Queens World Film Festival w/ Post-Show Panel + Reception

FRI, JUN 7, 2024
7:00 PM

Join us for an unforgettable celebration of LGBTQ+ voices through film in partnership with Queens World Film Festival's "Taking Pride in the Community" for a short screening followed by post-show panel + reception. This special festival highlights diverse stories and perspectives from the LGBTQ+ community, showcasing the power of film to inspire, educate, and bring people together. Embracing one’s true self in the face of societal expectations and cultural norms is the thread that binds these stories together to celebrate the resilience, strength, and beauty of the LGBTQ+ experience.

The Films: Post-Show Panel:
After the screenings, engage with filmmakers, actors, and LGBTQ+ advocates during an insightful panel discussion hosted by Gonzalo Casals. Gonzalo, the former Commissioner of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs is also the co-founder and co-director of the Culture & Arts Policy Institute, a not-for-profit organization that addresses critical systemic challenges.

Cap Off The Evening With A Vibrant Reception:
  • Gain deeper insights into the creative processes, challenges, and triumphs faced by those bringing these important stories to life.
  • Mingle with fellow attendees, filmmakers, and panelists while enjoying light refreshments.
  • Celebrate the spirit of community and the impact of LGBTQ+ cinema in an inclusive and welcoming environment.
