More to love

Finding queer and queer-tinged gems at the festival


Too short to be a deep-tissue massage, Touch is more of a flirtatious caress. Diana Foster is a high-strung businesswoman. But a sensual massage from a new masseuse helps relieve the tension.

The gayest part: Massage oil

For gay men, what’s worse than getting older? Having your false teeth sucked out of your face by a 28-year-old lover? Being locked in a coffin? Masturbating in the closet of a sleeping straight couple? All of the above, if you believe this Josh Levy-directed short starring Scott Thompson.

The gayest part: Kids in the Hall alum Scott Thompson. Duh

Zach and Zach: Real Men Fight

A silly diversion, Zach and Zach: Real Men Fight tells the story of two college-aged roommates fighting over a girl. Well, fight is the wrong word. Wrestling is more like it. In shiny varsity wrestling singlets. In a park. So cute!

The gayest part: adorable, mincing vocal affectations

I Still Love Them (Je les aime encore)

This French-Canadian documentary short follows elderly Michel as he speaks about his lifelong love of women. From the opening frames — shot on Michel’s bed — this film is impossible to turn away from. An honest portrayal of sexuality and aging.

The gayest part: if you squint, Michel looks like a lesbian
