Among the screening films are:

Eating Out 3: All You Can Eat

Glenn Gaylord's Eating Out 3: All You Can Eat, featuring hunky guys, some identity mix-ups, a three-way sex scene, and Mink Stole.

Rivers Wash Through Me

John G. Young's Rivers Wash Over Me, about a gay teen New Yorker who is forced to move in with his family in the rural South.

And Then Came Lola

Ellen Siedler and Megan Siler's And Then Came Lola, a lesbian-themed version of the German hit Run, Lola, Run.

A Cross Burning in Willacoochee by Doug Sebastian

Doug Sebastian's A Cross Burning in Willacoochee, a documentary about the filmmaker and his lover's victimization in a bigoted small Georgia town in 1993.

The Boy with the Sun in His Eyes by Todd Verow

Todd Verow's The Boy with the Sun in His Eyes, in which a young man finds himself involved with a B-movie actress and her bizarre companions.

Sharon Gless in Hannah Free

Wendy Jo Carlton's Hannah Free, starring Sharon Gless in a portrait of “the lifelong love affair between an independent spirit and the woman she calls home.”

Eric Debets, Diarra Kilpatrick in Hollywood, je t'aime

Jason Bushman's Hollywood, je t'aime, a pleasant, touching, beautifully acted comedy-drama about a Frenchman who travels to Los Angeles, where he meets up with a group of assorted misfits. In the cast: Eric Debets, Chad Allen, Michael Airington, Diarra Kilpatrick.

Dream Boy by James Bolton

James Bolton's Dream Boy, the story of a shy teenager who falls in love with another teen in the rural American South. In the cast: Stephan Bender, Maximillian Roeg, and Academy Award nominee Diana Scarwid (for Inside Moves back in 1980), who played Joan Crawford's daughter in Mommie Dearest.

Shank by Simon Pearce

Simon Pearce's Shank, a British drama revolving around the life and love of a rough young thug. Written by Darren Flaxstone and Christian Martin. (Shank caused a furor of sorts after it was rejected by the bfi's London Gay & Lesbian Film Festival.)

Paul America in My Hustler by Andy Warhol

The mid-1960s Andy Warhol flicks Blow Job and My Hustler. The former is about you-know-what (but the focus is all on the receiver's face, not his genital area); the latter features an effeminate type and his hustler, played by Paul America (above), whom apparently everyone on Fire Island wants to fuck.
