Eight new films spanning the rainbow of LGBT experience — including a Sundance prize-winner, a campy comedy and two documentaries about transgender people — are being screened at the 20th annual Long Island Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, Friday through Sunday at the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington.

“Over the years there’s become a greater awareness of the diversity of the community and I think that’s represented in the festival,” Cinema co-director Dylan Skolnick said.

Receptions and music performances are scheduled throughout the weekend.
