The 17th annual North Carolina Gay and Lesbian Film Festival will open Friday, Aug. 10, with a performance by Emmy-winning comedian and bestselling author Kathy Griffin and will continue with well over 100 films over 10 days.
Griffin will perform Friday at the Durham Performing Arts Center, and the films – 28 feature films, three documentary features, three documentary shorts and 96 short films – will be shown on several screens at the Carolina Theatre, 309 W. Morgan St.
The festival will showcase a record number of films from the U.S. and around the globe that reflect the many voices of the gay, lesbian, bixesual and transsexual community. A number of special events will complement the films, including NCGLFF Family Day with face painters, storytellers and other activities for kids; a filmmakers brunch; a concert by singer-songwriter Matt Albert and a “Grease” sing-along.
