Tonight’s the opening night of NewFest, Lincoln Center’s annual celebration of cinema for, by, and about gay cineastes. The whole festival’s light on camp and heavy on considerations of what it means to be gay around the world; tonight’s opening film is Four, a film about a late-night encounter initiated online. Other films depict the internal crisis of a bisexual Chilean, the sexual discovery of a bisexual Swede, and New Hampshire’s Bishop Gene Robinson. It’s not all so grave, though—one film features Oscar-winning salty ladies Brenda Fricker and Olympia Dukakis on a road trip.
NewFest runs through July 31, tonight’s opening-night screening of Four at the Walter Reade Theater, 165 West 65th Street, 7pm; tickets and information can be found at newfest.org.
