Navigating Hollywood with LGBT Content

January 22, 2009
For many filmmakers -- novices and seasoned vets alike -- presenting their LGBT-inclusive film to big-name distributors can be a daunting task. For many, it seems impossible that their gay film will ever hit theaters. For those in doubt, Queer Lounge assembled a group of experts who have beaten the odds and gotten their LGBT projects made. The panelists included Christine Vachon (Killer Films), Ryan Werner (IFC), Eric d'Arbeloff (Roadside Attractions) and David Permut and Daniel Sladek (Lifetime's Prayers for Bobby, which airs this Saturday, Jan. 24). The panel was moderated by film critic for The Advocate, Kyle Buchanan.
