AGLIFF BLOOM 2010 Party Preview-Watch a painting by Austin artist David Sweeney grow in 13 parts.

2010 July 22

Did y’all know that Austin is home of the longest running Gay and Lesbian Film Festivals in the Southwest? Yup. AGLIFF (Austin Gay and Lesbian Independent Film Festival) celebrates its 23rd anniversary this year. And while the festival itself isn’t until this fall, queers and friends can help raise money for the nonprofit this FRIDAY night at the BLOOM party.

Touted as a celebration of groundbreaking artists, the Bloom party promises to “challenge the status quo and buck tradition across all mediums including digital, canvas, performance, photography, theatre, dance, sculpture, film and mixed media.” With your admission, you’ll also receive live musical performances and FREE BOOZE! See the full list of artists and performers here.

And if you buy your ticket online, it will only cost $30, $15 less than the price for entry if you buy tickets at the door.
