2009poster_smallCongratulations are in order for the Pikes Peak Lavender Film Festival. This weekend’s festival marks their 10th, yes TENTH! year here in Colorado Springs and they’ve brought us so many great gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender films over the years, including Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Aimee and Jaguar, Trembling Before G-d, But I’m a Cheerleader and dozens more features, shorts and documentaries, many of which have crossed over into the mainstream.

One of the most daunting parts of the festival is choosing between the many great films when you can’t see them all. To help you out with the process, we’ve dug up trailers for all the feature films at this year’s festival and have embedded them in the order they will be screened, beginning with tonight’s opening at the Fine Arts Center. For more information, including tickets, you can go to www.pplff.org.


DISCLAIMER: MANY OF THESE TRAILERS CONTAIN ADULT SITUATIONS AND A FEW CONTAIN BRIEF NUDITY.
