Out on Film, Atlanta's LGBT film festival, today announced the complete line-up for this year's festival. More than 50 films from around the world will be shown during the eight day festival.
“We are thrilled at what we consider to be one of the strongest line-ups in Out On Film history, with award-wining films, lots of premieres, guests and plenty of local flavor,” said Jim Farmer, festival director of Out On Film, via a media release.
Organizers previously announced a double feature -- “The Sleeping Beauty of East Finchley” and “Going Down in La-La Land” -- will open the week-long festival while “Judas Kiss” will close the week.
Other highlights include “Cho Dependent,” the Margaret Cho performance filmed here in Atlanta at the Tabernacle; “Wish Me Away,” about first out mainstream country music singer Chely Wright; “Eating Out: The Open Weekend,” the latest installment in the raunchy comedy series; “The Night Watch,” based on the novel by Sarah Waters; and “This is What Love in Action Looks Like,” a documentary about Zach Stark, who made headlines in 2005 at age 16 when he blogged about coming out and being sent to an “ex-gay” therapy program.
The festival also features several films, including “Wish We Were Here,” “Through the Eyes of the AIDS Storm: Jesse Peel” and “There’s My Nun,” that address HIV and were chosen to mark the epidemic’s 30th anniversary.
