Blessed Boys – North American Premiere
In a sunny district of Naples, Italy where everyone knows each other, two inseparable friends live in the sheltered bubble of neighborhood life until their fraternal friendship is put to the test. Mario (Vincenzo Antonucci) and Lino (Francesco Pellegrino) are two eighteen-year-olds, born and raised in the Sanitá quarter of Naples, who have not yet stepped out of their small town. When Lino’s little sister convinces the locals that she has performed a miracle and starts being worshipped as a living Saint, Lino’s fate abruptly changes. Freed from the pressure of being financially responsible for his mother and sister, for the first time he’s able to imagine a life for himself outside of the four walls of his family home. Meanwhile, Mario is experiencing a growing attraction to his friend that so far has gone unnoticed.
Both erotic and emotionally intense, this mesmerizing debut from Silvia Brunelli won the Best Italian Feature prize at the Rome International Film Festival, where it was described as “a light and dramatic fresco of a humanity torn between the sacred and the profane.” It’s a bold, funny, and wistful film about masculinity, sexuality, and religion, inspired by the director’s own life experiences, and heralds a dynamic new talent to watch.
Available to stream At Home starting Saturday, June 11th at 6pm.
God Save The Queens – World Premiere
It’s hard being a drag queen in Los Angeles, which is why therapy retreats are so important! The retreat featured in God Save the Queens includes Gigi (Jordan Michael Green) who is desperate to get their big break with their solo show by any means necessary and Marmalade (Kelly Mantle) who struggles with being a seasoned comedy queen in an industry where youth and beauty are the valued currency. Rounding out the therapy group are drag rock duo Rita (Laganja Estranja) and Stevie (Alaska Thunderfuck) who are feuding over their mutual ex when they’re invited to perform in a high-profile talent show. Little do any of them realize that fate might have brought them all together.
Actress Jordan Danger (Eureka) makes her feature-length directorial debut with this fabulous dramedy that deftly blends the humor of being a drag queen with the hardships that mold these artists. Featuring appearances by Luenell, Peter Facinelli, Michelle Visage and RuPaul’s Drag Race alums Manila Luzon and Honey Davenport, God Save The Queens offers a heartfelt and hilarious look at the performers underneath all the makeup and eleganza.

You Can Live Forever – World Premiere
In the early 1990s, queer teenager Jaime is sent to live with her devout Jehovah’s Witness relatives after the death of her father. Early on Jaime makes an unexpected connection with Marike, the daughter of a prominent Witness elder. The two are instantly drawn to each other, and begin a secret, unspoken relationship. But when their attraction becomes too obvious to hide, the community moves to separate the two, forcing them each to make a terrible choice between faith and love.
Montreal filmmakers Sarah Watts and Mark Slutsky join forces on their debut feature to share this thoughtful and relatable story of forbidden romance and the intensity of first love. Anwen O’Driscoll and June Laporte play the compelling couple, gifting us with some standout scenes of queer bliss. While Marike seems tortured and incapable of commitment, our loyalties lie with O’Driscoll’s characterization of Jaime, who imbues the role with an unapologetic attitude that is worth the watch.
Screens Saturday, June 11th at 5:30pm, Sunday, June 12th at 2:30pm, and Tuesday, June 14th at 9:00pm at Village East by Angelika. Available to stream At Home starting Monday, June 13th at 6pm.
All Man: The International Male Story narrated by Matt Bomer – World Premiere
From the outside, the International Male catalog, with its frilly pirate shirts and revealing underwear in eye-singeing patterns, could seem humorously garish. But to the “magalog’s” target audience of closeted gay teenagers and flamboyant club-goers, International Male was a secret handshake that gave them permission to be their fabulous selves. Narrated by Matt Bomer and featuring an all-star cast of celebrity stylists, fashion influencers, and comedic actors, All Man: The International Male Story celebrates International Male in an appropriately colorful ‘80s throwback style.
The cast of characters is as colorful as the documentary itself: From globetrotting founder Gene Burkard to head buyer Gloria Tomita and her appreciative eye for male beauty, the employees of International Male saw themselves as more of a family then co-workers. But while the documentary is tongue in cheek, its analysis of postwar American masculinity, the devastating effects of the AIDS crisis, and fashion’s power to bridge the cultural barriers between gay and straight men is wholly sincere. Score by Bright Light Bright Light.
