Out On Film, Atlanta's LGBT film festival, kicks off its 30th anniversary with an 11- day festival from September 28 - October 8 at the Midtown Art Cinema, Out Front Theatre Company, and the Plaza Theatre. More than 125 films from around the world will be featured.

Be sure use the code "AJFF" in person at the box office for $3.00 off any ticket. 

We hope you'll take the time to look through Out on Film's full schedule; but at the very least, we encourage you to check out a few films we're excited to see.

Happiness Adjacent
Rob Williams’ latest film explores the romance between Hank, a nice Jewish boy who definitely isn't looking for love, and Kurt, a Midwestern guy who desperately needs someone to break up the monotony of his stale marriage. The men meet on a tropical getaway, where Hank, who is gay, is traveling alone and Kurt, who is bisexual, is vacationing with his wife, Kate, who seems clueless about her husband's affair.

Hello Again
Ten lost souls slip in and out of one another's arms in a daisy-chained musical exploration of love's bittersweet embrace, directed by Tom Gustafson of Were the World Mine and Getting Go: The Go Doc Project. A film adaptation of LaChiusa's celebrated musical, originally based on controversial Jewish author and dramatist Arthur Schnitzler's play, La Ronde, Hello Again boasts an amazing cast including Martha Plimpton, Audra McDonald, Cheyenne Jackson and T.R. Knight, to name a few.

House of Z
This revealing documentary chronicles the meteoric rise of Jewish fashion designer Zac Posen at the age of 21, his brand’s falling out of favor several years later and his challenge to rebuild his company and his reputation. It is both a portrait of an artist and a look at the glamorous curtain of one of the most distinguished brands in the world.
