G.B.F. ('Gay Best Friend') to open Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival; James Franco on Saturday

The 15th annual Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival opens Friday night with a screening of G.B.F. (Gay Best Friend) at Gusman Center in downtown Miami:

The fight for supremacy between a school’s most popular girls takes an unexpected turn when Tanner (Michael J. Willett) becomes its first openly gay student. As they race to bag the big trend in fashion accessories, the Gay Best Friend, Tanner, must choose between skyrocketing popularity and the friends he is leaving behind. Darren Stein (Jawbreaker) returns with another comic send-up of high school clique culture, including memorable cameos by Megan Mullally and Natasha Lyonne.

After the screening, a Q&A with Darren Stein, Andrea Bowen, Michael J. Willet and others in the film.

Movie star James Franco, whose film Interior. Leather Bar will be screened Sunday night at The Colony Theatre in Miami Beach,  receives the HBO Latin America Ally Award 9 p.m. Saturday at Gusman.
