The Cincinnati Film Society has a special outlet for examining LGBT issues: the OutReels Film Festival. This is the fourth year for the annual event which attracts directors, producers, actors and attendees from across the country to Cincinnati for film screenings and lectures. The film of note this year, “Upstairs Inferno: The Documentary,” profiles the largest gay mass murder in U.S. history. It was written and directed by filmmaker Robert Camina.

A short film shot in Northside has received an honorable mention in the White House Student Film Festival.  "I Am Urban Art" was produced as part of Stages for Youth.  Frank O'Farrell founded the program last year to teach video production.

One of the films to be spotlighted in this year’s ReelAbilities Film Festival, kicking off February 27, is Where Hope Grows, the fictional account of an out-of-work baseball player whose life is impacted by a local boy who happens to have Down Syndrome. The film’s writer and director, Chris Dowling, talks with Howard Wilkinson about the genesis of the movie, which was filmed in Louisville, and being part of the ReelAbilities Film Festival - organized by LADD and presented by Macy's.

  

The Fourth Annual Cincinnati Film Festival happens September 5-15 at a variety of locations around town, and Lee Hay has a preview of what film lovers will see.

It’s summertime, and like most of us, you are probably looking for some new and different things to do during your vacation time. Consider a nearby road trip in search of films that you may not be able to see locally. There are four cities each within a couple of hours driving time with cinematic distractions to interest and entertain you.
