A screening of the 2009 lesbian-themed movie Hannah Free will take place Saturday, April 16, at the Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St., at 3 p.m.

Among those slated to attend are cast members such as Sharon Gless, and screenwriter Claudia Allen.

'Paris Is Burning' at Logan on March 31

Paris Is Burning—Jennie Livingston's 1990 award-winning documentary about the Harlem drag-ball scene—will screen at Logan Center, 915 E. 60th St., on Thursday, March 31, at 7 p.m.

Solveig Nelson, an art critic and Ph.D. candidate in art history at the University of Chicago, will introduce the film.

Dan Savage's HUMP! festival April 8-9

Dan Savage—the writer behind the 20-year-running Savage Love advice column, LGBTQ and political activist, and co-creator of the It Gets Better Project—will run his HUMP! Film Festival at the Music Box Theater, 3733 N. Southport Ave., on April 8-9 with shows at 7 and 9:30 p.m.

The idea for the festival started in 2005, when Savage asked readers to send him homemade adult films. They did—in droves.

In addition, on Thursday, April 7, Savage will have a live recording of his podcast "Savage Lovecast" also at the Music Box, starting at 8:30 p.m. Savage will answer sex questions from the audience with some help from other revered freaks and "sexperts."

For an overview of each film and tickets for both events, check out Humpfilmfest.com .

'Two Fisted' art show starts March 25

The art show "Two Fisted: New Works & Old Friends"—featuring Victor M. Montanez's mannequins, oversized canvasses and other works—will be shown March 25-April 22 at The Blue Island Beer Co., 13357 Olde Western Ave., Blue Island.

The Blue Island Beer Co. will hold an opening reception Friday, March 25, 4-10 p.m. There will be music from various artists ( including indie-pop rockers Bambi-Raptor and the band Beat Senior ) as well as artists painting throughout the evening.

See BlueIslandBeerCo.com .
