THESE AWARDS ARE SO GAY!

THESE AWARDS ARE SO GAY!

The 2005 International Gay Film Awards is the only award show to recognize and celebrate gay themed theatrical motion pictures films that have had limited theatrical releases and have been overlooked by the mainstream awards shows. By changing perceptions of gay life and enhancing the community’s visibility worldwide through film, the independent gay films nominated challenge people’s ideas of what’s normal and accepted.

The Award show will be held in the heart of Hollywood Friday, February 25, 2005 at 7:30 pm. The event will be an evening to celebrate the theatres, film festivals, distributors, filmmakers, financiers and stars who have contributed in bringing these stories to audiences worldwide. Presenters of the Awards will be celebrities and filmmakers from the independent film community.

Winners will be awarded the GLITTER AWARD. “The name glitter was chosen because we believe that all of these films one way or another have had an impact on peoples lives and deserve an opportunity to shine,” says Jorge
Ameer, Executive Director of the awards show.
