Having enjoyed Jamie Babbit's de-gayifying But I'm a Cheerleader, I've been really itching to see her latest -- Itty Bitty Titty Committee. The movie is about a girl who heads towards a path of self-discovery after hooking up with radical feminists who call themselves, of course, The Itty Bitty Titty Committee. If the Cinematical reviews from James Rocchi and Erik Davis are any indication, it should be just as enjoyable as a gay-cured Ru Paul. The film is getting released on September 28, and it's getting one more bout of acclaim before it does. Titty Committee was named Best Feature this week at the 13th Philadelphia International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, adding to its previous Best Film win at SXSW.

As for the other winners... In Sickness and in Health won the Jury award for Best Documentary. Pilar Prassas' film deals with the steps and efforts of Diane Marini and Marilyn Maneely to legalize same-sex marriage, and what rights couples lose because they are not legally bound. For Diane, that meant not being able to sign the death certificate of her partner, Marilyn, when she died. The winners for best short were The Saddest Boy in the World for the male side of things, and Peace Talk for the female side of things. There was also a special award for SCION First-Time Director, which went to Jonah Markovich and his California romance, Shelter. No awards are complete without some sort of audience feedback, so the lucky Audience Awards went to The Bubble for Best Feature, Life of Reilly for Best Doc, Kali Ma for Best Short (Male) and Pariahfor Best Short (Female).
