WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FILM GENRE?
Mystery, espionage and whodunit?
WHAT IS THE FIRST FILM YOU REMEMBER SEEING AS A CHILD?
At home, “The Sound of Music.” In a movie theatre, “Peter Pan.”
WHAT WAS THE FIRST FILM YOU SAW MORE THAN ONCE?
“For Your Eyes Only” (1981) – the 12th James Bond flick, this one starring Roger Moore with the title song by Sheena Easton. Some 35 years later, and I’m still a huge James Bond fan.
WHAT MOVIES DO YOU WATCH WHEN YOU’RE NESTING AT HOME?
I don’t often watch movies at home. But, when I do, it’s still mystery, espionage and whodunit?
WHAT FILM DO YOU MOST OFTEN RECOMMEND TO FRIENDS?
Again, mystery, espionage and whodunit?
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO AT THIS YEAR’S REEL PRIDE FILM FESTIVAL?
The variety of films being offered. Some domestic, some international. They run the gamut of LGBTQ+. Besides the actual movies and shorts, themselves, I absolutely love the way Fresno Reel Pride brings our diverse community and its allies together to celebrate Queer Cinema.
It helps us – as a community – remember where we’ve come from, respect where we are now, and provide us hope for a better tomorrow.
“We’re here. We’re Queer. And, we’re having a film festival!”
