That was one of the provocative questions brought up on the first full day of the International Film Festival Summit, a "meeting of the minds" event that is bringing together leading film festival reps in Berlin today and tomorrow. The event is being held at the Berlin Hilton Hotel.

First out of the starting gate is the Jacob Burns Film C...

 by Sandy Mandelberger, Festival Circuit Editor Friday, June 5-----While June is still celebrated as “gay pride month” in North America, the LGBT (that’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender for you neophytes) film calendar actually has become a year-round phenomenon, making every season a new reason to think pink. In all, there are close to 100 separate LGBT film festivals in the U.S. and Canada. The most well-known take place in such gay meccas as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco...

Friday, May 25-----June is the traditional month for celebration of Gay Pride in New York (and around the country, for that matter).

The Stonewall Riots became the touchstone for the modern gay rights movement that continues to battle for expanded privileges...
