Team Experience is sharing favorite Lgbt scenes in cinema for Pride Month. Here's Deborah...
Kissing Jessica Stein is one of my all-time favorite movies, and I could make a whole list of “great moments in gayness” just from Jessica Stein scenes, but there’s one in particular that’s my favorite.
Here’s the quick plot summary: Jessica (Jennifer Westfeldt), cute, quirky, neurotic, single, is reading the personal ads (for you youngsters, that’s the paper equivalent of Tinder or OKCupid), and is struck by one ad in particular. Realizing she’s accidentally been reading in the “Women Seeking Women” section, she throws the paper away, but then decides to answer it anyway.
Helen (Heather Juergensen) and Jessica begin tentatively seeing each other; Helen, too, is exploring bisexuality for the first time. Helen wants to dive right in, but Jessica is nervous, skittish, and afraid.
Cut to Helen at Jessica’s place. »

Tribeca Film Festival wrapped this weekend and I want to hear a huge round of applause for Manuel Betancourt and Jason Adams who filed so many reports. The festival's main narrative competiton was juried by Anne Carey, Chris Nashawaty, and the actors James Le Gros, Mya Taylor and Jennifer Westfeldt. Additional juries handled documentaries, new directors, and international narrative features.

At MoMA PS1 inside the Vw Dome, in conjunction with the Tribeca Film Festival on April 15, 2015, Celia Rowlson-Hall presented an advance preview of Ma, followed by a conversation with Shirin Neshat. In 2013, I spoke with Artistic Director Frédéric Boyer at Michelangelo Frammartino's breathtaking cinematic installation Alberi at PS1.

The company already counts directors such as Richard Linklater (“Boyhood), Justin Lin (“Fast Five”) and Charles Ferguson (“Inside Job”) among its clients. But it’s looking to expand its management portfolio, hoping to capitalize on a moment in Hollywood when up-and-coming talent may struggle to find a foothold at the traditional agencies and the bigger studios. Cinetic has already added a new manager in New York who specializes in actors: Avi Lipski, formerly of Brookside Artist Management.
Cinetic, which helped pool financing for such high-profile art films as “Boyhood” and “Carol,” has ambitions to be a one-stop shop for those who can direct, produce, write and act as many entertainment industry players are straddling the lines between television, film, and digital media.
