Video: QFest 2012 Rising Star Award - David W. Ross|
Mon, July 23, 2012
The multi-talented, model-handsome, openly gay David W. Ross stands in a unique position as an award recipient in the annals of QFest 2012 since the festival had to modify the category, establishing a new award name. Because of his early success as a 'teen-heartthrob' as a member of the popular British boy band, Bad Boys, Inc., his ride came at the ripe age of 17. His stardom ultimately afforded him the opportunity to move from London to Los Angeles and realize a dream come true. Landing the role of Gary in the Sundance 2006 award-winning breakout film, Quinceanero, about the gentrification of L.A.'s Echo Park and the coming of age of two teenagers, was a turning point for Ross who says that he was inspired to write his own film. He admits to teaching himself how to write from the book, "Screenwriting For Dummies," resulting in the semi-autobiographical, I Do, a family drama about the challenges of same-sex, bi-national couples victimized by marriage inequality and unfair immigration policies in modern day America. (He shared the fact that the making of I Do was both heartbreaking and bittersweet as he lost a lover to a harsh and insensitive bureaucratic system.) In addition to being the screenwriter, Ross stars in, and served as producer of, I Do alongside producer Stephen Israel and director Glenn Gaylord (Eating Out, All You Can Eat.).

Wed, July 25, 2012
It's hard to imagine that in 1992, when veteran director Nicole Conn's Claire of the Moon was released, there was not a significant market for lesbian films. Conn (whose film Elena Undone was QFest's 2010 Opening Night selections) is back again with her new sexy romance. In this bold story about the struggles for truth, love and happiness, we are introduced to Rebecca (Barbara Niven), an elegant, prim and punctilious mother to three grown children and wife of a wealthy husband she no longer shares a bed with. Rebecca has an unusual secret, which she's about to reveal to her lesbian best friends—she's never had an orgasm! Deciding that she needs a hand locating her G-Spot, her friends hook Rebecca up with Valentina (the iconic Morgan Fairchild) who manages a successful service business, catering to the sexual needs of its clients. While money can't buy her love, it can buy time. Her needs are attended to by a high-priced bisexual escort. Paris is a stunning sultry, tall brunette with come-to-bed brown eyes, played by out lesbian model and actress Jessica Clark. Initially wary of their age-differences, Rebecca discovers in Paris a passionate, lustful, intoxicating soul mate who offers respite from her home life. Neither of them could have predicted what develops. What starts as a cash transaction between two strangers ends up uniting two souls. Each needs to learn to love themself (and each other) in order to own her past and journey on. A strong supporting cast and astonishing performances by the films central leads will enthrall audiences. If ever there were a shrine to be built to honor the goddesses of lesbian cinema, it would surely include Nicole Conn who has dedicated her life to our stories and is already working on the script for her next production.
