Asian Film Fest screens award-winning ‘Spa Night’

SPANIGHTLast weekend, Los Angeles’ OutFest — the LGBT film festival — handed out its awards for the top movies screening there, and two went to Spa Night: A special recognition for outstanding performance by Joe Seo playing a gay Korean-American, as well as the U.S. Grand Jury Prize. If you didn’t happen to be in SoCal for the fest, though, don’t worry — you can actually see that award-winner tonight.

The Asian Film Festival of Dallas has a few days left in its fest, including a screening of Spa Night at the Angelika Film Center at Mockingbird Station tonight at 10:15 p.m.  Seo plays a closeted gay man who discovers the underground world of gay sex while working at a spa. And if you can’t make it tonight, well, you still have a few mores days of screenings of other films to entertain you.

“Wise Kids” kicks of Q Cinema’s spring series

Q Cinema’s spring multi-day festival is just around the corner, but you can get a taste of queer cinema with The Wise Kids, February’s monthly screening in Fort Worth, in Wednesday.

The coming-of-age comedy-drama — about three Church kids confronting one’s homosexuality — was an award-winner at the gay OutFest film festival last year. It’s a savvy look at Christianity confronting the real world. Tickets are $10. The screening is at Four Day Weekend Theatre at 312 Houston St. in Cowtown, starting at 8 p.m.

The other films and dates in the spring series are:

• Tomboy on March 28
