THE WEDDING DANCE / FRIEND

Elliot London has been working on a beautiful short film (THE WEDDING DANCE) about Equality in a different perspective. Take a look at this 3 minute film and consider posting it when the time is so right to educate one another.



The objective with this project is to raise money for the feature film FRIEND. A film about coming out in 2012. A time now when things are so different with social networking. A time now that a child might not have the correct tools to coupe with humiliation in an instant world.
FRIEND is about giving back. Its a movie about accepting and loving oneself but most of all it is about educating. With the proceeds from this film Elliot London is going to be donating the profits to groups that help educate at risk youth... If we can raise $10,000 to make our last film with social networking. Take a look at the campaign on IndieGoGo.

GUEST HOUSE FILMS ACQUIRES AUSTRALIAN DOCUMENTARY
THE DOCTOR'S WIFE FOR WORLDWIDE DISTRIBUTION

Guest House Films is proud to announce that it has acquired the worldwide rights to Jonathan Duffy's feature-length Australian documentary The Doctor's Wife. Following a film festival run starting this summer, Guest House Films plans to release the film on DVD and VOD this coming fall.
 
The endearing documentary follows Duffy and his partner, Dr. Vincent Cornelisse, as the couple makes the angst-inducing decision to leave the Australian metropolis of Brisbane for Mundubbera, a small country town in Queensland. The Doctor's Wife explores the couple's journey, as a rural doctor and his partner who had never lived in the country before, as they move into the small town and wonder how they will be received. To their surprise, the town welcomes them with open arms, especially when Duffy becomes involved with a variety of local activities while Cornelisse focuses on his medical practice. The couple ultimately strikes a positive chord with the citizens, leaving everyone forever changed for the better.
 
The Doctor's Wife has had a very successful film festival run in Duffy's native Australia, including an upcoming screening at the Mardi Gras Film Festival in Sydney. This is the first film from director Duffy, who also serves as the film's writer, producer and editor.
 
"I'm very happy Guest House Films has taken on The Doctor's Wife as I'm a big fan of the company's previous successes," said Duffy. "My film has been a huge part of my life for nearly three and a half years, so I wouldn't hand it over to just anyone."
 
In addition to the U.S. release, Guest House Films also will handle international sales for the 96-minute documentary.  Film festival programmers and international distributors interested in receiving a screener of The Doctor's Wife can contact Guest House Films at sales@guesthousefilms.com

'306'



'306', is a short gay film which Elliot London wrote, directed and produced himself was shown at ten film festivals and nominated for several awards. Set in Chicago, IL, this 11 minute short film shows a day in the life of a young man. Without a single word spoken, "306" is full of emotion and shows us exactly how Eric (played by the handsome Brian Estel) feels at all times. Beautifully shot and great acting.

In just over two months, "306" received over 130,000 hits on Vimeo and was viewed in over 155 countries in every continent of the world.


When you watch "306" you will think you know it all, but you don't. Judge for yourselves.

The nominees are in for the
84th annual Academy Awards Christopher Plummer has been nominated for Best Supporting Actor in the comedy/drama film BEGINNERS by writer/director Mike Mills.

Christopher plays Hal,
who – following 44 years of marriage – came out of the closet at age 75 to live a full, energized, and wonderfully tumultuous gay life. The upheavals of Hal’s new honesty, by turns funny and moving, brought father and son (Golden Globe Award nominee Ewan McGregor) closer than they’d ever been able to be.

'BEGINNERS' has also received a nomination for the GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Award in the category 'Outstanding Film - Wide release' earlier this month.
