We’re in the process of finalizing our merger with OutFest through government grants, not-for-profit filings and the formation of a national board. This national arts organization will positively impact the culture of the LGBT community and extend the reach of their programs.
Where Films Come Out
Through the New York LGBT film festival, presented annually since 1988, and year-round programming, NewFest celebrates fine domestic and international film as part of our mission to break through closet doors and glass ceilings everywhere.
NewFest’s programming includes the annual NewFest: The New York Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Film Festival, one of the most comprehensive showcases of international LGBT film in the world as well as year-round filmmaker and screening events.
