Invisible

Contemporary country music is finally coming out of the closet. The contributions of lesbian singer-songwriters are generally not the first thing that come to mind in the arena of country music, but some of the greatest hits in the genre are the work of gay women writing, producing, and persevering in an extremely traditional and corporate industry that requires most to keep their authentic selves secret for fear of committing career suicide.

Fun In Girls Shorts

Light hearted shorts exploring femme romance and other adventures.

Total Running Time – 90 minutes

Rebel Dykes

We were very politically aware, but we were also very naughty!” What better summation of the sexy, gritty, raw-and-rollicking experience of the London late-1980s dyke community, lovingly depicted in Harri Shanahan and Siân Williams’ new documentary REBEL DYKES. From Peace Camps, to the lesbian S&M club Chain Reaction, to the passing of Clause 28, REBEL DYKES cleverly mixes vintage footage, interviews, and animated recreations to illustrate an explosive time of sex, culture, and politics.

Foreign Bodies

This collection of shorts will titillate and provoke as we travel the globe in search of foreign bodies.

Total Running Time – 98 minutes

Bliss

In one of the queer standouts at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival, two sex workers act upon their instincts rather than their rationale as they begin a sensual affair outside the walls of the brothel where they’re both employed. Years of experience in the trade have taught Sascha (a spellbinding Katharina Behrens) not to mix business and pleasure, but something about the new girl at work, Maria (a mesmerizing Adam Hoya), allows Sascha to envision a fresh, new beginning for them both. Maybe it’s their instant attraction and palpable chemistry, or maybe it’s Maria’s openness and willingness to explore these shared feelings which give Sascha permission to try again.

Boy Meets Boy

Set in one memorable day during an unexpected brief romance in Berlin, Boy Meets Boy is a love letter to everything that can happen between two strangers. For Johannes, white and German, and Harry, Black and British, a shared kiss in a nightclub leads to a day spent ambling through the urban landscape.

Workhorse Queen

Perhaps you’ve already met Mrs. Kasha Davis. She’s a stylish, witty 1960s housewife in a vibrant cocktail dress! She’s also the drag persona of Ed Popil, a telemarketing manager in Rochester, New York. In this fascinating doc, you’ll join Kasha (and Ed) on a glamorous, sobering journey through the highs and low of today’s ultra-competitive drag landscape.

Poppy Field

A revealing, tightly wound drama hailing from Romania, POPPY FIELD is the study of one man’s struggle for self-acceptance in the face of losing everything he has.

No Straight Lines: The Rise of Queer Comics

From TOM OF FINLAND to DYKES TO WATCH OUT FOR, comics and zines have been firmly embedded in queer culture since before Stonewall, through the AIDS epidemic, and continuing through today’s modern obsession with superheroes. But this deeply queer artform finally gets its true moment in the limelight thanks to Peabody Award winner Vivian Kleiman’s extensive documentary that explores over 70 years of history.

Minyan

Sensual, honest, and deeply compassionate, MINYAN tells a coming-of-age tale that’s so rich with specifics and heartfelt emotion that it feels not just fresh but vital. This brilliant narrative debut from writer/director Eric Steel (producer of JULIE AND JULIA with Meryl Streep and Martin Scorsese’s BRINGING OUT THE DEAD) follows one young man’s exploration of family, love, sexuality, and faith.

Mascarpone

This sexy, romantic drama from Italy looks at love through the lens of food: lush, delectable, and sometimes maddening.

This warm-hearted dramedy, which premiered to much acclaim at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival is filled with a parade of delectable Italian men and mouth-watering baked treats, which will leave audiences exclaiming, “Brava!”
