The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is proud to present this event in partnership with CAMP Rehoboth. This mini-film festival offers a selection that presents various perspectives on LGBTQ+ experiences. Collectively, these films provide a reason to celebrate how the art of film effectively communicates life experiences of yesterday, today and a hopeful tomorrow, hence the title: CINE-brations!

 

 

Transmilitary

Film Description:

Hosted by Delaware Pride

Transmilitary follows the Emmy™-nominated short film Transgender, at War and in Love. Around 15,500 transgender people serve in the U.S. military (notably the largest transgender employer in the U.S.), where they must conceal their gender identity because military policies ban their service.

Transmilitary chronicles the lives of four individuals defending their country’s freedom while fighting for their own. They put their careers and their families’ livelihoods on the line by coming out as transgender to top brass officials in the Pentagon in hopes of attaining the equal right to serve. The ban was lifted in 2016, but with President Trump now trying to reinstate it, their futures hang in the balance again. [2018, US, 92 minutes, Not Rated].

After the film, Alexandria Holder, an Active Duty Technical Sergeant in the United States Air Force with 14 years of service, will be speaking about her experience in the military.  Alexandria enlisted in 2004, and has seen duty in San Antonio, Texas; Monterrey, California; Fort Meade, Maryland; Fort Bragg, North Carolina; and Afghanistan.  Alexandria is married to her wife, Brittanie, and they live in Baltimore, Maryland, with their 4 children.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post

Film Description:

Hosted by Jim Lesko, Keith Zembower, Jan Cooper and Michael Cockey

From writer/director Desiree Akhavan and based on the celebrated novel by Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post follows Cameron (Chloë Grace Moretz) as she is sent to a gay conversion therapy center after getting caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night. Run by the strict and severe Dr. Lydia Marsh (Jennifer Ehle) and her brother, Reverend Rick (John Gallagher Jr.)—himself an example of how those in the program can be “cured”—the center is built upon repenting for “same sex attraction.” In the face of intolerance and denial, Cameron meets a group of fellow sinners including the amputee stoner Jane (Sasha Lane), and her friend, the Lakota Two-Spirit, Adam (Forrest Goodluck). Together, this group of teenagers form an unlikely family as they fight to survive. [2018, US, 90 minutes, Not Rated].

Tucked

Film Description:

Hosted by Chris Beagle, Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices-Gallo Realty

When veteran drag queen Jackie Collins receives a diagnosis with six weeks to live, all he wants to do is perform his long-running act, and behave as if all is normal. But between a surprising new friendship with a rising young queen and unfinished business with his estranged daughter, he may just have the most eventful month and a half of his life. A feel-good film with charm and humor as well as surprising insight into our evolving understanding of gender identity across generations, this marks the first queer film from prolific young British director Jamie Patterson. [2018, UK, 120 minutes, Not Rated].

The Lavender Scare

Film Description:

Hosted by Lenny Stumpf and John B. Pitchford

The Lavender Scare is the first documentary film to tell the little-known story of an unrelenting campaign by the federal government to identify and fire all employees suspected of being homosexual. In 1953, President Eisenhower declared gay men and lesbians to be a threat to the security of the country and therefore unfit for government service.

In doing so, he triggered the longest witch-hunt in American history. Over the next four decades, tens of thousands of government workers would lose their jobs for no reason other than their sexual orientation.

But the actions of the government had an unintended effect. They inadvertently helped ignite the gay rights movement. The Lavender Scare is a chilling reminder of how easy it can be, during a time of fear and uncertainty, to trample the rights of an entire class of people in the name of patriotism and national security. [2017, US, 77 minutes, Not Rated].
