Out on Film releases full schedule for Atlanta LGBT fest

Other highlights include “Cho Dependent,” the Margaret Cho performance filmed here in Atlanta at the Tabernacle; “Wish Me Away,” about first out mainstream country music singer Chely Wright; “Eating Out: The Open Weekend,” the latest installment in the raunchy comedy series; “The Night Watch,” based on the novel by Sarah Waters; and “This is What Love in Action Looks Like,” a documentary about Zach Stark, who made headlines in 2005 at age 16 when he blogged about coming out and being sent to an “ex-gay” therapy program.

The festival also features several films, including “Wish We Were Here,” “Through the Eyes of the AIDS Storm: Jesse Peel” and “There’s My Nun,” that address HIV and were chosen to mark the epidemic’s 30th anniversary.