Screens Sunday, June 12th at 8:30pm at Village East by Angelika, Wednesday, June 15th at 9:30pm
at Village East by Angelika, and Thursday, June 16th at 2:30pm at Cinépolis. Available to stream At Home starting Tuesday June 14th at 6pm.
Attachment – International Premiere
Attachment is a horror romance about love at first sight, steeped in Jewish folklore. Maja, a Danish has-been actress, pays her bills by reprising her role from an old Christmas TV show at local shopping centres and libraries. So, when she falls in love with Leah, a young, Jewish academic from London, it seems her life might finally be taking a turn for the better. But when Leah suffers a mysterious seizure, leading to a debilitating injury, Maja fears their whirlwind romance might be cut short – and decides to follow Leah back to her home in the Hasidic neighborhood of Stamford Hill, London. There, she meets her new downstairs neighbour: Leah’s mother, Chana. An overbearing and secretive woman, Chana seems resistant to all of Maja’s attempts to win her over. And as Maja begins to notice strange occurrences in the building, she begins to suspect that Chana’s secrets could be much darker that first anticipated – and that the woman she loves might be carrying the biggest secret of all. This lesbian possession story rooted in Orthodox Judaism serves as an allegory for codependence, conjuring a unique cinematic world and keeping us riveted as it continually delves deeper and darker.
Screens Sunday, June 12th at 9pm at Village East by Angelika, Tuesday, June 14th at 8:45pm and Friday, June 17th at 8:45pm at Cinépolis. Available to stream At Home starting Tuesday June 14th at 6pm.
Breaking The Ice – World Premiere
Director Clara Stern comes to her debut feature Breaking The Ice off of her prize-winning short film Mathias, about a transgender man’s struggle to find his place in the world. She brings that same sensitivity to Breaking The Ice, a film that explores what happens when someone with a very rigid approach to life meets their freewheeling opposite. Alina Schaller stars as Mira, the heir to an Austrian vineyard whose existence is defined by stress. And Mira has a lot to worry about: The family business is barely staying afloat, her grandfather’s dementia is getting worse, and her brother Paul (Tobias Resch) recently went missing.
Mira’s sole outlet for all this anxiety is serving as the captain of a women’s ice hockey team, a task she approaches with her usual sense of upright obligation. Enter new teammate Theresa (Judith Altenberger), whose spontaneous nature both rattles and intrigues the uptight Mira. Then Paul returns and the trio embarks on a life-changing trip to Vienna, where Mira will learn to let go—and maybe even fall in love.
Screens Saturday, June 11th at 8pm at Village East by Angelika, Sunday, June 12th at 11:45am and Saturday, June 18th at at 9pm at Cinépolis. Available to stream At Home starting Monday, June 13th at 6pm.
Lucky – World Premiere
27-year-old French gay artist Luc Bruyère is a model, musician, dancer, and drag queen who lost his left arm at birth due to Agenesis and is HIV positive. Bruyère’s physical beauty and rock-star charisma captivates as he recites his insightful musings on life, including: “Performing as a woman is really what made me a man,” and “I don’t expect acceptance from others, I take it.” Traveling from Paris to Berlin, Luc navigates a disability while processing how his father left him when he was young leaving his mother with depression. Now reconciled with both parents, they all celebrate his sister’s pregnancy, while Bruyère continues to push forward his art.
In this stunning debut by Loren Denis and Anthony Vibert, they capture an intimate and sincere portrait of a one-armed artist navigating life with a disability while processing parental abandonment, addiction, sex work, and gender while being HIV positive and the stigma that attracts. Bruyère’s inspiring and lyrical outlook on life can be summed up with his carefree poetry, “Constantly being reborn might be a way to cheat death, which is why I have to mutate constantly.” A magnetic hero celebrates his unwavering joie de vivre through his transcendent resilience.
Available to stream At Home starting Monday, June 13th at 6pm.
Body Parts – World Premiere
For too long cinema has been dominated by the male gaze. This insightful, revealing documentary, shows the evolution of desire and “sex” on-screen from a female perspective––allowing women to reclaim the parts of themselves that have been objectified and exploited for decades.
