Hannah Free, a lesbian feature filmed in Chicago last November, had its World Premiere at the Frameline Film Festival in San Francisco June 28, at the famed 1600-seat Castro Theatre. The sold-out show received a standing ovation. Rosie O'Donnell introduced the film for her friend Sharon Gless, who stars as Hannah. Many of the Chicago-based cast and crew attended the opening, as well as a special pre-event at Orson restaurant the night before. See www.hannahfree.com for details on upcoming screenings. A Chicago debut in September will be announced soon.
