NewFest Presents

Our curated monthly series features topical documentaries and narrative films that reflect the wide range of LGBTQ+ identities, giving audiences an opportunity to experience our stories and stay connected to the community through screenings & conversations with filmmakers and LGBTQ+ leaders.

Films will be available in-person at the LGBT Center and stream virtually. Screenings include a Q&A.

Queering the Canon

This annual retrospective series reimagines queer film canon with a special weekend celebration, shining a light on films that deserve increased recognition for their contribution to the queer canon.

Featuring a lineup of screenings + Q&A's from April 28 - May 2!
