NewFest Pacts With Lincoln Center

Written by: FFT Webmaster | June 27th, 2011

With Gay Pride Weekend just passed in New York, where a historic decision on gay marriage only heightened the celebratory mood, all eyes are turning to NewFest, New York’s long-standing gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender film showcase. For the first time in its 23 year history, NewFest is partnering with the Film Society of Lincoln Center to co-present the Festival’s Opening and Closing Night Galas. NewFest will open July 21st at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reader Theater with director David Weissman’s gripping documentary WE WERE HERE, a deep and reflective look back at the arrival and impact of AIDS in San Francisco. Closing the Festival on July 28th will be GUN HILL ROAD, a Bronx-set family drama centering on a transgendered teenager, directed  by Rashaad Ernesto Green.
