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.

Featured films go live on the first Thursday of the month and remain available to stream throughout the weekend. Screenings include a Q&A.

Youth Programs

Through screenings and talkbacks with filmmakers, NewFest’s Youth Programs create visibility for marginalized and underrepresented communities, foster allyship and self-empowerment, and encourage the next generation of queer storytellers.
