This is a celebration and exploration of gay and lesbian films and filmmakers. "Independent Queer Cinema" collects 100 of film critic Kramer's reviews and interviews that celebrate the latest "queer wave" of actors, writers and directors. These are films and filmmakers to be discovered and discussed - from the independent American hit, "Kissing Jessica Stein" and the provocative foreign gem "Come Undone", to tantalising insights from Stephen Fry and Tilda Swinton. "Independent Queer Cinema" is a valuable reference guide as well as an entertaining compilation of Kramer's astute reviews and interviews. There's no shortage of great gay and lesbian films. "Independent Queer Cinema" is a definitive guide to the films and personalities that deserve more attention, more respect and more success, with a special focus on the foreign and low-budget gems that can slip past without a second look. Kramer also talks with filmmakers and actors who aren't afraid to explore gay male sexuality on screen, including queer directors whose films feature mainly straight characters, straight filmmakers who tackle queer subject matter, new queer filmmakers whose work has - so far - had very little theatrical exposure.

"The essential reference book about modern lesbian and gay themed cinema. Kramer peppers this superior tome with the kind of dishy details that will keep readers turning the page." - Damion Dietz "This comprehensive volume covers several years of groundbreaking gay cinema, along with insightful interviews with the stars and directors.. Kramer seems to mention things I had never noticed, making me want to see many of them again!" - Michael Luongo"
