Peccadillo Pictures, the leading film distributor for Lgbt films in the UK, is taking a selection of the best contemporary Lgbt films from around the world on a nationwide roadshow festival called POUTfest. From June to September, a provocative and entertaining selection of international feature films and brand new British gay short films will be touring cinemas up and down the country prior to some receiving theatrical releases.
Supported by the BFI with National Lottery funding, the POUTfest tour aims to grow a national audience for new Lgbt cinema, with emphasis on providing access to regional audiences who in many cases have not previously been able to enjoy Lgbt cinema locally. Talent from the films are expected to attend screenings, and there will also be Skype Q&As, pre-recorded interviews, additional content and local personalities who will host panels and discussions related to the films.

Generally speaking, “hammy” isn't my idea of effective film acting. For that reason, I usually find Chevalier a major handicap to his movies, especially during the early talkie era; he upsets their dramatic (or comedic) balance much like Jack Nicholson in Martin Scorsese's The Departed or Jerry Lewis in anything (excepting Scorsese's The King of Comedy »
