On Thursday, March 18th, the Ann Arbor Film Festival will feature Out Night, a selection of LGBT-oriented films that you won’t see anywhere else in the screening room at the Michigan Theater. The 42nd Ann Arbor Film Festival will kick off Out Night at 8:00 p.m. with favorites from Outfest L.A, the largest and oldest Gay and Lesbian Film Festival in Southern California. Hosted by Outfest Director of Programming Kirsten Schaffer, the program will feature the funniest, sassiest, and smartest award-winning films from the 2003 festival. Never before seen in Ann Arbor. Admission is $8.00.
Out Night continues with four film screenings at 10:00 p.m., ending with “The Rubi Girls,” a documentary about a tight-knit group of professional gay men living in the heart of the Midwest. The film explores the history of the “girls,” who have been embraced by their community for their fresh approach to comedic drag and dedication to HIV/AIDS fundraising. The piece also attempts to redefine the term “family values.” Don’t miss a special live performance by the Rubi Girls after the film.
Out Night attendees are invited to party at the Aut Bar following the film screenings.
