Text:Since being a host on Queer Nation, Max Currie has been a busy screenwriter. Tonight his first feature film, Everything We Loved, will debut on the big screen, at your house – and even on planes! We caught up with the talented gay filmmaker. Remember Max from Queer Nation? He was a host and director of the show, sparking his screen career. “Over the course of eighty episodes, the then 21-year-old left no aspect of human sexuality unexplored,” as his bio puts it. Since then, he’s lived in New York working as a bartender while a film and video arts intern, and worked as a screenwriter for Palme d'Or winning producer Bill Robinson. In 2008 he was awarded the jury prize for best film in The Huffington Post Contagious Film Festival for his short film protesting Proposition 8: Some Of My Best Friends Are American. Back home in New Zealand he’s written for Shortland Street and Step Dave, but now his feature film – which already has great reviews and award nominations – is about to debut. Currie directs the film's leading lady, Sia Trokenheim. It won’t be an ordinary New Zealand premiere.
