_ SUNDAY

3pm : FENTON BAILEY & RANDY BARBATO: FROM TAMMY FAYE TO TOTALLY GAY...
Guests: Fenton Bailey & Randy Barbato

Award-winning film and television directors/producers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato founded World of Wonder Productions in 1991, some time after they met at NYU Film School. Champions of the misunderstood, the two have grown their company from the idea that "today's marginal is tomorrow's mainstream." Along with this year's documentary "Inside Deep Throat," (Sundance Premieres) the pair have been showcased at Sundance in past years with "The Eyes of Tammy Faye" and "Party Monster."

Queer Lounge sits down with Bailey and Barbato, looking back on their filmmaking careers - and looking ahead at what's in store. Join us for a fun-filled retrospective on the highs and lows of one of the most cutting edge duos in Hollywood.

_ MONDAY

11am : SAVING FACE
Guests: Alice Wu, Joan Chen, Michelle Krusiec, Lynn Chen

Love complicates all…but some more than others. Wil, a 28-year-old medical resident living in Manhattan, is not out to her widowed, traditional Chinese-American mother, Ma. When Wil falls in love with Vivian, her efforts to hide her secret from gossipy neighbors and relatives gets even more complicated when Ma moves in with an astonishing secret of her own-she's pregnant and won't reveal the father.

Join writer/director Alice Wu and actors Joan Chen, Michelle Krusiec and Lynn Chen to discuss the making of this latest gem of a dramedy from Sony Pictures Classics and playing in Sundance's American Spectrum about a mother and daughter who discover they have a lot in common in the secrets they keep and their ultimate desire to "save face."

1pm : A CONVERSATION WITH DON ROOS
Host: Dennis Hensley, Guest: Don Roos

Join prolific director/screenwriter, Don Roos, for a look at his career in film. Starting as a screenwriter, Roos, (Single White Female, Boys on the Side) made the leap to director with his critically acclaimed feature debut, "The Opposite of Sex," starring Christina Ricci followed by "Bounce" with Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow. His latest offering, "Happy Endings," is another well-cast ensemble piece that takes a wry and painfully funny look at contemporary life and family. Happy Endings is the Opening Film at Sundance and stars Lisa Kudrow, Laura Dern, Jesse Bradford, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Tom Arnold and Bobby Cannavale.

_ TUESDAY

11am : QUEER MOVIE MARKETING MANIA
Guest: Jenni Olson

Film historian and filmmaker Jenni Olson ("The Joy of Life" in Sundance Frontier), presents a colorful crash-course in queer film history via a selection of posters from her new book, The Queer Movie Poster Book (Chronicle Books) as well as clips from her new vintage LGBT movie trailer DVD, Homo Promo (Strand Releasing). Join us for this entertaining look back at the olden days of LGBT cinema!

1.30pm : GAY REPUBLICANS: THE MOVIE

Last year, the Log Cabin (gay) Republicans emerged from relative obscurity, only to find themselves centered in the national spotlight. The President's opposition to gay marriage put them at the forefront of one of the most hotly contested elections in years. But it also opened schisms that challenged the very identity of the Log Cabin itself. Gay Republicans were forced to examine themselves to decide what was more important -- being gay or being Republican?

Director Wash Westmoreland chronicled the journey of the gay Republicans, following four members of the organization as they grappled with their own decision as to who they would support. His film "Gay Republicans" won the audience award for best documentary at last year's AFI Film Festival and aired on Trio during election season. Join Westmoreland as he shows clips and reflects on this stereotype-shattering, gut wrenching portrait of an organization in turmoil.

3pm : I WANT MY GAY TV
Host: Mike Goodridge
Guests: Mark Reinhart (here!), Frank Olson (Q Television Network), Tim Ramirez (LOGO), Anna La Choca (free-lancer for Pink TV)

Now we're raising the bar even higher. A new wave of gay television networks is converging on the entertainment industry. Find out what's in store from here!, Q Television Network, LOGO, and France's Pink TV. What are they programming? Where can you find them on your television dial? And most of all, what do they want from you? Journalist Mike Goodridge sits down with representatives from the four networks

_ WEDNESDAY

12noon : THE EDUCATION OF SHELBY KNOX

Shelby Knox has a story to tell. Just a few years ago, at the age of 15, she began to question everything she'd been taught as a conservative Southern Baptist. As her identity grew more tied to liberal ideologies and feminism, she took on the uncanny role of a leader for sex education and gay rights in Lubbock, Texas.

Shelby joins producers Marion Lipschutz, Rose Rosenblatt, and others featured in the powerful film "The Education of Shelby Knox" (Sundance Documentary) for a look back at the making of the film and the transformation of Shelby to the empowered, independent woman she has become.

This year, Lucas adds the title "director" to his resume with "The Dying Gaul" (Sundance Dramatic Competition), the story of a screenwriter who accidentally finds himself tangled in a dangerous relationship with a woman and her husband. The film includes stars Patricia Clarkson, Campbell Scott, and Peter Sarsgaard.

Join Lucas and producer George VanBuskirk for a conversation about the making of "The Dying Gaul." How did Lucas make the transition from screenwriter to director? What's next for this creative duo?
