Various locations Across Seattle
Local shorts, indie features, and national or international releases will stoke and satisfy your appetite for gay, lesbian, bi, trans, and otherwise queer-focused films, from hot romances to incisive documentaries to perverse suspense flicks. The opening film will be The Happy Prince, a portrait of the outrageous playwright and bon vivant Oscar Wilde that's directed by and stars Rupert Everett. The closing film will be Rafiki, Kenyan director Wanuri Kahiu's landmark work—banned in her home country for its "clear intent to promote lesbianism.” Other highlights will include the documentary Transmilitary, biopics of Mapplethorpe and Montgomery Clift, and the film history doc Dykes, Camera, Action! If you love queer movies and moviemakers, this festival is indispensable.
