One of the stars of the upcoming “Looking” film will be in Fort Lauderdale next week to answer questions.
Frankie J. Alvarez, who plays scruffy Agustin in the HBO series about a group of gay guys living in San Francisco, is scheduled to attend a special screening of the film July 21 at the Classic Gateway Theatre, 1820 Sunrise Blvd.
The screening is presented by the MiFo LGBT Film Festival, which returns to Fort Lauderdale Oct. 7-16. Alvarez, festival officials tell SFGN, will attend next week’s screening and participate in a question and answer session following the film.
“Looking” drew lots of chatter during its brief HBO run for issues such as transgender life, inter-racial dating and office relationships. Alvarez’s character, Agustin grappled with substance abuse and being in a Serodiscordant love affair.
The screening begins at 7 p.m. To purchase tickets, visit www.mifofilm.com
