Philadelphia QFest Reveals TBA Films15 Jul, 2009 By: Billy Gil
Philadelphia QFest, Philadelphia’s gay film festival, today announced the three features for its popular TBA slots. Out in Philly – Season 3, Make the Yuletide Gay and Shank have been picked to screen Monday, July 20. And Make the Yuletide Gay also is coming to DVD Dec. 6 (prebook Nov. 8) at $19.99, from TLA Releasing.
Out in Philly – Season 3 comprises shorts by queer filmmakers from the Philly. Actors and directors will be on hand for the screening, including Kelly Burkhardt. The program screens at 7 p.m. at the Ritz East 1.
Make the Yuletide Gay covers family and young gay love. It screens at 9:15.
Shank is a British urban street drama and screens at 9:30 p.m. at the Ritz East 2.
Carol Coombes, associate artistic Director of QFest, had this to say: “We listen to you, our audience, and fast off the starting block our first weekend were the high votes and positive feedback [for these features]. Catch them all again (with the filmmakers!!) on the evening of Monday July 20th at the Ritz East!”
The fest also revealed its Surprise Screening: Eating Out 3: All You Can Eat, scheduled for its debut at the Prince Music Theater on Sunday July 19 at 7:00pm. If you saw guilty pleasure Eating Out 2, I’m sure the third installment will be just as campy and fun.
