NewFest (www.NewFest.org), the New York Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender film festival is coming to locations across the city, July 21-28. The festival will open and close at the Film Society of Lincoln Center and will be headquartered throughout the week at Chelsea's SVA Theater and Cinema Village. Special satellite screenings will be held at The Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, the Brooklyn Academy Of Music, the Jewish Community Center on the Upper West Side, and Harlem Stage.
On Sunday, July 24th, it's all about the lights and the glamour of...Broadway! NewFest will screen Dori Berinstein's "Carol Channing: Larger than Life," a hilarious and excessively sweet documentary about the stage legend. Also on Sunday, Broadway stars Cheyenne Jackson ("Glee," "30 Rock") and Jason Butler Harner star in Steven Williford's drama "The Green." The Broadway block ends with the world premiere of Elisabeth Sperling & Trish Dalton's "One Night Stand," which follows various participants in last year's 24 hour musical competition. The film features Cheyenne Jackson, Jesse Tyler Ferguson ("Modern Family"), chanteuse Nellie McKay, Richard Kind ("Spin City," "A Serious Man"), Rachel Dratch ("SNL"), Mandy Gonzalez ("Wicked," "In the Heights"), and Tracie Thoms ("Rent").
