Out On Film 31st anniversary film festival at the Midtown Art Cinema

Cost: Various
Out On Film, Atlanta's LGBT film festival, opens with the amazing, Atlanta-set "When the Beat Drops." Made with love by actor/choreographer/director Jamal Sims, “When the Beat Drops” follows a crew of gay African-American men as they pioneer the Southern-rooted underground dance scene known as “bucking.” Created in the South, it was born as a response to being shunned from majorette routines, due largely to homophobia. Together with his crew of fellow gay African-American men, Anthony Davis- an Atlanta-born kid with a love of dance - helped grow bucking into a national movement, complete with fierce competitions. In the process, Davis has created a haven for a generation of displaced black gay men. Filled with spectacular dance sequences, “When the Beat Drops” closes with a suspenseful, masterfully-filmed competition between a rival team that has to be seen to be believed. Midtown Art Cinema
