Major titles announced include Disobedience, which stars Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams. A woman returns to her Orthodox Jewish community that shunned her for her attraction to a female childhood friend. Once back, their passions reignite as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality. The film is directed by Sebastián Lelio (A Fantastic Woman).

Also confirmed to screen at the festival is The Miseducation of Cameron Post, starring Chloë Grace Moretz and Jennifer Ehle. Based on the book of the same name by Emily M. Danforth, the film tells of Cameron Post, a 12 year old Montana girl, who is sent to a ‘de-gaying’ conversion camp after her parents die in a car crash and she is sent to live with her conservative aunt. The film will also have a special screening at Pálás in Galway as part of GAZE on tour.

GAZE programmer Roisín Geraghty said “

“This year’s programme, while including something for all audiences, is also a reflection of what a year it has been for women – in portrayals on screen, behind the camera, and social shifts in the feminist movement. “

The opening film on Thursday August 2nd is Riot, which celebrates LGBT trailblazers Down Under, telling the story of the roots of Mardi Gras and the start of the long road to their Yes vote for marriage equality. The closing film of the festival is the inspirational story of Scott Jones, following the story of this young gay musician who was attacked and paralysed from the waist down. It captures both the trauma and triumph of its character’s journey in a respectful, loving and nuanced way.
