Feature film schedule

  • June 4: Sublet - Michael, a travel columnist for The New York Times, goes to Tel Aviv to write an article after suffering a tragedy. He is still grieving, and the loss has caused problems between him and his husband. He just wants to do his research and go home. But when he sublets an apartment from Tomer, a young film student, he finds himself drawn into the life of the city. The unlikely and intense bond he forms with him transforms both their lives in unexpected ways. (Followed by Comedy Shorts at 10 pm)
  • June 5: No Ordinary Man - No Ordinary Man is an in-depth look at the life of musician and trans culture icon Billy Tipton. Complicated, beautiful, and historically unrivaled, this groundbreaking film shows what is possible when a community collaborates to honor the legacy of an unlikely hero. (3 pm)
  • June 5: Cocoon - Nora, a shy 14-year-old Berlin girl, will never forget this way too hot summer. Surrounded by people with disrupted biographies, from different cultures and backgrounds, she makes her way into adulthood. Nora gets her first period, falls in love with another girl, learns to stand up for herself and gets her heart broken for the first time. When summer ends, things will never be the same again for Nora. (7 pm) (Followed by Late Night and Genre Shorts at 10 pm)
  • June 6: Nora Highland - Nora Highland follows the casting process of a notable gay character in an upcoming Broadway revival and explores the phenomenon of straight performers being lauded for their work in queer roles. Adapted from a play of the same name, Nora Highland was turned into a screenplay and shot entirely on computers during the COVID-19 pandemic. (Followed by LGBTQ Documentary Filmmaking and Political Activism panel at 7pm)
