If they’re smart, the concession stand at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinemas will stock up on Kleenex during Atlanta’s 26th annual festival of LGBT cinema. But there are plenty of laughs between the tearjerkers, as well as suspense, beauty, empowerment, information, nostalgia and even sex; plus a whole lot of reasons to be proud of the talent and creativity in our community.
Films about French lesbians, gay historical figures and HIV med smugglers are high on our movie list for fall, but a big part of the buzz is what’s shaping up as quite likely the fiercest Best Actress race ever.
Let’s assume Oprah Winfrey will run in the supporting category for “Lee Daniels’ the Butler” and Harvey Weinstein will find a diplomatic solution to the co-lead status of Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts in “August: Osage County.”
Organizers behind Out on Film, Atlanta's annual LGBT film festival, today announced the programming for this year's fest.
Out on Film takes place Oct. 3-10 at the Midtown Art Cinema.
This year's festival, the 26th Out on Film, will open with a comedy, "G.B.F." and closes with the award-winning "Bridegroom."
Speaking on the opening film, festival organizer Jim Farmer calls this year's opener is fresh and funny.
"‘G.B.F.’ is a gay ‘Mean Girls,’" Farmer. "Not only is it fresh and funny, with great dialogue but it has a cast of up and coming young talent - Michael Willett (‘United States of Tara’), Paul Iacono (‘The Hard Times of RJ Berger’), Xosha Roquemore (‘The Mindy Project’), Sasha Pieterse (‘Pretty Little Liars’) and Andrea Bowen (‘Desperate Housewives’) - and a supporting cast that includes Megan Mullally and Natasha Lyonne.”
Out on Film, Atlanta's annual LGBTQ film festival, announced this morning it had received a grant from the Georgia Council for the Arts. Atlanta Freedom Bands, the city's gay and lesbian band, has also been awarded a grant, according to the GCA.
The funds are appropriated for fiscal year 2014.
“We are ecstatic,” Jim Farmer, Out On Film’s festival director, said today via a media release. “Not only is this a tremendous financial gift but a real boost of confidence. We are grateful for the Georgia Council for the Arts’ continued support of what we do.”
Organizers behind Atlanta's annual LGBT film festival announced today this year's festival, held Oct. 4-11, was the largest in the event's 25 year history.
Festival Director Jim Farmer praised the Atlanta community and sponsors for a successful festival.
“‘More’ was the word for 2012 – more screenings, more visiting filmmakers, more days, more patrons,” Farmer said. “From the sold-out opening night screening of ‘Gayby’ to the packed house for ‘BearCity 2’ closing night, attendance was tremendous. Our attendance on Super Saturday – Oct. 6 – was a record, with crowds beginning at 11 a.m. in the morning through our late night screening of ‘I Want Your Love.’ Our VIP lounge next day at Apres Diem was also extremely popular. We thank Atlanta for that, as well as our sponsors for making it happen.”
