Gay Theme Films at the 15th Annual African Diaspora Film Festival

HarlemOneStop.org has published a short-list of gay-themed films to be screened at this year’s African Diaspora Film Festival. Included is How Do I Look.


How Do I Look is an award-winning documentary about the Harlem “Ball” community. This documentary feature, directed by Wolfgang Busch, has been previously screened at many Gay and Lesbian film festivals around the world, most recently at Lisboa 11 in Lisbon, Portugal. Recently, How Do I Look has begun to be picked up by “straight” film festivals. In September 2007, the 10th Anniversary Africa in the Picture Film Festival in Amsterdam featured How Do I Look. Now, to coincide with World AIDS Day on December 1, Art From The Heart Films is proud to announce that How Do I Look will be screened at the 15th Annual African Diaspora Film Festival.


With this showing at the African Diaspora Film Festival, How Do I Look will further demonstrate its growing cross-over appeal to “straight” audiences.
