LGBT Film Advocate Lewis Tice Dies At 44

Longtime LGBT cinema advocate Lewis Tice died unexpectedly yesterday at the age of 44. Tice was well known in the indie film industry for his work with LGBT festivals in San Francisco, Philadelphia, and many other cities. Via IndieWire:
Tice passionately worked in various capacities within the industry throughout his career. He launched and guided many films to success including ‘Latter Days,’ ‘Another Gay Movie’ and ‘Mysterious Skin’ for TLA Releasing, where he worked as Vice President of North American Operations at the time of his death. "Lewis has been my closest colleague for over 10 years. He was there for most of my firsts in the film business, protecting me from the sharks and introducing me to the people he knew…which was everyone. It is a devastating loss to me personally, to LGBT cinema and to all the filmmakers that relied on his kind soul and glorious laugh to get them through. This most sweet and talented man will be missed by all who had the good fortune to know and work with him," said TLA Entertainment Group CEO Derek Curl.
In a addition to promotion and festival work, Tice was the executive producer of 2010's BearCity.
