London Gay and Lesbian Film Festival 2005

The London Gay and Lesbian Film Festival runs March 30- April 13th. Opening film is:

Prey for Rock & Roll (USA, 2003), starring the queen of gender bending, Gina Gershon. (USA, 2004)

Mysterious Skin by Greg Araki (USA, 2004) closes, which had its world premiere in the Horizontal section at Venice 2004.

One of the largest gay and lesbian film festivals, the London event tries to accord equal representation for the latest films by gays and lesbians. US/UK films predominate the selection, and there is also a world cinema category.

Selection includes excellent experimental shorts/feature by Maria Klonaris/Katerina Thomadaki--Chutes. Désert. Syn (1983-85) (France, 2004)shown with the incredible Selva (2004), recently featured at a retrospective at Créteil Films de Femmes 2005. These two respected Greek filmmakers have made France their home since the Greek junta of 1974.
Moustache (Australia, 2004)- won the public prize for best international short at Créteil 2005.
Tropical Malady (Thailand, 2004) somes straight from the official Cannes selection this year, that caused some critics to walk out because of its innovative form.

Oranges are not the only fruit (UK, 1990) - is based on the classic novel by Jeanette Winterson)and Orlando (UK, 1992)is probably one of the best renditions of the work of Virginia Woolf to date - directed by Sally Potter, UK, (though Ulrike Ottinger's Freak Orlando is brilliant). (Both in the "Telling Tales" section).

Two new films that seem promising are The Nomi Song(Germany, 2004) about Klaus Nomi who played a key role in gay underground culture in New York in the 70s, and an experimental feature shot through 16mm, Super 8 and DV camera by Jennifer Reeves The Time We Killed (USA, 2004)about the agororaphobic Brooklyn based writer Robyn Taylor. Reeves other shorts will be featured at the festival, and the filmmaker will be in attendance.

Screenings at National Film Theatre, Odeon West End, Tate Modern.

Opening Night Gala, Closing Night Gala, Centrepiece, Films European, Cinema World Cinema Fetish, Telling Tales, Rewind, Shorts, LLGFF at Tate Modern, LLGFF on Tour.
