NewFest, New York's LGBT film festival held annually with the support of Outfest and Lincoln Center, has announced the lineup for its 2014 program, scheduled for July 24-29.

Karim Aïnouz's "Futuro Beach," a dark, sexy romance about a Brazilian lifeguard who rescues a German tourist from the treacherous Praia do Futuro and embarks on a steamy romance with him, will open this year's festival with its New York City premiere.  Bruce LaBruce's "Gerontophilia," about a young gay man who takes a job in a nursing home and develops an attraction to one of his elderly charges, is scheduled as the closing night film.

Highlights of the five-day festival include "The Circle," Stephen Haupt's look at 1950s gay life in Zurich that nabbed the Teddy Award at this year's Berlinale, "Lilting," a Sundance selection starring Ben Whishaw and directed by Hong Khaou, "Blackbird," Patrik-Ian Polk's drama about a devout choir boy in conservative Mississippi struggling to address his sexuality, and the world premiere of "We Came to Sweat: The Legend of Starlite," Kate Kunath's documentary about Brooklyn's oldest gay bar.

Tickets for this year's NewFest go on sale July 10--you can find the full lineup here.  Check out the trailers for a few of the films, after the jump.
