The Fourth Annual GayCharlotte Film Festival kicks off this evening with a 7 p.m. screening of Circumstance, a drama about an Iranian family whose members include a lesbian daughter and her brother, a religious zealot. All told, the festival will present seven features and four shorts through March 24. Most of the screenings will be held at the Mint Museum Uptown, although a couple will take place at other venues around town.

Other movies on the schedule include Spin the Bible, a locally filmed (i.e. Charlotte and Lake Norman) short that mixes lesbians, preachers and anti-gay politicians; another Carolina-centric title, From Hollywood to Bollywood, about gay twins from Goldsboro who try to meet Dolly Parton; and Longhorns, a comedy centering on Texas frat boys and promising "beer, steers ... and a whole lot of queers!"

Admission is $8 per film; admission to the short-film block on Saturday, March 24, is free. For complete details, including titles, times, venues and ticket orders, go here.
