Fort Lauderdale Gay and Lesbian Film Festival – Oct. 13 to 16, 2011

Now in its third year as a stand-alone festival, the Ft. Lauderdale Gay & Lesbian Film Festival is unveiling a dynamic roster of 17 films for the 2011 season, announced Franc Castro, executive director of the festival. 

New for this year will be a gala opening night reception and film followed by a VIP after party, plus an expanded schedule of more short films, documentaries and feature films that are by, about, and for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) community and its allies.
“Everyone connected with the festival is truly excited about this year’s line-up,” Castro said.  “We’ve brought together an amazing and diverse mix of films that will appeal to the whole community.  These films will inspire, inform, entertain, and maybe even provoke, but in every case, the festival promises a wonderful time out at the movies for the entire community.”
All screenings will be held at The Manor complex, 2345 Wilton Drive, in Wilton Manors, with the exception of the Opening Night reception and screening, which will be held at Cinema Paradiso, 503 Southeast 6th Street, Fort Lauderdale.
