The creator of the hit Sundance short “RICK & STEVE THE HAPPIEST GAY COUPLE IN ALL THE WORLD” is having a problem. Due to the film’s immense popularity, festivals around the world are clamoring to include it in their line-ups, particularly Gay and Lesbian festivals. For example, in the first two weeks of June, RICK & STEVE is schedule to appear at 13 film festivals. This is great news. Unfortunately, there are only three prints to go around. Because the festival circuit doesn’t really make any financial return to filmmakers, they’ve come up with a solution: A 16mm color print of the 8-minute animated film costs only about $75 to order. The filmmakers are inviting donors to “sponsor” their own film print. With a donation of only $75, they will strike a print of the film to be sent out onto the festival circuit. They’ll keep track of all the places your print has been, and when Rick & Steve’s festival run is over, the print is yours to keep! Or you can donate the print to your favorite charity or Gay and Lesbian organization.
Contact producer/director Q. Allan Brocka at 323-634-9304 or email FILM THREAT has already become a donor and you should too! Also, check out the RICK & STEVE website!
