“We are very excited about opening Out on Film with a first – a film for the ladies and then a film for the men, although anyone can enjoy either one of our opening night films,” says Jim Farmer, festival director of Out On Film. ‘The Sleeping Beauty of East Finchley is a small film, but a lovely one with a huge emotional impact. ‘Going Down in La-La Land’ is a perfect film for opening night. Casper Andreas’ films have been extremely popular at Out On Film (including ‘The Big Gay Musical’ and last year’s Audience Award winner for Best Comedy ‘Violet Tendencies’) and we all feel this is his best one. It’s based on the very popular novel by Andy Zeffer.”
They also announced the festival will close with the first Atlanta screening of the acclaimed “Judas Kiss” starring Charlie David, Richard Harmon, Timo Descamps and Sean Paul Lockhart (aks Brent Corrigan).
Some if the other films playing during the festival which runs from runs September 29 – October 6 at the Midtown Art Cinema include: “This is What Love in Action Looks Like,” “E-Cupid,” “Leave it on the Floor,” “Cho Dependent,” and “Mary Lou.” The full schedule will be available on approximately August 15. www.outonfilm.org
