Out on Film celebrates queer cinema

Going Down in La-La Land

Atlanta’s 24th annual Out on Film features more than 50 films from around the world, highlighting a diverse selection of cinematic styles and LGBT lives.

“We are thrilled at what we consider to be one of the strongest line-ups in Out On Film history, with award-wining films, lots of premieres, guests and plenty of local flavor,” Jim Farmer, festival director of Out On Film, says via a media release.

The festival gets underway with a pre-event on Wednesday, Sept. 28, focusing on a local hero of HIV advocacy. Out on Film officially kicks off Thursday, Sept. 29, and runs through Thursday, Oct. 6.

A double feature — “The Sleeping Beauty of East Finchley” and “Going Down in La-La Land” — opens the festival while “Judas Kiss” closes the week.
