FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 04 APRIL 2012

As you will have already been told, Out There magazine is proud to be presenting the UK premiere of Travis Mathews’s critically acclaimed film, “I Want Your Love” at the opening of this year’s Fringe! Film Festival.

But last week, only just after 3 days of tickets being on sale, we sold out. Thanks to the wonderful guys at the Hackney Picture House, they have bumped the mother of all blockbusters TITANIC 3D out of Screen One to make way for our screening on Thursday 12th April, so the fantastic news is that we have more tickets on sale for this amazing film at this truly alternative festival.

Set in San Francisco, this gripping drama is an unapologetically voyeuristic (yes, we’re talking un-simulated sex and real emotions) insight into the sexual and emotional interactions of a young gay man and is hailed as a turning point for gay cinema.


“We worked with Travis on our second issue and I fell in love with his queer sensibility and what he does – so very much in-line with the spirit of Out There magazine. We’re thrilled that Fringe! will be bringing him across the fly-over states and then the ‘pond’ to London to present this masterpiece”, says Out There founder Martin Perry.

 

“An intense, intimate film with a fantastic soundtrack and stunning visual beauty that will haunt you long after the final scene”, says Scott Heim, author of ‘Mysterious Skin’.


“Hell yes! I couldn't be more excited about opening Fringe with Out There magazine! Fringe! is leading the pack among a growing number of young queer festivals that feel fresh and relevant to a new generation of festival goers.” says Travis.


Tickets are on sale now for this fantastic opening to the festival.  As an added bonus, Portuguese film director Antonio da Silva will also be screening his Short, ‘Mates’.

COMPETITION: WHAT DO YOU WANT?

To celebrate the opening of Fringe! and the UK Premier, Out There is giving away 2 amazing nights stay at the beautiful SEMIRAMIS HOTEL in Athens, Greece.

To stand a chance of winning, we’re asking you to tell us what YOU want. TWEET the following phrase “I WANT YOUR…” followed by what it is you want. Don’t forget to include @fringefilmfest and @OutThereMag in the tweet to enter!
