  1. Any possibility of a screening in Seattle, WA

  2. We’re waiting to hear from the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) at the end of this month. Know anybody there? Tell ’em you want to see JUDAS KISS at their festival!

    Thanks, –/carlos

  3. Have you tried submitting to Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival? Their deadline for submissions is Apr 29, 2011. Would love to see the flick here in ATX! Good luck!

  4. We’ve submitted to Austin, and are waiting to hear. If you know anyone there, drop ’em a line and tell them to program JUDAS KISS! Thanks!

  5. Are there plans for Philadelphia?

  6. We hope to announce some soon!

    How about the Tampa International Gay Film Festival in October? Would love to see it filmed there.

  8. We have good feelings about Tampa. Their programming committee has a copy and they’re mulling. Know somebody there? Give ’em a call and say you want to see Judas Kiss! Thanks!

    phillie, pittsburgh, d.c., baltimore, state college…anywhere w/in 3-4 hours of sou-central PA? i can’t wait to see this film.

  10. Philly is a strong possibility, as is DC’s Reel Affirmations. We’re also waiting to hear about NewFest in New York. Keep your fingers crossed!

  11. Let us know when you get serious and are ready to let it be seen anywhere but the coast. The gay capitel of the midwest, Columbus, is glad you’re ignoring us. Thanks!

  12. I know it’s too late for this year, but please consider coming to the Cleveland Film Festival next year.

  13. Tenman,

    We love the Midwest! I just took a train through most of it, stopping in Chicago, Columbus and St. Louis. We’re talking to folks at festivals throughout the Midwest; the coasts just signed us up first. We hope to have more announcements shortly. Thanks for your interest!

  14. when in Portland, Oregon?

  15. will this film reach south africa?

  16. Any chance of the movie coming to Detroit?

  17. Would LOVE to see this screened in Portland, OR for next years festival.

  18. Mandy, we’ve submitted to Portland’s gay festival. If you know someone at that festival, tell them you want to see the film.

    Ray, I hadn’t thought of Detroit. Is there a particular festival there you’d recommend?

    Jonty, I think we submitted to a South African festival. I’ll have to check and get back to you.

    tenman, if it’s any consolation to you, Columbus is ignoring me, too.

  19. What about Chicago? Have you tried submitting it for the Reeling Fest?

  20. TED LEBLOND says:

    June 19, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    howdy- what about Providence, RI??

  21. I live in Pittsburgh PA, and they are having their Gay/Lesbian Film Festival from Oct 14th to Oct 23rd, and the submission application is here: http://www.pilgff.org/2011_PILGFF_Submission_Form.pdf

    Just to help you out 😉

  22. Thanks for the help, Jason! We’ve already been in touch with the programming folks at Pittsburgh. But if you wanna drop ’em a line saying how much you want to see Judas Kiss, I wouldn’t have a problem with that 🙂

    Here’s their Facebook page. Let ’em hear from you! http://on.fb.me/nPaFIr

  23. Yikes! How did such a great film NOT get picked up by the 21st Annual Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film and Video Festival (May 19-29, 2011)?

    I hate to think that we might have to wait till May 2012 before we get a chance to see the film here in Toronto!
