    WE WERE HERE is the first documentary to take a deep and reflective look back at the arrival and impact of AIDS in San Francisco. It explores how the City’s inhabitants were affected by, and how they responded to, that calamitous epidemic. Though a San Francisco-based story, WE WERE HERE extends beyond San Francisco and beyond AIDS itself. It speaks to our capacity as individuals to rise to the occasion, and to the incredible power of a community coming together with love, compassion, and determination. Filmmakers David Weissman and Bill Weber co-directed the 2001 documentary, THE COCKETTES, chronicling San Francisco’s legendary theater troupe of hippies and drag queens, 1969 – 1972. WE WERE HERE revisits San Francisco a decade later, as its flourishing gay community is hit with an unimaginable disaster.

    Fairy Tales Presentation Society

    Fairytales Presentation Society is a not-for-profit, charitable organization located in Calgary, Alberta that focuses on showcasing local and national queer artists. As our name suggests, and bylaws state; we showcase and celebrate queer artists of all artistic mediums including but not limited to film. Our artistic endeavors strive to provide a safe and respectful venue for members of all communities to celebrate queer culture. While the term queer often refers to people who are LGBTTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit and questioning), Fairytales understands queer to also include those who subscribe to culturally, politically, artistically, and otherwise alternative and innovative ways of contributing to society. We see queer as a vista, a way of looking at the world differently- with an eye towards diversity, criticality and inclusion.
