NewFest's annual Pride Week screening and party, in partnership with NYC Pride and SVA Theatre

An annual celebratory screening and party during PRIDE


A spirited celebration on the Monday of Pride Week in June, OutCinema features a crowd-pleasing film, Q&A and party at Chelsea’s SVA Theatre.

Presented in partnership with NYC Pride and SVA Theatre, this rousing event kicks off a highly anticipated week of jubilant festivities for the city’s LGBTQ community. Launched in 2016, OutCinema highlights a celebratory film and aims to bring together LGBT audiences for a special evening. Join us for a night of film, fun, and festivities! 

In 2016, OutCinema featured Strike a Pose, a rousing documentary about Madonna’s 1990 Blonde Ambition tour dancers and their impact on LGBTQ expression and culture. Two of the film’s subjects, Jose Xtravaganza and Salim Gauwloos, were in attendance for the emotional reunion and buzzy afterparty. 

The 2nd Annual OutCinema will take place on Monday, June 19th, 2017.

Our 2017 program will be announced in mid-April. To hear more information and receive updates on OutCinema, sign up for our mailing list.
