The Other Database...

We do strive to include every film that has been screened at the LGBT film festivals around the world.

Life does become a little more difficult when they [the films] don’t have an IMDb entry...therefore, they end up here...films in dire need of publicity/promotion/marketing...

1960s

The Blue Rose

Chuck Renslow

1965

USA | 12 mins
This poetic film is an extension of Renslow's male physique photography of the period. By today's standards, this film is quite tame, however in 1965 films like this remained in a legal grey area, barely escaping obscenity laws. The film stars Steve Kotis as the Grecian shepherd lad, and Ralph Kleiner who is enchanted by the blue rose.

Epilogue / Siam

Tom Chomont

1968

USA | 6 mins
Filmmaker and curator Jim Hubbard states, “Chomont’s films offer a lyric depiction of the ordinary world.” Here, Chomont presents two portraits–one warm, and one cold.
