Not to be missed: reviews for Out on Film

('Who's Afraid of Vagina Wolf' screens Monday, Oct. 7, at 7 p.m.)

Atlanta’s annual Out On Film festival begins with a 15-year-old being murdered for being out at school (in “Valentine Road”) and ends with a man being erased from his late partner’s life by a homophobic family (in “Bridegroom”).

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.
