Two college dorm mates develop more than just a typical friendship in this acclaimed yet little seen queer cinema landmark. Four years before Stonewall, Secter made this small film that portrayed a gay crush and the young men didn't commit suicide, wear drag, walk with a mince or speak with a lisp - in Hollywood that would have been suicide for the film! Winter Kept Us Warm was the first gay film ever screened at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival; and there must have been quite a fuss made when the all those beautiful college boy's naked butts appeared in the shower room scene.

"Easily the most appealing of all the North American entries at Cannes...tells simply yet subtly of an ambiguously close campus friendship between two very different young men...not only convincing but hits on an unconventional truth" - London Times
