The East Coast's largest LGBT film festival, now in its 17th year, heads into its final days, and director Allen Neuwirth's debut film, a documentary about ABBA songs and the drag queens who love them, is a definite highlight. He will be on hand with producer Jack Chen for the screening, which will be followed by a late-night shindig from 11 p.m.-3:30 a.m. with one of the film's featured performers, Sade Pendarvis, and DJ Jerome Farley.
