By Charlotte Robinson, February 27, 2022

Pride Arts Spring International Film Festival will feature 32 LGBTQ shorts in a 4 week program that will stream from March 14th to April 11th. The films will be shown over 4 separate programs of approximately ninety minutes per program with each program streaming for one week. The first week of the festival will present 10 musical films from the US, Germany, Australia, Spain & Botswana. They range from a music video of an original love song inspired by marriage activist Edie Windsor through films that tell their stories through dance, others through song, a documentary about dancers, & some short but complete musicals. Themes of the second week’s films explore relationships at opposite ends of the age spectrum from young love to a couple dealing with the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease. Some of the third week’s films explore prejudice & discrimination against people with queer identities. One film considers the challenges of sexual relations during the quarantine. Featured in the fourth & closing week of the festival are films concerned with identity & self-image as an LGBTQ person, challenges of romantic relationships & a shocking film about a hate crime. Access to each program of shorts in the PrideArts Fall Film Festival will be $10 which will grant viewing of the program or feature purchased for a full week allowing audiences greater flexibility in viewing the films at their leisure. Full festival passes for all four weeks are also available for $25.
