Outflix Film Festival Announces Lineup

Posted By on Fri, Aug 2, 2013 at 4:43 PM

Who knew this would be the late summer and early fall of Divine in Memphis? A few weeks after the late cult legend drag queen appears at the Brooks Museum in John Waters' Pink Flamingos, she'll be featured in the documentary portrait I Am Divine, screening as part of the annual Outflix International LGBTQ Film Festival at Malco's Ridgeway Cinema Grill.

The lineup for this year's Outflix Festival, which runs September 6th through 12th, was released today.

In addition to I Am Divine, a few other potential standouts:

Bridegroom: A doc about a California man barred from his partner's funeral.

Any Day Now: Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt play a gay couple in the 1970s fighting a biased legal system for custody of an abandoned teenager who's come to live with them.

Continental: A documentary about a New York City bathhouse in the early ’70s.

Valentine Road: A documentary that looks into a 2008 murder at a California middle school.

Hot Guys with Guns: A re-imagining of the buddy cop formula that makes the standard odd couple ex-boyfriends.

A preview party for the festival, at Evergreen Theatre on Thursday, August 29th, will feature the screening of Interior. Leather Bar., a 60-minute feature co-directed by and co-starring James Franco that speculates about missing material from the landmark ’70s gay-themed film Cruising.

We'll have an expanded preview of the festival closer to its opening.
