The annual San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival will be getting underway on June 16 and will continue through June 29. Since last year, the festival is called Frameline and this year, its 29th, the festival’s director, Michael Lumpkin, decided to “give props” – finally – to the transgender and bisexual communities. “We needed to do something to strengthen the diversity and further the visibility of our community,” he said. Among the 268 films from 33 countries are the world premiere of WOW’s documentary, TransGeneration, that follows four transgender college students over one year, and Transamerica, starring Desperate Housewives‘ Felicity Huffman as a woman undergoing gender reassignment surgery.
This just in. Frameline will be showing WOW’s heartwarming doc Tammy Faye: Death Defying at 6:30PM at the Castro on June 25. And the dynamic gay icon herself will be present at the screening.
