It seems like just yesterday that I attended NewFest — New York’s LGBT Film Festival — and laid my eyes upon Carol for the first time. But no! It was an entire year ago! Since then, I’ve seen Carol in the theater six times, bought it on BluRay, began celebrating Carolmas instead of Christmas, and relayed the plot of the movie in real time to a very disgruntled passenger on a cross-country flight. NewFest changed my life, is what I am saying, and maybe it can change yours too? This time next year, you, too, could be the only reason Delta passengers know two women in a film smooshed their mouths together.
The 28th annual NewFest kicks off today in New York City and runs through next Tuesday, Oct. 25. In addition to Saturday’s screening of Suicide Kale (you can still get tickets, by the way!), NewFest also features So Yong Kim’s new film, Lovesong. And hey, guess what? We have four tickets (two tickets, each, for two winners) to give away to the screening of Lovesong on Tuesday night and the festival’s closing ceremony/afterparty.
Here are the details!
What: Closing Night Film and Party of the 28th Annual New York LGBT Film Festival
When: Tues., October 25th at 8pm
Where: Cinepolis Chelsea
After the film, ticket holders are invited to continue the celebration with complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at the Closing Night Party at No.8 in Chelsea, featuring DJs The Carry Nation.
If you’d like to to win tickets, simply comment on this post. On Sunday, I’ll draw two winners and contact you via the email address listed in your Autostraddle member profile.
NewFest 2016 runs from October 20th – October 25th at the SVA Theatre, Cinepolis Chelsea, and The LGBT Community Center and presents over 100 premieres, parties, and panels that promote the best of queer cinema and shine a light on the LGBT experience!
