Phoenix's only LGBT-focused film festival, Desperado, is coming back to the Paradise Valley Community College in January 2014. Although the film schedule has yet to be announced for the upcoming incarnation, last year featured a mix of locally and nationally made independent films with an eye toward queer issues. Tickets for the event can be bought per screening, but for the next few days you can get an all-access pass at a steal of a price.
Regular single screening passes for the fest's last edition were $10. In 2014, you can be sure to catch all the festival has to offer, which will include about 20 screenings if it's anything like last year's event, with a $65 all-access pass. From now until Friday, November 15, you can snatch up one of these early bird VIP tickets, which includes entrance to the event's reception and priority seating at all screenings.
Although the LGBT-specific twist on this film festival may seem othering, the festival was founded on principles of inclusion, cross-cultural communication, and the need for positive social change. Films like Raid of the Rainbow Lounge, a documentary about a controversial police raid on a Texas gay bar in 2009, and the erotic A Perfect Ending, which is about orgasms and girl-on-girl love, show the festival's range from serious to sexual and light-hearted.
