Film Fest 2018

Homecomings, of All Sorts . . .

Fresh Fruit at the East Village Queer Film Festival

in residence, at The WILD Project – 195 East 3rd Street

Some of us worked on a unique play back in the 1990s. Don Scimé’s The David Dance told a heartwarming life-journey, a story of sibling love and mutual understanding. It was hard NOT to get involved with this play, as dozens of critics pointed out. Now we see it back as a full length, multi-award winning feature film. 

More recently we had a play in the Fresh Fruit Festival called Sunset. A short subject by Gary Jaffe, it too has now surfaced as an award-winning film. With both of these masterworks in one Festival, we are pleased to present Fresh Fruit at the EVQ Film Festival – at The WILD Project! Plus, a staged reading of a new screenplay by Johnny B. Dunn on Sunday.

David is the soft spoken host of a local radio show “Gay Talk” in Buffalo. When his sister Kate decides to adopt an orphan in Brazil and asks David to be a father figure, David grapples with his self-doubts while gawkily romancing his co-worker. Past and present intertwine in this bittersweet winter’s tale of a man learning to love and accept himself.

And in the same festival,  first presented as a play in The Fresh Fruit Festival, the Independent Short:
