Frameline celebrates its 37th birthday this year with the annual summer San Francisco film festival (June 20-30) highlighting American and international independent LGBT cinema. While gay representation in mainstream film still leaves something to be desired, we have festivals like this and LA's own OutFest (which kicks off with "C.O.G." July 11) to thank for meeting that need. Frameline begins Thursday with lesbian drama "Concussion," followed by the premiere screening of "White Night."