Illuminating the closely-held secrets of a tight-lipped industry still ruled by capitalism, patriarchy, and white supremacy, Body Parts uncovers the often invisible processes involved in creating intimacy for mainstream American film and television, the toll these scenes exact on those directly involved, and the impact on women and girls in the real world. The documentary features candid interviews with actors and creators who are advocating for change, including Jane Fonda, Rosanna Arquette, Joey Soloway, Angela Robinson, Karyn Kusama, Rose McGowan, Alexandra Billings, Emily Meade, and David Simon. It highlights the voices of women like Sarah Scott and Sarah Tither-Kaplan who bravely spoke out against abusive behavior on their sets, were punished for it, and helped spark lasting improvements at major studios, including the groundbreaking introduction of intimacy coordinators.
Director Kristy Guevara-Flanagan and producer Helen Hood Scheer deftly pair these interviews with clips from Hollywood’s archives, shining a light on the positive changes rippling through the entertainment industry as it grapples with remedy and redemption.
Screens Sunday, June 12th at 2:45pm at Village East by Angelika, Monday, June 13th at 8:15pm at Tribeca Film Center and Thursday, June 16th at 9pm at Cinépolis. Available to stream At Home starting Tuesday, June 14th at 6pm.
Mars One/Marte Um – New York Premiere
An emotionally-layered ensemble drama, Mars One tells a classic story of a family in crisis. While a far-right politician takes power in Brazil, a young woman realizes she’s queer and falls in love for the first time. Her little brother has a new love as well: science. But as he looks to the stars his father tries to bring him back to Earth, pushing him into a soccer career he’s not sure he actually wants. Meanwhile, the matriarch of the family is going through her own private struggle, triggered by new trauma.
But a family often needs to fall apart to find their way back together, and Mars One brings poetry to their pain. Much like the flow of life, their troubles are punctuated by moments of blissful play, music, dancing and making love. With its gorgeous cinematography and heartfelt performances, Mars One is an emotional journey through changing times. Read our full ★★★★ review from Sundance.
Screens Tuesday, June 14th at 5pm at Village East by Angelika, Friday, June 17th at 5:45pm and Saturday, June 18th at 5:30pm at Cinépolis. Available to stream At Home starting Thursday, June 16th at 6pm.
Petit Mal – World Premiere
Martina, Laia, and Anto are in a passionate, loving, playful throuple. Their relationship, replete with backyard barbeques, relentless teasing, and enough dogs to take up any of the space left in their double wide king bed, faces a test when Laia (multi-talented director Ruth Caudeli) is called away for a long-term project, and Martina (Silvia Varón) and Anto (Ana María Otálora) must temporarily reshape their own dynamic as just the two of them. As they contemplate the strength and flexibility of their love, the audience is invited into an ever-evolving romance that makes room for envy, loneliness, and deep affection to coexist without judgment.
With typical attention to detail, exquisite portrait photography, and effortless chemistry, Petit Mal is frequent collaborators Caudeli (writer-director of Eva + Candela, and Leading Ladies), Varón and Otálora at their most intimate and honest. It’s a chapter of queer life and queer women’s filmmaking steeped in authenticity and introspection, blending documentary and semi-autobiographical fiction to open a window on a uniquely sweet, hopeful vision of inevitable change.
Screens Thursday, June 9th at 8:45pm and Friday, June 10th at 8:15pm at Village East by Angelika, and Saturday, June 11th at 8:15pm at Tribeca Film Center. Available to stream At Home starting Saturday, June 11th at 6pm.
Three Headed Beast – World Premiere
In the quiet of a hot Texas day, Peter (Jacob Schatz) goes to bed with his lover. Across town, Nina (Dani Hurtado) wakes up with hers. Without a word, each couple bids a fond, lingering farewell, and Peter and Nina return to their cozy shared home. They operate comfortably in smiles and silence, moving about their day in percussive rhythms and worn-in grooves of a long-term, healthy relationship; but something in the way they communicate is noticeably lacking. Though they are on the verge of closing their open relationship, something, and someone, is missing.
Co-directors’ Fernando Andrés and Tyler Rugh’s visually lyrical, intimate, and sometimes cheeky drama Three Headed Beast puts the widening chasms in our interpersonal communication on full view. With expressive performances from Hurtado and Schatz, this boldly experimental debut feature highlights what and whom we take for granted, even in relationships that intentionally step off the escalator to monogamy, marriage, and a normative life.
Screens Monday, June 13th at 9pm at Village East by Angelika, Wednesday, June 15th at 9pm at Cinépolis, and Thursday, June 16th at 8:15pm at Tribeca Film Center. Available to stream At Home starting Wednesday, June 15th at 6pm.
