Join me Friday for opening night of the 16th annual Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.
I'm honored to be recipient of this year's Angel Award.
After the presentation comes the North American premiere of the Brazilian film, The Way He Looks.
From the festival's website:
The Way He Looks is based on the award winning short I Don't Want To Go Back Alone. Leonardo is a blind teenager dealing with an overprotective mother while trying to live a more independent life. To the disappointment of his best friend, Giovana, he plans to go on an exchange program abroad. When Gabriel, a cute new student in town, arrives at their classroom, new feelings blossom in Leonardo making him question his plans. This sweet, charming, engaging coming-of-age story is truly a gem for audience members of all ages.
Following the screening, the festival holds an opening night party at the Albion Hotel, 1650 James Ave., from 10 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Saturday.
Tickets are $20 for the opening night screening, $40 for the screening and after-party and $25 for the party only. Click here to purchase.
