If you are an LGBT filmmaker, film lover, or an overall supporter of the LGBT community, you should not miss attending the San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival from June 20th to the 30th. Not only is this unique event the oldest in the LGBT film industry, it is one of the largest and is one of the most successful events to promote equality and understanding of the gay community.


The Golden Gate Bridge, the famed street cars, and the eclectic Haight-Ashbury district serve as the backdrop to the San Francisco LGBT Film Festival. Come explore the city, while taking in hundreds of feature films from across the globe. Film entries are dazzling and through-provoking.

The city’s historic, beautiful movie houses will not disappoint attendees.


Presented by Frameline (, the film festival has seen attendance of up to 80 thousand participants. The crowds are always exciting during the event, and the city will also be electric. Dating back to 1977, the long history of the San Francisco LGBT Film Festival is a testament to its past success. This year will be the 37th time this event has taken place and it is expected to be as fun, entertaining, informative, and successful as any previous year.


The ultimate goal of the film festival, aside from entertainment, is to advocate for and represent the LGBT community.
