The 12th annual Los Angeles International Gay & Lesbian Film & Video Festival, which will present more than 200 works July 7-17 at the Directors Guild, 7920 Sunset Blvd., gets off to a terrific start with the Thursday 8 p.m. premiere of "To Die For," a sure-fire British heart-tugger written by Johnny Byrne and directed by Peter Mackenzie Litten, who've given a fresh spin to the popular Hollywood ghost lover genre.

Outfest '99, the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, which shows more movies than any other festival in Los Angeles, opens at 8 tonight at the Pantages Theatre, 6233 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood. The curtain rises on the 17th festival with a gala presentation of Lukas Moodysson's beguiling "Show Me Love," a wry coming-of-age story that could as easily unfold in any small American city as it does in Sweden.
