MGLFF Hosts Monthly Screening

The Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (MGLFF) continues its monthly film series, HBO Glow, on Tuesday, Nov. 22 with a double feature of The Grove and Mom and Dad, I Have Something to Tell You.

The Grove, a film about the National AIDS Memorial Grove in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, depicts how the community of survivors who built the restful memorial respond to plans by younger activists to construct a new monument that will be of more “significance.”  The film made its South Florida premiere during the Fort Lauderdale Gay and Lesbian Film Festival this fall.

Mom and Dad, I Have Something to Tell You is a documentary about the journeys many parents are forced to take when they children finally come out as gay or lesbian. While most previous films on the subject have taken the perspective of the person coming out, for the first time, this film takes a look at the emotions of parents. Filmmaker and Israeli television star Assi Azar will also be present to discuss the film.

The screenings will be held at the Miami Beach Cinemateque, 1130 Washington Ave., first floor. Tickets are $6.25 - $16.25 and include a cocktail reception at 7 p.m. The films will be shown at 8 p.m. followed by discussion. For tickets or more information, go to or call 877-484-8499.
