BENT-CON: Flix After Dark
A special event during Bent-Con 2011, BENT-CON: Flix
After Dark! It’s a festival within a festival, with even more
special movie premieres, awesome guests and incredible fun! (And popcorn.)
What’s more, if you are already attending the
festival, it doesn’t cost you anything extra! If you bought
a Saturday-only pass, it’ll get you in to the event. If you
bought a Sunday-only pass, you can come, too! Weekend passes? Like
there’s any question you can attend. If you haven’t purchased
a pass at all? It’s $15 dollars at the door — and you
can come back on Sunday for the regular, day festival itself. It’s
total and complete awesomeness on all fronts.
And much, much more!
Check their website for the latest news on activities,
events, and prizes. This is one full weekend!
What is BENT-CON?
BENT-CON is the convention that encourages,
celebrates and appreciates LGBT and LGBT-friendly comic-book, scifi,
fantasy and horror artists, writers, creators, publishers, directors,
actors, and producers, that create media targeted directly to LGBT
audiences or the larger realm of underground and mainstream pop-culture
as a whole.
But it’s just easier to think of it like a Comic-Con, only
BENT-CON is committed to encouraging the vast talent
and creativity within a queer and queer-friendly environment for
those passionate about sharing their respective talents with YOU
