Everybody has that one friend who can't get their act together, but you can't help but love them to pieces anyway. For thirty-something Chrissy, that's his bestie, Judy, an endearing but perpetually messy ride-or-die who's always got more than a few cocktails in the tank.

After hustling for years together in the New York City bar scene, Judy is convinced that this is the summer their two-queen draft act will finally get its big break. That is, until Chrissy's priorities suddenly shift, forcing a disillusioned Judy to closely examine his trajectory as a queer artist, and rediscover his true self in the process.

In this dark comedy, CHRISSY JUDY peers into the underbelly of queer culture and examines the struggles gay men face in the pursuit of love, acceptance, romance, and identity. Exploring the universal pain of growing apart from your best friend, CHRISSY JUDY leaves you exploring the question, "What do you do when your chosen family no longer chooses you?"

Trailer for CHRISSY JUDY can be found HERE.

About aGLIFF:

Founded in 1987, aGLIFF is Austin's oldest film festival and became a 501(c)3 in 1995. The festival began as a four-day event with just four films primarily focused on coming out and the AIDS epidemic. It has grown into a multifaceted nonprofit organization with year-round community programs and events culminating each year in the annual PRISM film festival. Originally named the Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival (1987) the organization changed its name in 2018 to All Genders, Lifestyles, and Identities Film Festival to reflect the changing landscape of how queer people identify and now just goes by aGLIFF. In 2019, the Board of Directors selected PRISM as the festival theme to highlight the way the festival can refract a single beam of art into multiple viewpoints, showcasing all the voices in the spectrum of our LGBTQIA+ community through film.

The organization's mission is to create positive and visible film programs relevant to the lives of LGBTQIA+ identified people, to educate the community about LGBTQIA+ issues, to produce and promote the best in LGBTQIA+ community building events, and to support and partner with other organizations to enlighten the public.
