QFest tends to be less about showing all the latest releases ''but instead more about identifying and highlighting evolving trends,'' says QFest Executive Director Kristian Salinas, who adds that documentaries are big this year. ''Younger filmmakers are less concerned with coming out and more interested in portraying being gay as simply a given.'' The festival closes Sunday with several revivals of queer classics, including the film version of Gore Vidal's scandalous (for the 1960s) novel Myra Breckinridge; William Friedkin's Cruising and an accompanying doc, Portrait of Jason.
