GB Jones is a queer filmmaker and cofounder of the band Fifth Column.

Her super 8 feature film, The Lollipop Generation opens at the 2008 Images Festival.

The Lollipop Generation follows a teenage girl Georgie, who runs away from home and ends up on the street. She has a taste for lollipops and dangerous situations. The film follows Georgie and her group of friends as they engage in sex, but in public and for profit and other activities.

The film was put on hiatus for a number of reasons and finally revived after Jones was invited to do a residency at Charles Street Video which allowed her to complete the film digitally.
