FACES Project ~ Celebrating the 30th LGBT Boston Film Festival

Thirty years. It’s hard to believe really but it’s even more appreciated when you hear George Mansour’s, founder of the Boston’s LGBT Film Festival, stories of how it all came about. He and fourteen others came to our South End set earlier this month to be apart of the FACES Project to share their stories, thoughts and experiences about what it means to be LGBT in 2014. The talented crew from Camerata interviewed and videoed each one and then I captured their individual Portraits. All were debuted this past Thursday, April 3rd at the Festival’s Opening Night at the ICA on Boston’s Waterfront and the FACES trailer and slideshow will be running at the film screenings as well. I am honored to be a part of something so moving and creative. It was an emotional day for sure – everyone sharing such raw emotions and articulating their beautiful stories as well as hopes for the future. All talked about how far the fight for equality has come. And one spoke to the issues on a global scene too. I am thankful to live in the state the was the first legalize gay marriage and where we walk the streets of a city that embraces, values and loves the gay community. Be sure to check out the films that will be running now through April 12th (at the ICA, MFA, Brattle, Paramount + Fenway!) And of course don’t miss the FACES trailer and slideshow highlighting the diverse and talented members of the Greater Boston LGBT Community too. Here’s to you!

“Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.”
