Mardi Gras Film Festival

If you’re after some kind of proof, you only have to look at the dashing James Franco, who’s played almost as many gay men as he’s had movies recently (Sonny, Milk, Howl) to know that being out and proud is totally the look in 2011. Celebrating this fact, The Mardi Gras film festival returns with more gay, queer and camp reels than you can poke your bedazzled stick at. Premiering the Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor-starring critical smash I Love You Philip Morris, as well as tons of other features from across cultures and genres, there’s a lot of hits here. And it’s the perfect way to get ready forthe impending citywide celebration.
