British comedian Simon Amstell wrote and directed this charmingly offbeat gay romantic comedy about a filmmaker juggling the excitement of his upcoming film premiere with the fear and awkwardness of a burgeoning romance. Always ready with a self-defensive quip, indie film director Benjamin (Colin Morgan) nervously prepares for the premiere of his sophomore feature when he meets and falls for hard for Noah (Phenix Brossard), a young French musician. Will Benjamin’s insecurities and anxieties get in the way of success and happiness? Will his film be a critics-savaging disaster and he, a one-hit wonder? Benjamin is a charming, laugh-out-loud look at one man’s land mined road to success and love.


The Last Straight Man
Lewis (Mark Cirillo) is a closeted gay man throwing a bachelor party for his straight best friend and secret crush, Cooper (Scott Sell). Unexpectedly, the two men end up in bed together during the night. After this initial uncontrollable urge of drunken sex together, the two men decide to meet in the same hotel suite on the same night each year to hook up – and catch up. Written and directed by Mark Bessenger (Bite Marks, Confessions), The Last Straight Man is a sexy and bittersweet exploration of a secret relationship as it evolves over the course of twelve years. We see four additional nights that depict how these two men grow and how their friendship – and deep affection – changes.


Between Love & Goodbye
Kyle and Marcel (Simon Miller and Justin Tensen) fell deeply in love at first sight. Marcel, who is from France, marries his lesbian friend Sarah (Jane Elliott) so that he can stay in the United States with Kyle. Enter Kyle’s sister, April (Rob Harmon), a former prostitute who needs a place to crash. Taking a quick disliking to Marcel, April methodically drips poison into their happiness. But where Marcel sees a conniving woman with a not-so-hidden agenda, Kyle only sees his sister in need. The perfect couple soon falls headlong into possessiveness, jealousy and rage – trapped in the tangled emotions found in that space between love and goodbye. Can their love survive the pressure?


Evan (Adrian Shepherd-Gawinski) is a hot, young, gay newspaper writer who has just recently had his heart broken. Attempting to shake off his melancholy, he takes on an assignment profiling Hunter (Ryan Fisher), an alluring up-and-coming young gay club promoter. Around the guys are a host of other twenty-something urbanites, all longing for the same thing – approval. Whether it’s by the in-crowd, the hottie across the bar or in the industry in which they work, all of them are striving for something greater, failing to appreciate the beauty of what they already have. Written and directed by Eric Henry, Seek explores fresh territory in gay cinema – and is all the more tender and heart-wrenching for it.


Body Electric
The summer is coming and Elias (Kelner Macêdo) has been dreaming of the sea a lot. In his daily life, he’s a bit “at sea” as well. In the garment factory where he works, his responsibilities seem to be consistently increasing. He’s drowning in responsibilities. After one more night working overtime, Elias and his employees decide to go out and have some beer together. Though he knows it’s not advisable to mix his work life and his social life, this night proves to be exactly what Elias needs. Suddenly, new encounters and desires open up to his horizons. Though it is light on plot, Body Electric is a smart, warmhearted character study about breaking free from expectations and finding your place in the world.

Flatbush Luck
Flatbush Luck tells the story of two hunky cousins from Flatbush, Brooklyn. Former Wall Street hotshot Jimmy (Tanner Novlan) and his buttoned-up cousin Max (Robby Stahl) work as phone repairmen.

Now Dusty must put all the pieces together to figure out what really happened – even if it means he’s guilty of murder.

Violet Tendencies
In this charming romantic comedy, Violet (Mindy Cohn), finds that her love life is one big belly flop.

Chasing love and lust at all costs, she may find them both in the most unlikely of places.
