Encore of 2013 Favorite, “Melting Away” Dec 8th at noon at Landmark Theatre


The Israeli Consulate and Out On Film are sponsoring an encore screening of the film "Melting Away," nominated for Best Actress by the Israeli Academy Awards, on Sunday, December 8th at noon at the Midtown Art Cinema. Tickets are $10 and will be available at Landmark Theatres, the Out On Film website and the door beginning next week. The film won two Out On Film 2013 Jury Awards - Best Actress and Best Director. After Shlomo discovers women's clothing and accessories in his son's Assaf room, he decides to 'teach the boy a lesson'. When Assaf returns to his parents' home on a rainy night from a party, his attempts to enter home fail. His father, with the silent consent of his mothe...r, locked the door. At present, 4 years later, Gallia turns to an investigation agency to help her find her son Assaf and bring him to Shlomo, his father who is dying of cancer. One night, at a night club in Tel Aviv, Assaf is seen performing as a beautiful transgender lady singer who goes by the name of Anna. After a few days a private nurse turns up at Shlomo's room at the hospital, sent as she claims by the insurance agency to assist Shlomo. The nurse is Anna (his son Assaf) and she manages to conquer Shlomo's heart by her charming personality and her special attitude toward life.

Thanks again!

“Leave It On The Floor” Atlanta Theatrical Run

April 20-26, 2012  Plaza Theatre  7:30 nightly, Plaza Theatre, 1049 Ponce De Leon Ave, Atlanta GA 30606


Activist. Author. Historian. Game changer. Vito Russo. The acclaimed documentary “Vito” will have its Southeastern premiere on Wednesday, March 7th at 7:30 p.m. at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema as a fundraiser for Out On Film’s 25th anniversary year. In the aftermath of Stonewall, a newly politicized Vito Russo found his voice as a gay activist and critic of LGBT representation in the media. He went on to write the groundbreaking “The Celluloid Closet,” the first book to critique Hollywood’s portrayals of gays on screen. During the AIDS crisis in the 1980s, Vito became a passionate advocate for justice via the newly formed ACT UP, before his death in 1990. He was also one of the founding members of GLAAD. Director Jeffrey Schwarz and executive producer Bryan Singer tell us the story of a man who changed the gay landscape. One of Vito's best friends, Lily Tomlin, appears in the film and talks about their relationship.
