In&Out 2015 Gay and Lesbian Film Festival

It’s that time of year again in the French Riviera. Not only are many people preparing for the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival but it is also time for the 7th annual In&Out Gay and Lesbian Film Festival taking place in both the cities of Nice and Cannes from April 30th to May 9th.

And the theme of this year’s festival is, “Coming Out!”

The perspective along this theme according to Benoît Arnulf, the organizer of the In&Out Film Festival, pertains to the gay and lesbian filmmakers themselves proudly being able to show their work as part of their lives (and others) and as part of their careers in hopes of being able to continually make this film genre more universally acceptable and appealing.

Just as anyone in their lives 'coming out' with the hopes of still being accepted.

There are 33 feature films and 3 short films at the festival this year and they come from all corners of the globe touching on a myriad of subjects with something to surely grab one’s attention.

Many of this year’s films are looking towards Eastern Europe with Canada and Italy being honored with a selection of best recent national productions.

The jury this year will be made up of those from the professional side of the film industry and queer artists with this is festival being a prime opportunity for enthusiasts of the LGBT film genre and those working in the industry to come together to support and network, along with the public.
