N La Gay & Lesbian Film Fest opens with former Shreveporter Dudley Beene and "First Period" on Fri, Sept 6, 7 pm

“First Period” opens the fifth annual Gay and Lesbian Film Fest on Fri, Sept 6, 7 pm, says Adrienne Critcher. The site is Robinson Film Center.

The producer, lead actor, and Shreveport native of "First Period," Dudley Beene, will be at RFC for the film and will do a Q & A afterwards. Beene has been doing quite well for himself out in Los Angeles, notes Critcher, and “First Period” is showing at film festivals across the country as you can see at

Beene was pleasantly surprised to find that there’s a gay & lesbian film festival in his hometown.

The film’s director, Charlie Vaughn, will also be here for the Q & A. Vaughn has already won a “Best Director” for “First Period” at the L.A. comedy film festival Quirkfest.

"We’re very excited about this year’s festival," says Brad Campbell: "11 feature films and an evening of shorts!"
