internationally, highlighting the diversity of gay, lesbian,
bisexual, transsexual and transgendered film and video making in
documentary, shorts, features and installations.

Eternal Summer by Leste Chen. Also included in the series was the
10th anniversary screening of Wong Kar-Waiâs Happy Together and the
shorts program Hammered Down: East Asian Shorts. The 2007 edition of
the festival also inaugurated two new sidebars: The Outsiders for
experimental and cutting edge works and Guilty Pleasures for
entertaining film and television.
The Festival also featured the guest curated programs Back Alley
Jukebox and our annual showcase of trans artists in TSTGISGQDK/Q2S...
