Frameline Reviews: 'I am Divine,' Sedaris Adaptation 'C.O.G.,' Franco-on-Friedkin Highlight LGBT Film Festival

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."

Louisiana International Film Festival Continues with Industry Expo, Strong Documentaries, 'I Am Divine' (TRAILER)

The days' screenings: it's doc day! "Life According to Sam" showed at Sundance and is to be broadcast on HBO in the fall . The second doc is Jeff Kaufman's lively, densely-populated "The Savoy King," which debuted at the New York Film Festival. The third is "I Am Divine," by accomplished documentarian Jeffrey Schwarz, who previously directed HBO's "Vito." If you're a Divine fan, this movie is right up your alley -- I am one, and yet I was totally ignorant of her disco career. If the John Waters star is unknown to you, you'll be a fan after you see the movie.
