@bummingcigsfilm – “Bumming Cigarettes” *A Short Film


Bumming Cigarettes is a short film about a brief and intimate meeting between a young Black lesbian woman who is in the process of taking an HIV test and a middle aged Black Gay HIV Positive man. Coming off of the devastation of a bad breakup with a girlfriend, Vee musters up the courage to go and take an HIV test to put her worst fears to rest. What she experiences during her trip to a local clinic is much more than she expects while sharing a cigarette with a stranger, Jimmy during the 10 minutes that she awaits her test results. This film explores tough issues that persons living with HIV/AIDS may encounter such as the loss of intimacy with loved ones while also encouraging awareness around HIV/AIDs testing and the way we treat persons living with the disease.

We completed principal photography on Bumming Cigarettes late October 2011 and we are now trying to raise raising $5,000+ through Kickstarter to complete the film, host a premiere screening in Philadelphia, PA, and get the film on the film festival track for the rest of the year.

Here’s a breakdown of what we need to finish this film:

Color Correction * Fine Edit * Final Sound Design & Audio Mix * Voice Over Recording * Mastering of our HD CAM film master exhibition copy PAL/NTSC for film festival submissions * Film Festival Submission Fees * Printing of Promotional Materials (Posters, Flyers, press kits, etc.)

***If we do not reach our goal of $5,000 during this campaign or we do not get any funds to use towards completion of the film. Kickstarter is an ALL or NOTHING fundraising model.

An assured feature debut from one-time LLGFF programmer Campbell X, this multi-cultural, polysexual tale of desire in contemporary London, feels fresh and real. Meet JJ, the black lesbian stud who looks and acts like an old-fashioned stone butch dyke and her best friend, a promiscuous, sharp-tongued, gay man, Seb, who also helps assist her work as a photographer. They are an attractive odd couple, outside the imaginings of most LGBT filmmakers.READ MORE HERE
