Clea DuVall manages a real Christmas miracle in Happiest Season by capturing the distinctly queer and quietly heart-wrenching experience of not being able to share your real self with the people you love most, when all you want to do is shout from the tallest chimney in town that you’ve found your person, that you’re in love.

Michelle Handelman’s Bloodsisters, a documentary about a group of San Francisco leatherdykes, is celebrating its 25th anniversary at NewFest. More than just whips and chains, the film spotlights a culture that focuses on political activism and sexual imagination that has rendered it timeless.
