Film Fest Committee Report:

  1. The film fest dates are April 18-19.
  2. We all agreed that For the Bible Tells Me So would be a great movie to show the Sunday the 20 th and Pioneer Place is open. There would be no rental fee for the space but there would be a charge for the tech and screen. Would HRC be willing to pay for the tech and screen rental? Will there be sign language interpreters? Gary S will follow up with that committee.
  3. Entertainment suggestions: Leesa, Cheer Dorothy Cheer, Al Franken, the lesbian band Sick of Sarah, Tania --a drag queen from the TC to sing and MC a possible student drag show. Dan B. will check on costs for Tania.
  4. There are more movies to preview. Jerry suggests Back Soon, Amnesie, and Rock Haven. We will have a double feature on 1/20 at Gabi and Brandi’s at 2 pm.
  5. Friday night: Freeheld would be an excellent choice. We could center the talk on workplace issues. OUTFRONT would be an excellent source for speakers.
  6. Still having trouble finding a lesbian feature or shorts.
  7. MONEY: Brandi made some spreadsheets with last year’s advertising information and worksheets for this year. We brainstormed new possibilities and signed up to contact people.
  8. Please be brainstorming for advertisers. Think about your personal connections and come with ideas to the next meeting.
