Friday (Sept. 7th) marks the start of the 15th annual Outflix Film Festival, the city's only fest dedicated to LGBT-themed films.

Much like last year's line-up, this year promises plenty in the way of international features, hard-hitting documentaries, dramas, and comedies.

Flyer film editor Chris Herrington reviewed six of the films screening at the nearly week-long festival. Call Me Kechu (a documentary on anti-gay violence in Uganda), Love Free or Die (a profile of the Episcopal church's first openly gay bishop), United In Anger: A History of Act Up (a documentary on AIDS activism in the 80s), Facing Mirrors (a documentary on being transgender in Iran), Mosquita y Mari (a look at a teenage lesbian relationship between two Latino girls), and Gayby (a comedy about a gay man and a straight woman who decide to have a baby the old-fashioned way).
