One Film, One New York

16 August 2017 6:54 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Have you heard about NYC's fun new free arts event? On September 13th they'll be playing one famous shot-in-and taking-place-in New York film, chosen by the public, all over the city in all five boroughs, at the public screening outdoor venues and in some theaters. The five options are The Wedding Banquet (1993), On the Town (1949), Desperately Seeking Susan (1985), New York New York (1977) or Crooklyn (1994) and were selected by the film critics of the New York Times. You can vote on which one here but the best thing about it is whichever film wins, the public wins because they're all good films.

Where would your vote go? I'm still trying to decide on mine. I'm only sad that this date is during the Toronto International Film Festival so I'll have to miss it. *cries* »

Two Gay Dads. One Meddling Tiger Mom. What Could Go Wrong?

Coming out on DVD, Blu-ray & VOD in the U.S. & Canada August 15 from Gravitas Ventures.

Starring: Grace Guei, Barney Cheng and Michael Adam Hamilton

I really enjoyed this feature length comedy about modern international gay and family life and what modern parenthood can involve.

Oscar-winning producer Li-Kong Su (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and Stephen Israel (Swimming With Sharks, G.B.F.), give us Baby Steps, a comedy-drama directed, written and starring Barney Cheng about gay family issues in complicated dynamic of a cross-cultural and multi-generational Taiwanese-American family.

Danny, a Taiwanese-American man, longs to have a baby with his American boyfriend Tate, but their attempts at international surrogacy are complicated by Danny’s meddling mom, who wants to control every aspect of the process — all the way from Taipei. She descends upon them and their life together and proceeds »

New York City Wants Its Own Citizens to Pick Their Favorite NYC-Centric Film, From ‘Crooklyn’ to ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’

1 August 2017 7:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What is the quintessential New York City film? The city’s own Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment is eager to know, and has launched a new citywide campaign — in tandem with the New York Times — to “unite New Yorkers around one great film.” The initiative, known as “One Film, One New York” is inspired by the success of its recent “One Book, One New York” campaign, which asked citizens to pick a favorite book to then “read together” as a city.

“We are thrilled to be launching this program to unite New Yorkers around one film, and provide the opportunity for all New Yorkers to watch it for free on the same night,” said Media and Entertainment Commissioner Julie Menin in an official statement. “Film has the power to bring people together and to spark a civic conversation. These five films all raise important themes in their respective genres, »
