Frameline 28, the 28th San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival, will run from June 17-27, 2004. The 28th edition of the San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival will delight over 80,000
attendees with nearly 80 features, including many world and US premieres,and over 150 shorts. For more info and tickets:http://www.frameline.org/festival.

Director Rose Troche, recipient of this year’s Frameline Award for outstanding film accomplishments, has much to celebrate — including the
tenth anniversary of GO FISH. Troche’s landmark directorial debut was widely considered the first cross-over lesbian art-house film, and for many viewers, seeing it was a life-changing experience.

Could ten years have passed since we first made the acquaintance of the idealistic Max (Guinevere Turner), who initially rejects Ely (V.S. Brodie) because a “granola-crunching” lesbian doesn’t quite match the image Max has in mind for a girlfriend? Max has a lot to learn — but don’t we all?

GO FISH stands the test of time for a few key reasons. The story focuses on human discourse and relationships rather than snappy plot twists and dynamic action. The black-and-white, grainy quality, under the magic of Troche’s
personal touch, evokes an engaging artistry that is as inviting as it is unobtrusive. Troche’s subtle, light-handed approach — to guide rather than pull — allows for the development of a relationship not just between thecharacters, but including the audience, too.

Nostalgia aside, this charming love story is as delightful and inspiring as ever. A timeless theme — discovering that what you want is already there — pulls our heartstrings time and time again. — Jim Norrena

Filmmaker Rose Troche will be presented with the 2004 Frameline award at this screening.
