NewFest COVID-19 Update
Prioritizing the health and safety of our community
In accordance with public safety guidelines surrounding the spread of COVID-19 in New York City, NewFest has temporarily paused all in-person screenings and year-round events through mid-June.
The 32nd Annual LGBTQ Film Festival is still planned for October 21-27; as we continue to receive news on COVID-19’s extended impact, we will provide any updates on or changes to the festival here and via our mailing list. In the meantime, filmmakers, please continue submitting your wonderful work!
While our in-person gatherings are on hold, be sure to check out NewFest Now, our virtual screening room, and our recommendations on what queer films to stream by joining our mailing list and following our social media channels.
We hope you are staying healthy and safe, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
