Short but strong: Gina Rogers, Cady Huffman, Robert Gant and Spencer Daniels are the um, er, perfect family in Billy's Dad Is a Fudge-Packer, part of Q Cinema's Our Shorts Are Showing short film festival.
The name of Q Cinema's movie night terrifies us. See, we haven't donned a pair of shorts in 10 years. Since May 29, 1995, in fact. And even then, we were wearing tights. Thus, Q Cinema's Our Shorts Are Showing: Best-of-the-Fest Edition made us a little squeamish, 'cause, well, we thought we'd be required to wear the skimpy little things. Then we found that it's all right because Q Cinema is showcasing the best short films from the seventh annual Fort Worth Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival. Titles include Speak Up, Clay Pride, dare, Billy's Dad Is a Fudge-Packerand Recruiting. The screening is outdoors at Hot Shots, 651 Jennings Ave. in Fort Worth, and admission is free. Because the venue is a bar, minors 18 to 20 will be required to pay a $5 cover charge. We'll be there...in our capris, thanks. Call 817-462-3368 or check out www.qcinema.org.
