Plane tickets and online shopping are keeping me in the house this weekend (kidding…not kidding). So with a click on a mouse, I renewed my Netflix membership (which doesn’t count as shopping) and opened a new world of LGBT films.
Of course, I picked the movie that I had been ignoring on Amazon Prime for the last two months (don’t judge me). I am so glad I did. I immediately fell in love with Cloudburst staring Olympia Dukakis, Ryan Douchette, and Brenda Fricker.
The K Word is in full Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival effect again this year. There are a lot of great films and documentaries showing this year but we are extremely excited about the MGLFF premiere of the short film Clean Hands.
“Clean Hands,” a dramatic short film about a marriage tested by a dying parent and conflicting beliefs, debuted at the 2014 Pan African Film Festival and is currently making the festival rounds. We are very happy to have had the opportunity to chat with Director Caryn K. Hayes.
The reports are in and the 11th annual Outfest Fusion was a great success. Every year Outfest Fusion, showcases LGBT film by people of color. The festival features 30 short and feature-length films from around the world that reflect a wide array of LGBT stories and parties. Fusion gives participants an opportunity to see reflections of their own experience and to deepen their understanding of other LGBT communities of color. We are still very bitter that we didn’t attend but we figured a week was more than enough time to get over it.
The opening night boasted a screening of Patrik Ian Polk’s Blackbird. Check out some of the pictures below… we aren’t in any of them *side eye*
It’s the weekend woo hoo! Andddd we have officially begun the countdown to the 16th annual Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, so prepare for lesbian cinematic overload.
As you know one of our favorite segments each year is the Women’s Short Program. While we wait with bated breath to see what is selected this year, we have to share one of @kristiweb‘s all time favorite lesbian short films. The Ten Rules. It was the short film that led to Logo’s freaking hilarious show Exes and Ohs.
