SHORTS: Queerly Beloved (Outdoor Screening) - NewFest


Celebrate NYC Pride with an illuminating showcase of LGBTQIA+ stories from around the world.


Free Outdoor Screening
Fort Greene Park

Queerly beloved, we are gathered here today for an unforgettable night of shorts that showcase the varied and vivid experiences of the LGBTQIA+ community. Watch as a nonbinary new parent clashes with the clueless organizers of a mommy and me class, witness the fleeting romance of one magic night in Lisbon, and witness an older man’s journey as he leaves his wife for a mysterious, masked stranger. These films are more than just stories, they’re a celebration of resilience, love, and found families. With widespread, aggressive anti-trans legislature and queerphobic violence happening worldwide, liberation is more important than ever, and oftentimes, representation feels like everything. Take pride, and join us for a night of illuminating shorts that showcase queer filmmakers and subjects from around the world.
