iPOP at the 2004 Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

by Jonny Leahan/indieWIRE

indieWIRE contributor Jonny Leahan ventured to South Florida recently for the Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, full of sunshine, sand, screenings, and stars. He caught up with folks from films including "Key West: City of Colors," "Straight Jacket," "Laughing Matters" and many other films. Not to mention some of the festival's mixologists and special visitors.
