Tonight the Boston LGBT Film Festival begins its 28th year & runs from May 3rd to the 13th. There are over 100 features & shorts participating in this year’s film festival. Opening night on Thursday May 3rd will take place at the Institute of Contemporary Art with the screening of the Italian film LOOSE CANNONS (Mine Vaganti) directed by Ferzan Ozpetek with English subtitles. This smart comedy is about the conservative Catholic Cantone family who own & operate a pasta factory in southern Italy. Tommaso is the youngest son who lives in Rome where he studies literature & lives with his boyfriend. Tommaso decides to tell his parents the truth about himself but when he is finally ready to come out in front of the entire family his older brother Antonio ruins his plans. Opening night is co-presented by the Consolato Generale d'Italia Boston with opening remarks by the Italian Consul General Giuseppe Pastorelli. To attend opening night at the ICA on Thursday May 3rd there are a limited number of tickets available so act fast to avail upon this unique opportunity to join the film-set & mingle with the paparazzi. This reception includes an open bar & hors d'oeuvres by Wolfgang Puck catering.
