The much anticipated Frameline38, the world’s leading LGBT film festival hosted in San Francisco, is kicking off on Thursday, June 19, and all of us here at B’stro couldn’t be more excited about this year’s lineup.
Whether it’s the opening night, emotionally-charged and five-years-in-the-making sublime documentary The Case Against 8; the closing night, German coming-of-age dramatic comedy, I Feel Like Disco or any of the over 200 films in between, this is going to be a Frameline for the ages.
But the film we’re most looking forward to is probably at the top of most festival attendee’s lists and that is To Be Takei, the centerpiece documentary at Frameline38 that celebrates Star Trek legend, marriage-equality advocate, spokesperson for Japanese Americans imprisoned in internment camps during World War II, Facebook phenomenon (with nearly 7 million fans), and recipient of this year’s Frameline Award: George Takei.
A True Labor of Love
As the premier creative sponsor of the Frameline Film Festival, we’re honored to have played such a significant role in the development and evolution of the world’s largest LGBT film festival in recent years.
From the “Find Your Story” theme of Frameline36 to the identity, logo and theme of this year’s Frameline38, we’ve developed multiple interactive marketing campaigns, designed and relaunched the website, created immersive video promotions, and merged the online and the offline world through social, video, billboards, posters and T-shirts.
Now all that’s left for us to do this year is to grab some popcorn, find a comfy seat in the theater and enjoy the latest and greatest in LGBT film.
