Hey all --

For all those who write these shorts and think you can't go out and make them, here's proof you can!

"Bedfellows"

Please let others know if you like our trailer and become a fan of the film on Facebook. I'm proud to have been inspired by this contest to make a short that our cast and crew all feel an incredible sense of pride about.

I hope you'll be able to check out the full 15-minute film at film festival near you! We'll keep you updated...

Enjoy!
WF

Congrats WF!  I remember reading this and being impressed by not only the screenplay, but the passion you had to bring it to life.  Congrats on making it happen!

I admire your passion and efforts, WF.  Proof that dreams really can come true.  Though not so ambitious as you, I recently had the honor of having garnered major interest for one of my feature length scripts by Russell Simmons.  Though it has been an arduous journey over the past ten months, I just received word that Mr. Simmons is in discussions with a particular actress for the lead role.  If she's in, then I'm told that the project is a go!  I anxiously await the intense meeting soon to come.  (Anyone know a good entertainment lawyer with a particular expertise in such matters?)  This rookie can't hold his breath much longer.:>)

Thanks everyone!  Very excited to have all this going on for Bedfellows, and it's awesome to see other participants making it happen as well!

Our first reviews from The Atlanta Film Festival are rolling in already, where we were nominated for the Pink Peach Jury Award!

"Intuitive scoring and smart dialogue...This tender story speaks for itself."
-- DontLabelIt.com

"If the marriage montage in “Up” made you misty you’ll weep buckets at the gay equivalent, “Bedfellows” by Pierre Stefanos."
-- Steve Warren, TheGAVoice.com


We close out our run today, April 21st, in Atlanta at 4:35pm, so please check out the Gay Shorts program there!  It was easily my favorite of 4 screenings during the fest and the quality of these shorts makes me all the more proud to have been regarded so highly by critics and audiences alike!

Also, mark your calendars for screenings at The Seattle International Film Fest on May 23rd, as well as our California AND international premieres later this year!  More info to come!

Hey WF, congrats on directing your own film! I watched the trailor and loved it. I don't know how much control you have over what festivals you take "Bedfellows" to, but I'm in Madison, WI, and it would be great if you brought it to the Sundance film festival in Madison or the Wisconsin film festival. I'd love to see it!

LOL - The Wisconsin Film Festival may have something to say about showing my film before I do, but one of my big supporters throughout the filming process graduated from Madison, so maybe he has an in for me!  :)

Stayed tuned for more screening info - we'll be out on the road for a while - or Like us on Facebook where we're updating more often!

Good luck in the contest!

Hey all --

Congrats to all of the winners of the various heats and further congrats if you were able to get your final round scripts done on time!  Having done it last year, I know it can be draining and difficult but well-worth it...

...as is evidenced by my own entry in last year's final round, "Bedfellows!"  Having completed a nice spring run at the Sarasota, Atlanta, and Seattle International Film Fests, we are heading into summer with FIVE more dates on the horizon!  Here they are:

* 2010 Breckenridge Festival of Film - June 11th @ 9pm, Backstage Theatre
* 2010 VisionFest @ TriBeCa Cinemas in NYC - June 24th @ 9:30pm, TriBeCa Cinemas
* 2010 Palm Springs International ShortFest - June 25th @ 7pm, Camelot Theatres
* 2010 Long Island International Film Expo - July 13th @ 7pm, Bellmore Movies
* 2010 Philadelphia QFest - July 15th @ 9:30pm, Ritz East 1

If you're not in one of those cities or states, fear not!  We have many more festivals to go!  If you know of any film fans in these cities, please let them know about "Bedfellows."  They can also keep up to date with our schedule of screen dates on our Facebook and YouTube sites.

Hope to see you at the movies - and keep writing!
WF

Hey all --

I apologize for not being able to stop by more often and read scripts, but as you'll see, it's been a crazy year supporting my short film "Bedfellows," which originated as a script here in 2009!

After 90+ film festival Official Selections, and over 20 international jury and audience awards in just over a year (on 6 continents!), "Bedfellows" has been put on a DVD compilation released by First Run Features called FEST SELECTS: Best Gay Shorts, Vol. 1!

It's a collection of 8 short films that have played major festivals including Slamdance, OutFest, Hamptons Int'l, Austin Film Fest, Atlanta Film Fest, Independent Film Fest of Boston, Seattle Int'l, Palm Beach Int'l, Frameline, Palm Springs ShortFest, London Lesbian & Gay Film Fest, and festivals all over the world!  They go beyond just being niche content, so for who can't get to the top film festivals, or for those aspiring to make your own short films from a script you write, you will find more than a few shorts to enjoy!

The DVD is available now at Amazon, Best Buy, Tower RecordsTLAVideo, and other online retails, and available for rental on NetFlix as well, so please check it out!

And yet, "Bedfellows" is still tearing up the film fest circuit!  If you live in cities like Los Angeles, San Diego, Ft. Worth, Oklahoma City, Hartford, Park City, Minneapolis, Little Rock, "Bedfellows" will be playing near you.  If you live in Mumbai, Mexico City, Athens, Barcelona, Tel Aviv, or Lima, you are in luck as well!  Check out the list of fests - you can also always find updates to the schedule on the "Bedfellows" Facebook page!  I hope you can make it - and best of luck with everyone's script this year!

* 2011 MIX Mexico: Festival de Diversidad Sexual (5/11)
* 2011 Park City Film Music Festival (UT) (5/11)
* 2011 KASHISH: Mumbai International Queer Film Festival (India) (5/11)

Oh, and GreenWriter, I actually did try to have it play at the Wisconsin FF this year, but like in all endeavors, I get rejected sometimes too.  :(  But keep your fingers crossed for a Milwaukee screening later in the year!
