The ever-judicious folks at BAM are screening the audience favorites and award winners from this year’s queer film event NewFest, which you might’ve missed in June amid Pride fever. The very best of the best: The Birthday, a doc about Iraq’s unexpectedly liberal attitudes toward transsexuals; The Godfather of the Disco, a narrative about a gay man’s life in seventies New York; and Sonja, a tender girl-on-girl addition to the coming-of-age genre.


9/7- Sonja; Blueprint; Women's Shorts Showcase
9/8 - Saving Marriage; Oh Happy Day; The Godfather of Disco
9/9 - Men's Shorts Showcase; Gender Redesigner; On the Downlow; The Birthday
