QDoc returns to Portland

The second annual QDoc returns to the Clinton Street Theater May 29-June 1, 2008, right in time to kick off LGBT Pride Month in Portland. QDoc aims to engage the public on core issues of LGBT identity in politics, history, culture, family, aging and coming out issues, queer diversity, gender and sexuality. QDoc is the only festival in the United States, and only the second in the world, devoted exclusively to documentaries with queer content.

The Festival opens Thursday night, with visiting directors Gustav Hofer and Luca Ragazzi to introduce and screen the film "Suddenly, Last Winter", an award winning film that portrays the heated debate around domestic partnerships in Italy. After the screening, the audience is invited to the Opening Night Party, hosted by Clinton neighborhood favorites, Broder and The Savoy Tavern & Bistro.

Closing up the four day festival is a special 35mm screening of the 1984 Academy Award winning, "The Times of Harvey Milk". One of the greatest of all American documentaries, "The Times of Harvey Milk" recounts the life and eventual assassination of the first openly gay person elected to public office in the US. Scheduled to attend are co-director Rob Epstein and Portland director Gus Van Sant, who is currently completing work on his new film, "Milk".

QDoc was founded by Portlanders Russ Gage and David Weissman. Gage served for 10 years as the Operations Director of the San Francisco International Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, the oldest and largest LGBT Film Festival in the world. Weissman is a filmmaker and film festival participant with over 20 years of experience in the field. He is best known for his award winning feature documentary, The Cockettes (2002).

QDoc is designed to be a fun, inspiring, and community-building event. Filmmakers from around the world attend the festival to discuss their work. After only its first year, QDoc was named "one of the top 10 LGBT film festivals in the US" by The full screening schedule will be available at on May 7 and tickets will be available on May 9.
