Formerly known as The Boston LGBT Film Festival...
The Boston LGBT Film Festival is the largest festival of films by, for, and about the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community and their allies in New England. In 2011 the festival screened 120 films from 27 countries with over 4500 tickets sold. The Boston LGBT Film Festival is also one of the longest running film festivals in North America. Founded by film curator George Mansour in 1984, next year will be our 28th year in existence.
The annual Festival showcases international, US, and local film, video, and other media, with a focus on media that demonstrates the diversity and depth of our audience.
As New England’s premiere LGBT film organization, the Festival reaches out to the culturally rich and diverse communities of the region through Screenings on Tour and Festival Partnerships, in collaboration with other film festivals.
The Boston LGBT Film Festival aims to stimulate thought and encourage dialogue while offering exposure and continued presence for filmmakers, artists and community organizations.
