It's Time For The Ft. Lauderdale Gay and Lesbian Film Fest

Join the community as we celebrate a diverse array of LGBT films.


It’s October, which means it’s time for the Fort Lauderdale Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. We can't wait!

Join the community as we celebrate a diverse array of LGBT films. Head to the opening night party on Thursday, October 12th, which includes a reception with hors d’ oeuvres, an open bar and music with a screening of Dirty Girl, a film set in 1987 featuring Mary Steenburgen, William H. Macy, Tim McGraw, and others.

Some of our hot picks for the fest included So Hard to Forget, a Portugese film about love and loss. Vampire girls will be dying to see We Are The Night. Those looking for something French or something with a transgender sensibility should check out Tomboy, a film about Laure, a 10 year old girl who renames herself Michael. Rocker chicks can be found at Hit So Hard, a film about Patty Schemel, the hard-hitting drummer of Courtney Love's band Hole during its peak years. Wrap it all up on Sunday with Wish Me Away, Chely Wright's documentary.

We have tickets to give away! We have one double pass to give away for each of the following screenings:

  • Opening Night (including the Dirty Girl screening)
  • So Hard to Forget
  • Tomboy
  • Wish Me Away
  • The Night Watch
