Body Image Film Festival Makes Private Parts Public

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 6, 2011) - Could you spot the 'perfect' penis if you saw it? Does Female Sexual Dysfunction really exist or is it a cheating partner taking the "Oh" out of many women's orgasms? The 2nd annual BITE ME! Toronto International Body Image Film & Arts Festival, running July 8 – July 10 at the National Film Board, has some answers. "Everybody has a story. BITE ME! explores challenges and redefines how we and others perceive our bodies through experiences of the provocative and the every day," says festival director and founder, Jill Andrew. "Moving beyond pathologizing bodies, our festival explores what our bodies do for us, how our bodies…our identities come to matter in our very diverse and complex lives," says Andrew. Opening the festival is award- winning Canadian filmmaker Katrin Bowen's Amazon Falls. Other compelling features include GEN SILENT and The KCLPAS Story both exploring the experiencing of LGBTQ seniors facing discrimination at the hands of their care providers; Africa Rising, Pink Saris and Confessions of a Superhero.
