For years, Q Cinema’s annual four-day festival of gay and lesbian films has taken place in June, but this year, the group moved its 15th festival to the autumn, to coincide with Tarrant County Pride, running Oct. 10–13. Here’s the line-up of major screenings and events:
Opening night: Del Shores’ filmed stage version of his play Southern Baptist Sissies, with Shores and co-star/producer Emerson Collins, pictured, in attendance, opens the weekend.
Friday, Oct. 11: Submerge, an Australian film that explores Gen Y lesbians; I’m a Stripper, Charlie David’s documentary of, well, you can figure it out; Birthday Cake, a follow-up to last year’s hit Groom’s Cake.
Saturday, Oct. 12: Breaking Through, a documentary that features Fort Worth Councilman Joel Burns; Test, a film set in San Francisco at the height of the AIDS epidemic; the shorts program; and a QLive performance of the play Standing on Ceremony, which played at the Out of the Loop Fringe Festival last spring.
Sunday, Oct. 13: The films Meth Head, I Am Divine and G.B.F. close out the festival.
All showings are at the Rose Marine Theatre. You can get tickets and learn more about the festival here.
