NEW DELHI: Five prominent American films will be screened in a special LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) festival to be held in the capital next week.

The American Centre has organized the festival, which will be held from 25 to 27 June.

The opening film is the 2001 film Kissing Jessica Stein by Charles Herman-Wurmfeld and stars Jennifer Westfeldt, Heather Juergensen and Tovah Feldshuh. It is about a woman out to find a perfect man, ending up finding the perfect woman instead.

The other films include the Brokeback Mountain (2005), which is American epic romantic drama directed by Ang Lee. It is a film adaptation of the 1997 short story of the same name by Annie Proulx. The film stars Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Michelle Williams and Randy Quaid. The movie depicts the complex emotional and sexual relationship between two men in the American West from 1963 to 1983.

Also screened will be But I?m a Cheerleader, which is a 1999 satirical romantic comedy film directed by Jamie Babbit with Natasha Lyonne starring as Megan Bloomfield, a high school cheerleader whose parents send her to a residential inpatient conversion therapy camp to cure her lesbianism and she comes to embrace her sexual orientation, despite the therapy, and falls in love. The supporting cast includes Melanie Lynskey, Dante Basco, Eddie Cibrian, Clea DuVall, Cathy Moriarty, RuPaul, Richard Moll, Mink Stole, Kip Pardue, Michelle Williams and Bud Cort.

Lead with Love directed by Jenny Mackenzkie is a poignant film that follows the true stories of four families' experiences in learning that they have a lesbian, gay, or bisexual child and then going to psychiatrists etc for help.

The closing film is Boys Don?t Cry, a 1999 American independent romantic drama film directed by Kimberly Peirce and co-written by Andy Bienen. The film is a dramatization of the real-life story of Brandon Teena, a transman played in the film by Hilary Swank, who is beaten, raped and murdered by his male acquaintances after they discover he is transgender. The film explores the themes of freedom, courage, identity and empowerment.
