Showing at SIFF and Frameline
As reported in the Hollywood Reporter and elsewhere this week, we will be directing Uma Thurman in a feature film about Anita Bryant.
We've been interested in Ms. Bryant's story for years -- Rob since making The Times of Harvey Milk -- and we're excited that this project is finally getting traction. The script is by Chad Hodge, who visited Anita at her Oklahoma home as part of his research.
We're thrilled that Lovelace has been selected as the opening night film at the Provincetown International Film Festival on June 19th. Can't wait - we love this festival!
Great screening, great party!

Our new short documentary The Battle of amfAR will have its New York premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 24th, 5:30pm at the SVA Theater 2 in Chelsea. Rob and Jeffrey will be there along with some special guests.
Sad to hear the news. From our research, Harry was possibly the only porn-related acquaintance that Linda had good things to say about.

Lovelace screenwriter Andy Bellin wrote this article for the New York Observer about the world premiere of Lovelace at Sundance last week.
