Local DVD distributor Love Films has a good selection of gay films available – many of which played as part of the Melbourne Queer Film Festival earlier this year, including Keep the Lights On, chronicling a troubled relationship plagued by addiction, and I Do, the story of a British man in New York and his attempts to find a green card and the love of his life.
Just released is Out in the Dark, a love story between Palestinian student Nimr (Nicholas Jacob) and Israeli lawyer Roy (Michael Aloni) who meet one night in a Tel Aviv bar. Naturally they fall in love, but their opposing cultures and families create quite a few problems for the two of them. It’s an engaging story set in a fascinating city, and is much more than just another gay romance. Also look out for rom-com Gayby, the fun and cheeky MQFF opening night film. It's released on DVD by Love Films in October.
Out in the Dark is available in JB Hi-Fi’s Queer Sections in the CBD, Prahran and Camberwell stores.
