Pensacola is a vibrant, growing city on the gulf coast of Northwest Florida. Last year the 4 day Festival had audiences of over 200 people per night and is continuing to grow. The festival attracts many viewers and enthusiasts both local and from the surrounding areas. Since its inception the festival has garnered growing support from the city and the local business community, demonstrating Pensacola's evolving attitude towards cultural and social diversity.
The Pensacola LGBT Film Festival highlights the artistic contributions both nationally and internationally of lesbian, gay, bi and transgender (LGBT) films and filmmakers. The unique ability of film to transcend stereotypes and relate to the viewer opens the door to a dialogue about the LGBT experience, building a stronger and more open Pensacola.
