The 13th Annual Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival (MGLFF) returns to Miami-Dade County, Florida beginning April 21-May 1, 2011. The festival will feature more than 50 feature and short films from 15 countries with multiple screenings at the Colony Theater, Regal Cinemas South Beach, and Coral Gables Art Cinema.
The 2011 Festival opens with the North American premiere presentation of KICK-OFF at the historic Colony Theater in Miami Beach, Florida. Written and directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair, the film is an outrageous new comedy about what happens when the meanest team of the Sunday Soccer league comes up against a newly formed gay team and quickly realizes that the men in pink may be more than they can handle. Watch and wince as fledging referee Elton Glixtion struggles to control this testosterone tsunami as rude-boy meets gay-boy in a crazy gun-ho match of 5-a-side football.
In addition to the 11-days of films, the Festival will also feature events such as special presentation of the Patrick Ward Angel Award to the legendary “Teacher to the Stars” Jay W. Jensen, posthumously.
