Atlanta Film Festival packed with LGBT fare opens March 15
Organizers behind Atlanta's annual LGBT film festival, Out on Film, today announced the programming for this year's fest.
Out on Film takes place Oct. 4-11 at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema, with some screenings taking place at the Phillip Rush Center.
“We are thrilled at this year’s schedule, which has award-winning films, guests, new voices and plenty of local flavor,” said Jim Farmer, festival director of Out On Film, via a media release.
“We have everything from James Dean to gay Mormons to Olympia Dukakis playing a lesbian to bears to gay and lesbian ballroom dancers to a ‘gayby’ to a Sundance Award winner to Coco Peru, and also deal with issues of the day such as immigration, AIDS, marriage equality, religion and illegal bar raids,” he said. “It’s also great to be able to screen some retrospective films.”
Out on Film is over but LGBT films abound in theaters this month. This week “Love Crime” opens at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinemas and “We Were Here” at the Plaza. Next week sees the openings of “Gun Hill Road,” “Dirty Girl” and “3,” and Oct. 28 brings “Toast.”
“Love Crime” opens with Christine (Kristin Scott Thomas) being flirtatious with her assistant, Isabelle (Ludivine Sagnier, awesome!), giving her wine and gifts. Neither woman is exclusively lesbian because both sleep with men — the same man (Patrick Mille as Philippe) in one instance, though not at the same time. Isabelle even asks Philippe what Christine’s like in bed.
Things turn deadly, but you’re better off not knowing what to expect. Just let the story unfold deliciously, because you’re in the capable hands of the late Alain Corneau, channeling Alfred Hitchcock.
