The Freedom Film Festival is coming to the Hard Rock Cafe.
The two-day festival, part of the Michelob Light: Summer at the Movies series, will take place in an air-conditioned tent outside the cafe.
The event is free and open to the public.
The festival begins at 8:30 p.m. Friday with several comedy shorts, including: "Six and the City," a parody of the HBO series, which recently ended its six-year run; "Gaydar," about a ray gun that can determine sexual orientation; and "Groomed," the story of two straight men who marry each other for the benefits.
The feature-length film "Blackball," starring Vince Vaughn and James Cromwell in the story of rival lawn bowling players, plays at 10:15 p.m.
Saturday, two films will be screened:
"Ghosts of Hamliton Street," a "Twlight Zone"-type tale involving men and women who disappear from Brody Campbell's life, changing his history and reality in the process, plays at 8:30 p.m.
And "American Cousins," the story of two Italian-American mobsters who relocate to Scotland, where they help out a cousin with his fish fry business, plays at 10:15 p.m.
There's also a two-hour filmmaker seminar scheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday. Tickets to the seminar are $25.
