Today kicks off one of the most anticipated film festivals of the summer: Frameline39 Film Festival. Frameline is an LGBTQ Film Festival hosted at the Castro Theater in San Francisco. Founded in 1977, Frameline is the longest-running, largest and most widely recognized LGBT film exhibition event in the world. With an annual attendance of 60,000, the festival is the most prominent and well-attended LGBT arts program in the Bay Area.
Asian Pacific America, NBC Bay Area’s public affairs show with host Robert Handa, featured three Frameline Film Festival producers and directors – Ruth Gumnit and Marguerite Salmon for their film Visible Silence and Tina Takemoto for her film Sex, Politics & Sticky Rice – where they spoke about how their film affects the Asian LGBTQ community.
