Sundance Film Festival 2014 LGBT wrap-up

Documentary about Robert De Niro's gay dad surprises many

Peter Knegt shares his favourite queer flicks from the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The festival had a surprisingly strong batch of LGBT films this year. Watch our video report to learn what will be heating up the 2014 festival circuit.

The 2014 Sundance Film Festival, which ran from Jan 16 to 26 in Park City, Utah, had a surprisingly large number of LGBT films in its lineup. One in particular garnered a lot of buzz: Remembering the Artist Robert De Niro, Sr, a documentary about Robert De Niro's father, who was gay. The actor (star of the film Dog Day Afternoon, among many others) has not spoken publicly before about his father's sexuality. His father died in 1993.   

Other films of note include Joe Manganiello's new documentary about a Texas strip bar, called La BareLove Is Strange, by Ira Sachs, whose previous film, Keep the Lights On, was a hit back in 2012; and indie darling Gregg Araki's White Bird in a Blizzard.

In the above video interview, Peter Knegt talks with Nic Kazamia about these films and more from Sundance 2014.
