“Part of the Denver Film Society’s mission is to bridge different audiences and bring them together. Cinema Q is striving to bring together the LGBT community and people who may not necessarily identify as a part of that community through storytelling,” Campbell says.
This year’s festival offerings include Queens and Cowboys: A Straight Year on the Gay Rodeo and Mala Mala, about transgender communities in Puerto Rico, as well as LGBT-produced web series and shorts. The festival kicks off tonight at 7 p.m. with Appropriate Behavior (tickets are $15 for members, $20 for non-members) and will close on Sunday with a screening of Limited Partnership, about the country’s first same-sex marriage, with filmmaker Thomas Miller and Cleta Rorex, the former Boulder County clerk who issued that license in the ’70s, in attendance ($13 members, $15 non-members). Regular screenings run $11 to $13, and all are at the Sie, 2510 East Colfax Avenue; for more information, go to denverfilm.org or call 303-595-3456.
