That's how I to my great frustration missed out on covering whatever went on with Tribeca earlier this year, as well as the currently ongoing Fantasia Fest in Montreal this year after several years of covering that, that's why I haven't mentioned that NYC's LGBT fest called NewFest just recently announced they'll be fully online come October (you can check out their website here though), and I guess that's why I missed that Los Angeles' LGBT film fest called OutFest (also currently ongoing) was also this year going entirely digital, and open to people outside of L.A. Has anybody been keeping up with it?
The Closing Night movie is from director Travis Fine and called Two Eyes and it looks (heh get it, cuz eyes) interesting -- it's apparently a triptych of stories and you can read about it here. And that doesn't drop online until August 30th so I actually beat that one to the punch! Here's the teaser trailer for it:
Anyway I have every intention of getting my shit together for the New York Film Festival come October -- I refuse to mess up that, at least. (I have already posted about what NYFF is preparing, right here.) This year won't be an entire wash, at least. Have any of you participated in any of the virtual film festivals this year? Have you gone to a screening? I am sad that drive-ins aren't an option for me here in NYC (without a car); I'd kill to do a drive-in. I re-watched Peter Bogdonovich's Targets recently and it put me in the mood!
