BEN MCCARTHY’S PICKS
It’s Judy -- is there anything else to say about it? It isn’t like any thing I’ve seen about Judy and the energy in the theater will be electric.
Yea - it’s had some controversy. But don’t judge it before you’ve seen it. And...don’t take it so seriously. It is a comedy set in 2006 -- we’re ahead of the characters. :D
Ok - not only because of its name...it's a relatable rom-com with some really sweet, funny moments.
A very timely look at what it is like for LGBTQ refugees coming to America and the obstacles they must go through.
Ok - this is the first film we officially booked for the festival. It is an incredible look at trans high school athletes.
If you’ve seen FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO, you must see this. It rips your heart out just a bit, but gently puts it right back in place feeling optimistic. Centered on conversion therapy and transgender issues relating to religious beliefs.
Firstly, I was a choir nerd. Guilty. Secondly, I grew up in the south. It is a surprising documentary featuring some beautiful music from San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus.
Not your typical. Quirky but high intelligent. Leather daddy. Just see it.
A true masterpiece. One of my favorite films of the year and really take you on an incredible journey. Its sexy, its romantic. Don’t miss it.
Ok - so I am not ashamed to say I laughed, cried, and awed...out loud...in public...at a coffeeshop while watching this film. It is a gem of a gay rom-com with very relatable characters and stories.
I mean, what is not to love about a ma and pa gay porn shop? Ok, truthfully, this film will tug at your heartstrings as it follows the story and history of the Mason Family and their struggles and successes.
