Film Festival

  • As the Miami International Film Festival gets underway this Friday, there are several fantastic LGBT films for queer audiences to check out before the fest ends March 16.

  • LEWISBURG, W.Va. (AP) - The inaugural Appalachian Queer Film Festival has announced its lineup for later this month.

  • DAYTON (AP) — Dayton is gearing up for events celebrating the 10th anniversary of the LGBT Film Festival in October.

  • One of the most buzzed-about movies at this year's Sundance Film Festival is "Dope," a coming-of-age story about three outcasts in the inner city.

  • After two seasons as the MiFo (Miami/Fort Lauderdale) LGBT Film Festival, the 19-year-old festival adopted a new name, OUTShine, at its opening weekend in Miami.

  • The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival opens this weekend and once again features outstanding LGBT-themed shorts, documentaries and features among the hundreds of films to be screened Nov. 7 – 23 in Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Sunrise and Miramar. Most individual screenings range from $6 – 10 per ticket. A complete schedule is available at FLIFF.com.

  • People with disabilities are the largest minority group in the United States, according to the Current Population Survey. Still, despite the considerable size of this community, people with disabilities have had minimal representation in film. For three decades, the international disability film festival Superfest, which this year is being co-presented by the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University and the Lighthouse for the Blind San Francisco, has given both emerging and established filmmakers a place to present edgy and new perspectives on disability on the silver screen.

  • Edina and Patsy are back! Those larger-than-life, eternally youthful (in their own minds) and glamorous trendsetters are now starring in a wacky big screen adventure.

  • Several LGBT-interest films will be among the 160 features, documentaries and shorts screened during the 32nd annual Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF), running through Nov. 19.

  • The OUTshine Film Festival returns to Fort Lauderdale this weekend for the ninth year.

  • The Miami International Film Festival (MIFF), unspooling March 7 to 16 at various theaters, offers moviegoers the opportunity to screen several LGBT shorts, features, and documentaries. The festival also includes a tribute to actor-director John Turturro, who will receive the festival’s Career Achievement Award after a screening of his latest film, “Fading Gigolo.”(March 9, 7 p.m., at the Olympia Theater at the Gusman Center).

  • Miami Dade College's Miami International Film Festival (MIFF) takes over area screens from March 6-15, and showcases hundreds of features, shorts, and documentaries. The festival opens with the darkly hilarious comedy, “Wild Tales.” The pre-credit episode of this Argentine anthology may just be the funniest film sequence all year. The remaining five entries in “Wild Tales” are also fiendishly clever, from a woman who exacts a vicious revenge on a restaurant customer to a nasty game of one-upmanship between two drivers with road rage. The last tale, an over-the-top wedding reception featuring unspeakably bad behavior is a corker.

  • The MiFo LGBT Film Festival opens its 19th season in Miami this weekend with two world, seven North American, six East Coast and 12 Southeast premieres.

  • While most movie theaters remain shuttered during the COVID-19 pandemic, OUTshine Film Festival organizers have turned to the internet to showcase the best in new LGBT-themed features, shorts and documentaries.

  • The OUTshine Miami Film Festival, April 23 – May 2, will once again showcase the best in new LGBT-themed features, shorts and documentaries with a combination of mostly streaming and outdoor screenings.

  • Welcome to Queerly Digital, a monthly column about LGBT films and filmmakers.

  • It’s probably not fair to compare actor Andy Serkis’ directorial debut “Breathe” (Bleecker Street) with the Oscar-winning “The Theory of Everything,” but people will. Both films are based on true stories. Both films deal with young British men who develop significant disabilities in the prime of life. Both films are about the power of love and the strength of the human spirit to overcome the odds. Unfortunately, when comparing both films, it’s “Breathe” that will come up short (of breath).

  • The 2016 MiFo LGBT Film Festival opens this weekend and features more than 50 features, documentaries and short films.

  • "Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief" premiered Sunday at the Sundance Film Festival to a packed house - not with a star-studded red carpet, but with police protection.

  • PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — In "I Am Michael," a drama based on Benoit Denizet-Lewis's 2011 New York Times article "My Ex-Gay Friend," James Franco plays the part of Michael Glatze, the ex-gay friend in question.
