QCinema is partnering with Fort Worth’s Modern Art Museum to present the May installment of QCinema’s Double Take, a three-month series featuring award-winning and audience favorite films from QCinema’s annual LGBT international film festival held every October during Tarrant County Gay Pride Week. May’s Double Take, BFFs, won two awards last October at Q16 — Best Comedy Feature and Audience Choice.
BFFs, directed by Andrew Putschoegl, stars Andrea Grano and Tara Karsian as Kat and Samantha, best friends who decide to pretend to be lesbian partners, just to have a relaxing, all-expenses-paid weekend getaway at a nice couple’s retreat for the “Closer to Closeness” weekend. Only problem is, spending all that time around real couples fighting to save their relationships in intensive workshops makes Kat and Samantha begin to rethink their own relationship as the line between friends and lovers begins to blur.
The film screens at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 9, at The Modern, 3200 Darnell St. Tickets are $8 for general admission, $6 for Modern Reel members and free for QCinema sustaining members; available at Tickets to the City.
