Forty gay films lined up for festival

Sun 8 Dec 2002 In: New Zealand Daily News

The number of entries in the Triangle Television gay film festival has far exceeded it's organisers' expectations. Forty films, including three from New Zealand, will screen on the Auckland channel from February 1 to March 12 next year. "The number of entries is double last year`s edition" says festival programmer Hans Versluys. He says the vast majority are short films, "mainly from budding new film makers who want their work showcased, and that's a main aim of the festival." The New Zealand films will include Wigs On The Waterfront by Julia Durkin and The Nice Girls Guide to being a Lesbian by Marie Ammerman. A pacific Islands flavour will be captured by Miss Galaxy by Everall Deans which is described as "a fascinating glimpse into the world of the Tongan fakaleti."
