FORT LAUDERDALE – Producers of the 4th Annual Fort Lauderdale Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (FLGLFF) have announced a line up of six documentary films to be showcased at this year’s event. The documentaries follow the journeys of gay, lesbian, and transgendered protagonists, including an accomplished jazz musician. Presented by HBO Latin America, the FLGLFF will spotlight 19 feature films and 17 short films from October 4 to 7.
“In just four short years, this film festival has grown to become not only a community event, but also an event that attracts film enthusiasts from all over the country,” said Franc Castro, executive director of FLGLFF. “The documentaries that were chosen this year were selected with much pride and enthusiasm, and we’re confident our audiences will be enlightened and inspired by the depth and scope of the stories they tell.”
Ranging from a locally-produced film to one shot on location in the Republic of Uganda, Castro says that this year’s documentary selection is diverse and rich in content. New for 2012, the FLGLFF host theater is the historic Classic Gateway Theatre. In addition, moviegoers will be able to purchase cocktails during all screenings. Tickets are now available for FLGLFF members, and will be available for the general public beginning September 10.
