The first rebranded Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival is a wrap! And, “TWIST: Seattle Queer Film Festival” was a huge hit thanks to the hard work of the event’s producers, Three Dollar Bill Cinema under the leadership of executive director Jason Plourde and this year’s programming director Keith Bacon. (Oh, and the hard work of the entire team and Three Dollar Bill’s awesome volunteers).
They even overcame the drama of losing their main exhibition venue after the Egyptian Theatre suffered structural damage after being hit by a truck 3 days into the festival!
Here’s all the poo from Three Dollar Bill on what films won in the various competitions and what to look forward to next…a make-up screening/live event of the locally made film THE LONG HAUL starring local male exotic dance troupe The Buckaroos happening on Tuesday November 1 back at the Egyptian.

Rescheduled from its original TWIST date
Ticketholders and Full Series Passholders: your ticket or pass will admit you to the rescheduled event;no exchange is necessary.
THE FULL MONTY meets the (very) Wild West in this interactive live performance and documentary film featuring six “average joes” baring their souls-and then some. This locally created production follows the visionaries behind Seattle’s Moulin Rouge-inspired cabaret club, Can Can, who set out to reimagine the male revue.
