Next month brings the return of CinemaQ, Denver's Queer film festival at Sie FilmCenter on Colfax Avenue.

Sie FilmCenter announced the lineup Monday, with a range of short films, documentaries, true crime flicks as well as a coming of age story featuring both Aubrey Plaza and a mushroom trip.

The festival runs from Aug. 8-11 and tickets are on sale now. Entire passes cost $60 for members and $75 for nonmembers, while individual tickets are $12 for members and $15 for nonmembers.

A new portion of the program, BLQ, partners with Black Pride Colorado for events and screenings of movies focused on Black queer experiences. That portion of the program will include "I'm Your Venus" and "Any Other Way: The Jackie Shane Story." Plus there's a mixer event and a panel with artists.

"Together we have created BLQ, a new track at CinemaQ to explore Black Lives Queerly and ensure that all folks in the community have the opportunity to see themselves and come together to celebrate, watch and discuss," said Sie FilmCenter Artistic Director Keith Garcia.
