Pride Film Festival

5th - 11th October is Pride Film Festival at Cinema Nouveau, Gateway Shopping Centre. Hosted by Sterkinekor this is an inaugural Pride event and features 9 diverse movies with a focus on light entertainment. The featured movie "Another Gay Movie" also opens on the general movie circuit this week.

ANOTHER GAY MOVIE, is described as "the dirtiest, funniest, most scandalous gay-teen-sex-comedy-parody ever," in which four young gay friends make a pact to lose their virginity by the end of the summer.

THE MOSTLY UNFABULOUS SOCIAL LIFE OF ETHAN GREEN is a screwball comedy about an adorable 26-year old looking for love in all the wrong places.

THE TRIP is an unlikely and humorous love story about a sexy, blonde gay activist and a closeted Republican set in the turbulent political climate of the 70's and 80's, while APRIL'S SHOWER is another comedy; a tale of lesbian love, romance, and expectation, which takes place in the midst of a bridal shower.

On a more dramatic note, POSTER BOY tells the story of a gay college student who is placed in a difficult position when his right wing father is embroiled in a tight race for re-election as senator.

Two films with an ostensibly factual slant top out the festival's offerings: NAKED FAME is a documentary portrait of widely successful gay adult film star Colton Ford who, at the age of 40, decides to leave porn behind to pursue his dream of making it in the music business, while SHOWBOY, an award-winning "mockumentary", is the journey of Christian, in his bizarrely erratic and passion-fuelled attempt to become a Las Vegas showboy.
