Inside Out launch party

New director of programming confident of compelling lineup

Toronto’s Inside Out LGBT Film Festival is set to get underway on May 17. It is a festival of firsts for Andrew Murphy, in his freshman year as director of programming.

Murphy says he is confident with this year’s lineup.

“I’m really proud of the festival and the content this year,” Murphy says. “I think the opening-night film was definitely one of the favourites I have seen this year, My Brother the Devil . . . I can’t want to see the crowd’s reaction to it.”

Murphy was among the revellers at the Inside Out launch party. While it was hard to hear all that was going on, the film clips and sexy party-goers seemed to make up for it.
