G&L Film Festival Launch Party

The eighth annnual Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival gets underway Oct. 8. But organizers are throwing an early launch party this Saturday, Sept. 18. This gives fans a chance to interact with organizers and fellow film lovers and to get a sneak peak at what films will be playing and what special guests will be arriving at this year’s week-long, multi-city event. SWG&LFF will be debuting its new schedule at the party and handing out hot-off-the-press copies of the 2010 Program Guide. The booze-and-food-filled event will take place at Scalo Northern Italian Grillin Nob Hill from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Tickets to the Launch Party will be sold at the door for $25. All members of Closet Cinema get a $5 discount. And if you sign up to become a member of Closet Cinema at the party, you get in for free!
