aGLIFF presents PRISM 34
Austin’s oldest film festival, aGLIFF, will present PRISM 34 in hybrid form, both in-person and online. The 34th annual festival will feature over 90 films, including features, documentaries, and shorts over 12 days while additionally hosting exclusive festival events and screenings.
The Opening Night film will be the North American premiere of Blitzed: The 80s Blitz Kids Story. Boulevard! A Hollywood Story will make a Southwest Premiere as the Centerpiece Film. Written and directed by aGLIFF alumni Jeffrey Schwarz, Boulevard! looks into the strange but true story of Gloria Swanson and the first musical version of Sunset Boulevard. The Closing Feature will be Sh*t & Champagne, the Southwest premiere of writer, director, and San Francisco drag queen extraordinaire D’Arcy Drollinger’s wacky send-up of '70s sexploitation flicks.
There will also be a special advanced screening of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, the film adaptation of the award-winning musical from London’s West End.
Honoring the work of past aGLIFF filmmakers, this year’s Legacy Honoree will be director Madeleine Olnek. To celebrate her work, Olnek’s 2011 feature Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same will screen this year at PRISM 34.
