    The Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival (aGLIFF) announced their entire 2015 film line up this week. This year’s festival will take place from September 10th thru 13th at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar.

    The 28th season will open with the Texas premiere of director Andrew Nackman’s Fourth Man Out starring Chord Overstreet, Parker Young, Kate Flannery, and Evan Todd. Fourth Man Out won the Narrative Audience Award at the Inside Out festival in Toronto and the Dramatic Audience Award at Outfest in Los Angeles. Director Nackman, Producer Lauren Avinoam and star Todd are expected to attend opening night.

    Closing aGLIFF 2015 will be Jeff Kaufman’s documentary The State of Marriage which recently world premiered at the Provincetown Film Festival. The untold story is how legal pioneer Mary Bonauto partnered with small town Vermont lawyers Beth Robinson and Susan Murray in a two-decade long struggle that built the foundation for the entire marriage equality movement and how Vermont became the first state in the U.S. to introduce civil unions in 2000 and same sex marriages in 2009.

    This year’s highly impressive film slate includes several other festival standouts such as Francois Ozon’s The New Girlfriend, Peter Greenaway’s Eisenstein in Guanajuato, Pat Mills’ Guidance, Sebastian Silva’s Nasty Baby, and Jenni Olson’s The Royal Road.

    aGLIFF 2015 will feature more than 70 films with over 35 visiting filmmakers. Festival badges are on sale at www.agliff.org and individual film tickets will go on sale August 30th.
