Film Festival Preview Guys, Girls and Guns Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival comes back with a bang Speaking from his overburdened office less than a week before the start of the Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival , festival director Roberto Appicciafoco sounds weary but enthusiastic. He admits that ticket sales for this year have “kind of blown up.” That’s an understatement. According to Appicciafoco, online sales have jumped some 500 percent from this time last year. That’s ample evidence to suspect many of the festival’s film screenings will sell out and the multitude of parties (including a brand-new opening night soiree at Bailey’s on the Beach) will be packed with happy celebrants.
