If you need a little help navigating your way through this year’s impressive lineup, here are some of our top picks.

Life Partners 2

Life Partners
In the mood for a giggle? This charming and equally witty flick is about a co-dependent friendship between straight laced Paige (Gillian Jacobs) and lesbian slacker Sasha (Leighton Meester). All is fine until Paige starts a relationship with Tim (Adam Brody), and the girls have adapt their friendship to keep it alive.

lilting 2

Lilting
Lilting will leave your heart significantly melted.” – IndieWire. This award-winning drama is a gentle exploration of grief. When Kai (Andrew Leung) dies suddenly, his Chinese-Cambodian mother Junn (Cheng Pei Pei) and gay partner Richard (Ben Whishaw) struggle to cope. Our recommendation? Bring some tissues.

Lyle 2

Lyle
Gaby Hoffman – need we say more? In a sinister ode to Rosemary’s Baby, this horror flick stars Hoffman as Leah, a grieving mother. Leah’s sorrow over the death of her toddler turns to paranoia when she begins to suspect her eccentric neighbours are involved in a satanic pact.

Out in the Night 2

Out in the Night
This film could help influence the ongoing LGBT civil rights struggle. Everyone should see it.” – RogerEbert.com. This illuminative doco tells the story of four friends, who became known as a ‚ÄúGang of Killer Lesbians’ after defending themselves one night out in New York. The film offers plenty of food for thought concerning the influence of biased media coverage on a prejudicial legal system.

anita 2

Anita’s Last Cha-Cha
This Filipino coming-of-age flick is guaranteed to move you. Winner of the Best Picture award at the 2013 Cinefilipino Film Festival, it captures the magic of first love through the eyes of a child.
