NEW YORK LESBIAN & GAY FILM FESTIVAL
June 11, 1997 The Public Theater

"From FAME to RENT, NYC's allure as a Mecca for theatrical ambition has been celebrated in scores of movies and plays. Victor Mignatti's BROADWAY DAMAGE is a good-natured, open- hearted addition to this list!"


SAN FRANCISCO INT'L LESBIAN & GAY FILM FESTIVAL
June 27, 1997
Roxie Theater

OUTFEST 97 Los Angeles Lesbian & Gay Film Festival
July 18, 1997 Director's Guild of America
AUDIENCE AWARD - BEST PICTURE

"A trio of friends, fresh out of college, fight for their bite of the Big Apple in this breezy romantic comedy. A talented young cast brings Victor Mignatti's first feature to life, bursting with optimism and romance."

GRAND JURY PRIZE - BEST PICTURE


EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
U.K. Premier August 11, 1997 Cameo 1

"Victor Mignatti's gentle gay comedy brings sunshine to the notoriously mean streets of New York... blowing away cynicism with a fresh breeze of old-style romance, BROADWAY DAMAGE is as soft on the eye as the pastel paintwork in Marc's kitchen. That's not to say the film doesn't have its more serious moments - infidelity, mental stress and the devastation wrecked on the city's artistic community by AIDS are all touched on. Mignatti's vision is a modern world where casual sex doesn't exclude tender kisses, proving it's possible to make a film that's sweet to the taste without piling on extra helpings of cheese."


AUSTIN GAY & LESBIAN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
August 26, 1997 Dobie Theater

REEL AFFIRMATIONS VII
Washington DC's Seventh Int'l. Gay & Lesbian Film Festival
Opening Night Selection October 16, 1997 Embassy Theater

"Rupert Everett and Julia Roberts only wish they could have co- starred in this very romantic comedy! A well-written, wonderfully acted, lusciously shot tale."


IMAGE OUT
The 5th Annual Rochester Lesbian & Gay Film & Video Festival
October 20, 1997 Little Theater

"Marc, Robert and Cynthia. Remember their names... They're gonna live forever!"


PUERTO RICO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
November, 1997

"An intoxicating romantic comedy, which is a song of love for New York. That the story's leading characters are gay, and that it is a gay love story, is something that comes down quite naturally, not like an element in some political agenda or forced message. BROADWAY DAMAGE is simply enchanting no matter what your sexual orientation.""A hugely enjoyable romantic comedy."
