Mardi Film Festival Launch
Mardi Gras Film Festival will launch its full 2014 program on January 15 with a special screening of the new Alan Cummings film, Any Day Now.
Set in 1970s Los Angeles and inspired by a true story, Any Day Now, follows the story of aspiring singer Rudy (Alan Cumming) and his closeted district attorney partner Paul (Garret Dillahunt) who take in an abandoned teenager with Down Syndrome, becoming the family he’s never had.
But once the unconventional living arrangement is discovered by authorities, the men must fight the legal system to adopt the child.
Festival Director, Paul Struthers, says the past year has delivered some amazing new queer cinema and he looks forward to revealing the remainder of the MGFF program on the night.
“Over the last 12 months there has been an huge amount of incredible queer cinema from around the globe. Stories of love, loss, politics and pride will all take centre stage in February and I’m excited to be a part of bringing these films to Australian audiences.” says Struthers.
Mardi Gras Film Festival will take place from February 13 to Sunday February 23 2014 at Event Cinemas George Street.
