2016 Q&A With Reel Pride - Brian Carnes
Brian Carnes - Reel Pride Treasurer

What’s your favorite film of 2016?
"Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising" It was a fun and mindless flick. Wow! That was back in May...I guess I need to get out more.
What film would you like to see remade as an LGBT film?
OH! I want to see "Willy Wonka" remade with drag queens! Could you just imagine Alaska as Veruca Salt, or Bianca Del Rio as Willy Wonka? How about Lady Bunny as Augustus Gloop's mother?! Why isn't this already in production?!
What’s the last series you binge watched?
"Orange is the New Black" Did you see that season closing scene? NAIL BITER! They'd better hurry up with the next season of "The Fall" so I don't go through withdrawals of Netflix and Binge...on ice cream...with myself...in stretchy pants...
Who is your dream celebrity date?
Guess I'd better put that spoon of ice cream down now. Neil Patrick Harris. Yeah, I know he's married. No, I don't want to break them up. Just appear at my dinner table in a puff of smoke, tell me what I catch I am, then make a spectacular exit in a shower of glitter.
Who would play you in a movie?
A highly intoxicated person once stumbled by me and said I looked like Vin Diesel. I assume that was the Fireball talking. Let's get NPH back in on this! We'll do dinner again. Yeah, that's the plan. Someone make this happen.
What film are you embarrassed to say you’ve never seen?
I can already feel the judging. "Sixteen Candles" and "Pretty in Pink." I KNOW!! I'm actually a horrible human being, and I'm pretty sure this is grounds for revoking my gay card.
What are you looking forward to at this year’s Reel Pride Film Festival?
This is going to sound rather disjointed, but follow me, won't you, down this winding rabbit trail. I promise it's going somewhere. As a pass-holding member, I look forward to the movies. Nowhere else in the Valley can you come and watch independent LGBTQ+ films from all over the world that tackle such a broad range of topics. As a board member, I'm looking forward to seeing the fruits of our hard labor being enjoyed by all of our guests. Seeing everyone coming together as a community, having a good time, spurring conversation, and forge new friendships makes this all worth while. So personally, I'm most looking forward to the Festival itself.
