Where Films Come Out

NewFest presents year-round screenings and events that include New York’s annual LGBT Film Festival, which began in 1988. NewFest is dedicated to bringing together filmmakers and audiences to build a community that passionately supports giving voice and visibility to a wide range of representations of the LGBT experience. We are committed to nurturing emerging LGBT and allied filmmakers. We support those artists who are willing to take risks in telling the stories that fully reflect the diversity and complexity of our lives.
