OCT 23rd : GEN SILENT 6pm
On October 23, the Festival continues with a powerful documentary titled Gen Silent. The film follows six lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LBGT) seniors, bringing to life a growing epidemic: LGBT seniors so afraid of discrimination, or worse, in long-term health care that they go back into the closet. The surprising decisions of these men and women are revealed through access to their day-to-day lives across a year in Boston.
OCT 30th : DOUBLE FEATURE 6pm
On the final night, October 30, the festival will offer a double feature: The Night Watch and Wish Me Away. The first film is an adaptation of Sarah Water’s acclaimed historical novel Night Watch, the tale of two women whose lives are intertwined during World War II in London. The 2011 LGBT Film Festival closes with the award winning Wish Me Away, a documentary of the coming out story of country singer Cheley Wright.
Selected short films, including Poker Face; Rainbow Rabbit Reliant; Loop Planes; and Tell Me a Memory will be shown before the feature film each of the first four weeks.
The Indiana LBGT Film Festival is made possible with funding from various departments and organizations at IUP, PFLAG of Indiana, and ICC, and with the support of individual donors. IUP organizations co-sponsoring the festival include Pride Alliance, The GLBT Commission, The Lively Arts at IUP, Women’s Studies, The Honors College, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Departments of English, Political Science, and Sociology.
