Shine Louise Houston to Appear at Queer Women of Color Film Festival
SAN FRANCISCO — Director Shine Louise Houston, founder of Pink and White Productions, will be featured at the Queer Women of Color Film Festival in San Francisco on Sat., Jun. 11.
Houston will participate in a filmmakers roundtable discussion at 3 p.m. And later, she will be featured in "Talkin' Porn," a special presentation of a behind-the-scenes film from CrashPad.
Describing the roundtable discussion, a representative for the Queer Women of Color Film Festival said, "Costs for Hollywood films are at $1 million per finished minute and rising. The high costs of filmmaking equate to de facto censorship. Join independent queer women of color and transgender people of color filmmakers as they talk about the impact of money and the magic they invoke to create authentic images of our vulnerable communities."
At the filmmakers roundtable, Houston will be discussing her forthcoming film "Snapshot." According to Pink and White Productions, "Snapshot" is a "sex-positive queer porn production" that "draws inspiration from film classics such as Hitchcock's 'Rear Window' and Antonioni's 'Blow Up.'"
The Queer Women of Color Film Festival will begin on Fri., Jun. 10 and conclude on Sun., Jun. 12. The event is free and will be held at San Francisco's Brava Theater.
