Beyond the full-length films, Cinevegas will also showcase a cluster of gay-related short films including:
· A four-minute film made in college by Milk star James Franco called The Feast of Stephen, based on the hyper-homoerotic poem by Anthony Hecht
· The woman-on-the-verge-of-a-nervous-breakdown-thanks-to-her-crazy-shrink tale Countertransference, which won Best Dramatic Short at the 2008 Outfest
· Nancy Boy, about a neo-Nazi tormented by gay desire
· The Transformation of Genesis P-Orridge, a true story about a transgender woman's desire to look identical to her deceased transgender lover
· The Young and Evil, about a self-destructive gay teen bent on acquiring HIV who aggressively pursues an AIDS prevention counselor
Cinevegas runs June 10-15 at the Brenden Theatres at the Palms Hotel-Casino. For more information and for tickets, visit Cinevegas.com .
