Special FREE screening of NewFest 2000's Opening Night Film
A taffy-colored throwback, this hilarious camp classic stars indie darling Natasha Lyonne as a teenager who's been sent off to "rehab" camp by priggish parents and friends who suspect she's queer and riffs on ostensibly outmoded conversion therapy procedures. Featuring a highly-stylized production design inspired by John Waters and a talented and diverse ensemble cast, BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER achieves a perfect blend between a sexy, charming love story and a razor-sharp, (still) topical social satire.
Co-Presented with Ace Hotel New York
