restricted access No More Mr. Nice Gay: A Manifesto (USA, 2009)

Written at the behest of the Teddy Awards at the Berlin Film Festival, this manifesto is both a history of, and an elegy for, New Queer Cinema (a term coined by critic B. Ruby Rich). Filmmaker Todd Verow recounts the history of New Queer Cinema and decries the commercialization of queer cinema and the ways in which LGBT fi lm festivals collude in this process.
