The Gay Films of the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival

This year's crop of movies screening at the Tribeca Film Festival feature several new gay films that should not be missed.



This weekend is the final weekend for the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. This year features great new gay films making their Tribeca premieres, and there are still screenings of the films before the festival ends. The following pages highlight some of the gay cinema offerings in this year’s festival, and if you are in the New York area, you don't want to miss out on these.

Big Joy

A documentary about the radical poet and experimental filmmaker, James Broughton. Part of the San Francisco literary group that preceded the beatniks, and other poets (such as Allen Ginsburg), Big Joy showcases an unconventional life of someone who truly thought outside the box, and was applauded for doing so. An artist not really known outside of certain poetry and literary circles, this documentary is an excellent primer lesson on one of the most inspirational gay voices of the twentieth century.
