Out on Film ended its successful festival on Oct. 7 the same way it opened – screening a film and throwing a party, this time heading to Amsterdam in Midtown.

The 23rd rendition of the gay and lesbian film festival — with scores of screenings, premieres and special guests, including reality TV player Reichen Lehmkuhl – kicked off Oct. 1 with the local premiere of “You Should Meet My Son!” at Landmark Midtown Art Cinema and an afterparty at Hotel Palomar.

imageFor Out on Film’s closing, director Rob Williams was on hand for the screening of his “Role/Play: The Movie” and a closing party at Amsterdam.

“The climate out there made me want to do something political,” Williams told Project Q Atlanta ahead of the screening. “I did realize, though, that if you want to use dialogue-heavy scenes, you need to have something else as well, such as nudity or boys at the pool.”
