Newfest: New York LGBT Film Festival

17 Jul

NewFest

Save the Date: NewFest at BAM:  28-29 August, 2010

Provocative.  Entertaining.  Passionate. Political.  Hysterical.  Some of the most popular and talked-about movies from this year’s NewFest are coming to BAM this August (Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th).  This year’s NewFest sold more tickets than ever, so you can be sure that there will be some great films to see at BAM.
BAM’s Rose Cinema, 30 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn.

Confirmed to play:
– Audience Winner for Best Documentary, EDIE AND THEA.
The touching story of two women who met at a party in 1960’s New York and spent the next 42 years together.

Edie & Thea

– Audience Winner for Best Narrative, CHILDREN OF GOD.
Filmed in the breathtaking Bahamian islands, this love story is a  groundbreaking look at the lives of three different people and the ramifications of living in a homophobic and violently repressive nation.

Children of God

Full program and showtimes will be posted soon!  Check back at www.newfest.org for full details.
