Hummingbird Meadows, drag artist of West Hollywood, will appear at GlennFest Film Festival for the la Cage aux Folles after party, on Wednesday, October 5. The after party is drag theme–a nod to the la cage aux Folles night club in the film–and will present two songs by Hummingbird Meadows. The Epic Lounge will host the event at the conclusion of the film screening.
Hummingbird Meadows has participated in numerous drag shows and performances in the Los Angeles area, including Men in Heels, Micky’s Showgirls, and Once Upon a Time into the Woods. She currently works at Micky’s of West Hollywood.
La Cage aux Folles follows Ugo Tognazzi and Michel Serrault as two gay men living in St. Tropez. They are forced to change their ways when their son announces his engagement and invites the fiancée and her parents for dinner. They try to conceal their lifestyle and their ownership of the drag club downstairs during their stay.
Each and every year, GlennFest Film Festival is made possible by our generous sponsors. In order for us to continue providing films to the Downey community at no cost, we need to meet our yearly goal in sponsorship. In previous years, we have been aided by the following organizations:
- Downey Arts Coalition
- SEIU Local 721 American’s with Disabilities Caucus
- SEIU Lavender Caucus
- Running Bear Media
Now it’s your time to shine! Every donation brings us a step closer to our goal. Help us continue to provide free films to communities, and we’ll help you by publicizing your name, product, or business at our festival. Our festival is attended by hundreds of people each year–that’s hundreds of new patrons who will learn about your service.
If you’re interested in sponsoring, please contact the festival director, Glenn Stephens, via email.
We have officially selected the dates for our 2016 film festival! It will begin on Saturday, September 24, and conclude on Sunday, October 9. We will announce our selections once we have them. Stay tuned!!
