OUT OF THE BOX: Different Thinking Films for Different Thinking People
Out of the Box is a showcase for films that expand the offerings of films normally associated with a GLBT Film Festival. This edition highlights a cult-like, b-movie thriller, that is outrageously campy and outlandishly fun and way, way, way over the top.

Noel Coward grew up in poverty and left school when he was only nine years old. He was queer in a very straight world. And yet by the age of 30, he was the highest paid writer in the world and a star on the Broadway stage, movie screens and even writing and performing music. And if that wasn’t enough, he was also a spy during the Second World War! Against all odds, Noel Coward became the most successful multi-talented artist of the Twentieth Century. He defined an era and led an extraordinary life. This is his inspirational story told in his own words and music, and unique home movies.
