This year marks the 25th anniversary of NewFest, New York's LGBT film festival, and the second year the fest has partnered with L.A.'s Outfest and the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

NewFest, which kicked off last September 6 and runs through September 11, features 44 films from across the globe, all focused on exploring the modern LGBT experience.

Sundance fave "Concussion" opened the festival with a pre-screening reception and a post-film Q&A with producer Rose Troche and burgeoning director Stacie Passon. The film stars Robin Weigert as a suburban housewife who undergoes a journey of sexual exploration (and perhaps exploitation) after taking a baseball to the head.

Multi-hyphenate James Franco is heavily featured in the festival's slate, with New York premieres of two films on which he collaborated: Travis Mathews's "Interior. Leather Bar." and Christina Voros's "Kink."

International entries for this year's NewFest include "Free Fall," first-time German director Stephen Lacant's drama about a love affair between a policeman and his training partner, and Gilette Leung's Chinese romance "Love Me Not."

This Wednesday, NewFest will close with the New York premiere of Chris Mason Johnson's "Test," a multiple-award winner at Outfest about a modern dancer living, working and loving in San Francisco at the outset of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
