Meet us at the Milwaukee LGBT Film Festival!

LOGO - OKJoin PrideFest at the 29th Annual Milwaukee LGBT Film/Video Festival!

The Festival runs from Thursday, October 16 to Sunday, October 26. Complete ticket and schedule information are now available online.

Tickets are still available for the Opening Night celebration at the Oriental Theater, featuring the award-winning feature film Blackbird.  Blackbird is a must-see film, powered by triumph and tragedy, sharing the story of a high school student whose dreams of a free and fulfilling life are tempered by the realities of everyday Southern Baptist life.

We are proud to be a long-time community partner of the festival, and an active part in making these 2014 films possible:

PARTY CRASHERS AND OTHER RE-ORDERINGS:
AN EVENING OF WOMEN’S SHORTS
Femmes fatales, cat burglars, and trespassers (literally) stuck in the closet populate tonight’s program of shorts revealing a roster of women in situations somewhat compromising.

NOT, LIKE, A LIFETIME MOVIE MOMENT:
AN EVENING OF MEN’S SHORTS
Rachet poets; cinephilic go-betweens; fan fiction writers; horror movie fans coated in fake blood; one particularly annoying elephant, and more in this evening of shorts films and videos.

CATEGORIAL REFUTATION: AN EVENING OF TRANS* SHORTS
Definitions claimed and ignored in this energetic conflation of characters engaging with disclosure, athletics, dating, postmodernism, robots (possibly), mothers, trans* history, and a bling bedecked walker as vehicles for getting where and who you need to be.

THE WAY HE LOOKS (Hoje Eu Quero Voltar Sozinho)
(Daniel Ribeiro, Brazil, in Portuguese with English subtitles, 95min., 2014)
A beguilingly sweet story of high school romance centered on the resourceful and sturdy Leonardo, who always has to negotiate bullies and also overprotective parents overly worried about how their blind son negotiates the world. But Leonardo has being blind down: it is his crush on new student Gabriel that confounds him.
