Mark your calendars, New York cinema buffs. The city is gearing up to spotlight the entertainment industry's pioneering LGBTQ voices at the 28th annual NewFest — one of the movie world's most comprehensive celebrations of queer film. Founded in 1988, NewFest honors the vital LGBTQ visionaries who're transforming Hollywood with their barrier-breaking, inclusive storytelling.
This year, Refinery29's Shatterbox Anthology is proud to announce that our short film, Out Again, will premiere at NewFest on March 15. Directed by comedian Robin Cloud, Out Again captures one young woman's darkly humorous struggle to introduce her new wife to her parents, even as her mother battles Alzheimer's disease. At once sad and profoundly compassionate, Cloud's portrait of the complex family dynamics often navigated by LGBTQ couples is a bittersweet homage to coming out, even if you have to do it a couple of times.
Tickets are available here for Out Again 's NewFest premiere next week. We hope you'll join us in celebrating Cloud's bold, playful look at love's universality.
