It’s presented by the Martha’s Vineyard Film Society & runs May 6th to 8th in Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts. It’s the first & only festival of its kind on the Vineyard & adds to the Film Society’s consistent efforts to broach subject matter not usually covered by major Hollywood motion pictures. The Festival draws moviegoers from Cape Cod & the Islands as well as the greater Boston area & beyond. Following the theme implied by the name of the festival “Spectrum” presents a prism of wide-ranging films that originate from various countries covering LGBTQ story-lines & combine comedy, drama, romance & documentary genres.
