Frameline45, the San Francisco International LGBTQ+ Film Festival will run from June 10–27, 2021.
This year, the festival will include a mix of in-person and virtual offerings—with the first week presenting only outdoor and drive-in events, and the last 11 days bringing the biggest lineup of new and virtually accessible LGBTQ+ films in the world directly to your home (nationally in the US!).
Here is the French language selection (All movies are subtitles in English).
Summer of 1985 by François Ozon (100 mn) – Two teenage boys find themselves fatefully linked together following a boating accident in this sun-kissed tale of summer flings, first love, and the thin line between passion and obsession. With Felix Lefevbre and Benjamin Voisin. Trailer : https://www.youtube.com/
Freed by Josza Anjembe (21 mn)- Twenty-year-old Issa (Alassane Diong) is about to get out of jail when he meets Gaëtan (Yoann Zimmer, Summer of 85) a young inmate who has not served his sentence yet. Nominated for a César (the French equivalent of the Oscars) for Best Short Film.
Lola by Roland Micheli (87mn) – Before she has a chance to celebrate setting the date for her gender reassignment surgery, 18-year-old Lola (striking trans newcomer Mya Bollaers) faces immeasurable grief when her mother suddenly dies. With her biggest supporter gone, Lola is forced to reunite with her uncaring and bigoted father Philippe (The Piano Teacher’s Benoît Magimel), who disowned her years prior.
