Conway Pride premieres at Outflix!

From the Memphis Flyer:

Ouflix season officially begins tonight with a preview party at Crosstown Arts’ 430 N. Cleveland space. They’ll be previewing this year’s lineup and presenting three works for their new short film competition. One of the shorts, “Conway Pride”, is by filmmaker Stephen Stanley, who made his first films in Memphis before embarking on a career that has taken him to Hollywood and, currently, France. He made “Conway Pride” while teaching film at the University of Central Arkansas. It tells the history of a colorful LBGT couple who organized the first gay pride march in the rural college town, and the fight to save their house after they passed away. The free party begins at 6:30 PM tonight, but bring your dollars to buy passes for the main Outflix festival September 7-13.
