The 9th Annual Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival Official Launch Party
Saddle up and see a movie!
Scalo Northern Italian Grill,
Saturday, September 17, 6:30-9pm
Closet Cinema is excited to begin the 9th Annual Southwest Gay and Lesbian
Film Festival with it’s official Launch Party on Saturday, September 17,
2011 at Scalo Northern Italian Grill!
There’s no better place than Albuquerque’s finest Italian restaurant for a
party celebrating the ninth fantastic year of SWGLFF. Held from 6:30 to
9pm, this gathering is your chance to sample some of the finest food in town
while getting to know other fabulous film fanatics. Of course, a cash bar
will also be available for those interested in buying that special film buff
a drink (or two!).
Party attendees will be among the first in New Mexico to know which films
are playing and who is hosting the many festival parties being held
throughout the week-long, multi-city event. The staff of Closet Cinema will
be on hand to distribute hot-off-the-press copies of the 2011 Program Guide,
detailing the when and where of this year’s films from around the world.
Tickets to the Launch party will be sold at the door for $25. All members of
Closet Cinema get a $5 discount. Those who become members at the party get
in for free!
Special thanks go out to all of the sponsors and advertisers of this year’s
Southwest Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. Without their generous support,
SWGLFF, and parties like this one, would not be possible. All Launch party
attendees will be entered in a raffle for some great prizes from
participating businesses and sponsors.
In just nine short years, the Southwest Gay and Lesbian Film Festival has
grown to be the Southwest’s premiere gay and lesbian event! Be a part of
it—come out and support Closet Cinema at the 2011 SWGLFF Launch Party,
Saturday, September 17, 2011 at Scalo Italian Grill, 3500 Central Avenue SE
