Queer Film (in Austin)
Houston’s annual queer film festival is defunct, so ’philes with a craving for cinema might want to consider a road trip to AGLIFF, the revered Austin Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival.
As usual, AGLIFF chose an ambitious roster of six days’ worth of films appealing to movie-loving palates of all descriptions. Among the guaranteed audience-pleasers is The Reluctant Traveler. The vérité documentary is told in first-person form by Marco Orsini, a gay man who, though accustomed to being pampered by his affluent partner, embarks on a rugged journey through Ethiopia to fulfill that ailing partner’s dream. The Reluctant Traveler screens September 10.
But the 22nd annual festival possibly peaks with Hannah Free, screening September 12, 4:55. Sharon Gless (Queer as Folk)
The entire festival plays September 8 through 13. Alamo Drafthouse, 1120 S. Lamar Blvd. Details: agliff.org. —Nancy Ford
