LGBTQ Film Festivals Coast To Coast

By Charlotte Robinson, April 07, 2022

On the east coast Boston’s Wicked Queer Film Festival returns in person & virtual from April 7th to 17th after being virtual only for two years & then OUTshine LGBTQ+ Film Festival Miami is back, bolder, brighter & in-person beginning April 22nd through May 1st. Then on the west coast Outfest Fusion QTBIPOC Film Festival runs from April 8th to 17th with ten days of in-person & virtual screenings & events that showcase the work of today’s leading storytellers. At Outfest Fusion attendees can also participate in nearly a dozen free community workshops, industry master classes, a One Minute Movie Contest, pitch competitions & live performances. The mission of Outfest Fusion is not only to amplify these voices but also to provide access & resources specific to the needs of the QTBIPOC community. The programming at Outfest Fusion exists to directly close & challenge the systemic access gap for LGBTQ+ people of color. At Outfest Fusion they’re opening the 2022 festival on April 8th at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center with a special awards presentation honoring Stephanie Beatriz (Encanto, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) with the Fusion Achievement Award & Sandra Oh (Killing Eve, The Chair, Umma) with the James Schamus Ally Award starting at 7:30P. This is only the beginning of the night as they screen a range of short films showcasing the caliber of Outfest Fusion talent. After the screening there will be an after party in the fabulous courtyard of the JACCC for a late-night bash to remember. Tickets are $35. For More Info…
