Q Cinema, Fort Worth’s gay and lesbian film fest,  moved its major multi-day festival event to the fall last year (it’ll return Oct. 9–12), but that doesn’t mean it has given up on a spring fling. The first-ever Lesbian Film Festival will play all Saturday (with two “manly” films thrown in at the beginning and end of the program). Among the offerings:

Truth. A suspense thriller about two gay men who meet online, where one becomes obsessed with the other. Screens at noon; 94 mins.

She: tHEiR Love Story. A woman with a life-threatening disease gets a final chance at love, while a journalist researches lesbian love in Bangkok in this romantic drama. Screens at 2 p.m.; in Thai with English titles; 93 mins.

Reaching for the Moon (pictured). American poet Elizabeth Bishop discovers love in Rio in the 1950s in director Bruno Baretto’s romance starring Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings trilogy). Screens at 4 p.m.; 116 mins.

Heterosexual Jill. A “former” lesbian returns to her past lover to prove she is “recovered” in this romantic comedy from director-star Michelle Ehlen. Screens at 7 p.m.; 93 mins.

I’m a Stripper, Too! Festival favorite Charlie David directs this sequel to the I’m a Stripper TV series about male dancers on the striptease circuit. The film gets its world premiere here. Screens at 9 p.m., preceded by the short Narcissist; 42 mins.
