?” As a female in love with a woman for the first time, where ya gonna go to learn what it’s all about? I was shocked at how few choices I had. Luckily, I found some product that was marvelous and taught me a thing or two! Now here’s the deal – this population is growing and being more heard and seen than ever before, and in my mind there is no apparent reason why we can’t get busy and increase the size of Wolfe Video’s catalog in short order. That has become one of my personal goals – I would actually love to see a women’s movie open Outfest or Frameline one of these years!
