Boston LGBT Film Festival 2011

Thursday, May 5 – Sunday, May 15, 2011

With two powerhouse festivals back-to-back, the Brattle is experiencing an embarrassment of cinematic riches this spring. Now in its 27th year, the Boston LGBT Film Festival celebrates work that enertains, enriches and enlightens all audiences in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and allied communities. The annual festival screenings showcase international, US, and local film, video, and other media, fostering a greater sense of awareness and community among audiences from all walks of life.

Highlights from this year’s Brattle lineup include the new film from acclaimed Israeli director Eytan Fox (The Bubble, Yossi & Jagger), a stylish lesbian vampire movie from Germany, a slew of intriguing documentaries, and several shorts programs. You are also invited to attend some of the many special events happening as part of this year’s Festival, including the opening night screening at the Museum of Fine Arts on Thursday, May 5. This year’s opening night event features the New England premiere screening of Tom Tykwer’s new film, “3”, co-presented by The Goethe-Institut Boston and Europeans in Boston.
