Wicked Queer Film Festival Kudos

By Charlotte Robinson, April 24, 2017
Wicked Queer Boston’s LGBT Film Festival which celebrated its 33rd year has announced their 2107's Best in Show. Jury Award Narrative Feature went to “Heartstone”. Audience Award Narrative Feature went to “Thirsty.” Audince Award Short Film Best of the Fest went to “Sisak”. Best on Program Trans was “Walk For Me’, Women's “Pool” (Piscina) Students & First Timers was “Moving-On”, Current Mood: Youth was “Dare & Truth”, Qwocmap “Que Siga La Cumbia” Social Justice/Sex Workers was “The Night Cleaner” International was “Seeing through the Eyes of Crocodiles” & Shorts Spotlight: España was “My Brother” (Mi Hermano) Jury Award Documentary went to “Small Talk” & Audience Award Documentary went to “Jewel's Catch One”. When I talked to James Nadeau, Executive Director of Wicked Queer Boston’s LGBT Film Festival last month about how he sees our LGBTQ community moving forward in a Trump administration Nadeau stated, “What I’m seeing within the filmmaking community is that it’s really sparked an activism that I haven’t seen in a really longtime. For those of us who are of the generation who grew up with friends dying of AIDS I think we’re seeing a resurgence of political activism in the community that is not about to give up the freedoms we fought for which I find very heartening. It’s clearly in reaction to Trump and I think that’s a good thing. I think we need to get fired up & be a more active, politically active community.”

I look forward to the Festival every year and this year it was extraordinary. I appreciated the Festival starting with Lesbian films.
