Nov. 4–6: Cinema Celebration in Santa Rosa


One of wine country’s fastest-growing film festivals, OUTwatch, marks its third year with an offering of five feature films and three thought-provoking documentaries focused on LGBTQI issues revolving around the theme of “More Than Meets the Eye.” Screenings include ‘Political Animals,’ a documentary about fighting for LGBT equality in the California State Assembly. ‘Real Boy’ follows a young man finding his voice as a transgender singer-songwriter. And ‘Hunky Dory’ is a gritty and heart-warming film about a bisexual bohemian drag queen caring for his precocious pre-teen son. Special events include an opening-night party, live entertainment and more. OUTwatch runs Friday to Sunday, Nov. 4–6, at Third Street Cinemas, 620 Third St., Santa Rosa. $10–$75.
