Trans, lesbian, bi, straight, or gay — you label it — Boston LGBT Film Fest has it all
It’s a bit of a cliché to say that a film festival offers “something for everyone,” but the Boston LGBT Film Festival, now in its 27th year, really does. Proving that film is indeed universal, the festival’s mission is to use film to reach out to a broad cross-section of the community and inspire connection.
Launched in 1984, the Boston LGBT Film Festival is among the oldest in the country but organizers have hardly rested on its reputation. They work hard all year, partnering with other film festivals and organizations, to keep the event fresh and relevant to audiences. Not only does the festival present new films from all over the world, many of them area premieres, but they also integrate them into diverse programming aimed at education, activism and awareness.
