Pride Films and Plays 2014 Gay Film Weekend
Five finalists - Chris Halligan, James Rosenfield, Barry Brennessel, John Woodard, and JB Berg - have been named in PFP's Great Gay Screenplay Contest, an international contest for screenplays with LGBT characters and themes.
The screenplays named as finalists include a wide array of subject matter ranging from an exciting historical drama of two men battling for their love, a comedy about two men looking for one another in LA, a subversive period drama that weaves characters finding their voices and new paths in life, a fun coming-of-age tale, and a suspenseful story of a spy that develops romantic feelings for a man that happens to be a national security threat.
The five screenplays will be performed as enhanced staged readings from November 14 to 16 during Gay Film Weekend at Center on Halsted's Hoover-Leppen Theatre, 3656 N Halsted.
The performance schedule for the weekend is:
o Friday, November 14 7PM Agent Call Boy by James Rosenfield
o Saturday, November 15 2PM The Celestial by Barry Brennessel
o Saturday, November 15 7PM How to Be a Homosexual by JB Berg
o Sunday, November 16 11AM 1974 by Chris Halligan
o Sunday, November 16 3PM Chance Meeting by John Woodard
