"Queer City" is a feature documentary exploring the lives of a diverse group of LGBT New Yorkers in the rapidly-changing City that helped give birth to the modern gay movement. Cutting across lines of generation, ethnicity, community, and orientation, the film weaves together a selection of intimate stories, told in the subjects' own words, to offer a compelling portrait of queer American lives. Directed by Draper Shreeve

 The Boys' Short Films compilation can only be described as passionate, sexy and unexpected. From a cross-cultural confection of snarky Almodovarian camp to the ‘no mans land’ between sexual drive and the desire for love.- Andre Hereford, Film Festival Programming Team Member

Liz in "Liz In September"  is terminally ill, but nothing stops her from her womanizing and partying habits. When Liz meets a female visitor who (unbeknownst to her & Liz's friends) has lost her son to cancer, Liz is dared by friends to seduce her. Liz and the woman form an unexpecting relationship and assist each other in leaving a legacy behind. (Based on Jane Chamber's classic lesbian play, "Last Summer At Bluefish Cove.") - Nicole DiFabio, Film Festival Programming Team Lead. Directed by Fina Torres

in "Like You Mean It", sometimes, even sunny, warm L.A. can succumb to an icy chill, or so it seems in writer-director Phillipp Karner’s quietly moving drama about an actor struggling with his career, his relationship and with depression. Karner also stars, as Mark, who’s estranged from his family back home in Austria and finding himself increasingly unhappy with his perfectly nice musician boyfriend, Jonah (well-played by Denver Milord), and their perfectly pleasant domestic life. When Mark and Jonah’s friends, a soon-to-be-married couple, announce that they’re taking a “hiatus” from their relationship, Mark starts to openly question his and Jonah’s future together, plunging them both into a state of confusion that therapy and anti-depressants can only begin to address. The emotional rollercoaster is so recognizably human, and in this portrayal never less than authentic, thanks in particular to the raw, vulnerable performances by the two leads. Amid the keenly observed details of a flatlining romance, the film also slips in several funny, knowing jabs at actors, auditioning and the Hollywood horse race, all while maintaining its understated mood and style with a powerful story of a man determined to feel life at its fullest. - Andre Hereford, Film Festival Programming Team Member. Directed by Philipp Karner

In "Age of Consent",  ‘Liberty is precious, so take none of your freedoms for granted’ might be the message of this Adults-Only peek inside London’s notorious gay male fetish bar The Hoist. A labyrinth of enigmatic chambers snaking through two old stone train arches, the bar opened at a time when male homosexuality was still outlawed in Britain and it has long been an oasis of erotic fantasy in a sometimes hostile environment. In this daring and informative documentary by veteran queer filmmakers Charles Lum and Todd Verow, the fantasy springs to life via sexually explicit scenes of men at play inside the Hoist, alongside engaging interviews with some of the crew and characters who populate the bar, and some choice words from leading human rights activist Peter Tatchell, who helps bring all the gay BDSM action thoughtfully into historical perspective. It’s a world that can seem intimidating to some, obscene to others, yet like sanctuary for myriad self-proclaimed freaks, deviants and dissidents alike. This charismatic portrait of the leather and fetish scene is not for the prudish, but as long as everyone’s consenting, come inside and meet the men of the Hoist.- Andre Hereford, Film Festival Programming Team Member. Directed by Charles Lum and Tom Verow.
