NewFest, New York’s LGBT Film Festival, Announces 2014 Lineup

NewFest, New York’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Film Festival, has announced a 2014 feature film lineup led by Karim Aïnouz’s “Futuro Beach,” the opening night presentation, with the New York premiere of Bruce LaBruce’s “Gerontophila” closing out the festival.

Also on the slate are Ben Whishaw starrer “Lilting” (pictured above), above a man struggling to connect with the Chinese-Cambodian mother of his recently deceased boyfriend;  “Blackbird,” about a band of high school seniors in a small Southern town and co-starring Mo’Nique and Isaiah Washington; “Jamie Marks Is Dead,” with Judy Greer, Liv Tyler and Cameron Monaghan appearing in the story of a high school track star haunted by a sexy teen ghost; and “Lyle,” which toplines Gaby Hoffmann in a queer twist on a “Rosemary’s Baby” story.

“In the year following spectacular LGBT civil rights advances across the country, the dynamic and fresh slate of 2014 NewFest films decisively demonstrates that artists and storytellers lead the charge in creating social change,” said Kristin Pepe, Outfest’s director of programming.

NewFest, in Partnership with L.A.’s Outfest and the Film Society of Lincoln Center, takes place July 24-29.
