S.F. LGBT film
festival turns 30, announces lineup

French director Francois Ozon to receive 2006 Frameline Award.

The San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival, which turns the big 3-0 this year, announced an eclectic mix of fare as part of its lineup.

The festival, taking place June 15-25, will feature 266 films, with local movies sharing space with titles from Iceland, India, and Nigeria. The event is also being referred to as Frameline30 to mark the third decade of the festival's existence.

Frameline 30's opening-night movie is Puccini for Beginners, a romantic comedy directed by Maria Maggenti (The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love). Closing the festival will be the Spanish film Queens, directed by Manuel Gomez Pereira and centering on a mass wedding of same-sex couples. Eleven feature films at Frameline30 will be world premieres.

French director Francois Ozon, who directed well-received films like 8 Women, Swimming Pool, and Under the Sand, will be presented with the 2006 Frameline Award at a June 20 screening of his latest film, Time to Leave. (The Advocate)
