Director Steve M. Kelly and Screenwriter Simon Fantauzzo Exclusive Video Interview CITY RATS

     February 12, 2009


Written by Steve ‘Frosty’ Weintraub



Another of the many interviews I did while at this year’s Slamdance/Sundance Film Festivals was with Director Steve M. Kelly and Screenwriter Simon Fantauzzo for their new movie “City Rats”. The film premiered at this year’s Slamdance and it’s about eight people living in London and how their lives are interconnected.



Anyhow, the day after the film premiered I got to speak with both of them at the Queer Lounge on Main Street and they talked about how they started working together, how “City Rats” was made, and they talked a lot about why this film is different and worth your time.



As of now, I’m unsure of a domestic release date, but if you live in the United Kingdom, Steve said the film will be coming out in April.



Finally, a big thank you to Annie and everyone at the Queer Lounge for making this interview happen.
