Creator of the film “Boys Will Be Boys,” Chuck Beatty, realized Ohio was missing something: An LGBT independent film festival. So (like any passionate Everyday Gay), Beatty set sights on starting the project, and he made it happen! Welcome to CNKY Scene Film Festival, Cincinnati’s first official LGBT Film Festival!
Here’s their mission statement: “CNKY Scene Film Festival fosters a creative outlet for the tri-state area where LGBT issues are expressed and discussed through art of film.”
Even better news: CNKY Scene Film Festival is currently accepting film submissions to be considered for the 2012 event. Shorts, features, and documentary are being considered — check out the submissions site for information. If you’re not able to submit but still want to take part, plan on hitting the Midwest to watch independent masterpieces. Mark your calendars for July 20-22, 2012! Check out their Facebook page for even more details.
