ACCESS AIDS Care & The LGBT Center of Hampton Roads
are very excited to announce the 3rd Annual LGBT Film Festival.
Save the date for February 3-7, 2015.
This festival is a community-focused event with the goal and purpose of exposing, educating, and introducing the lifestyle, struggles, joys, and hardships of the Queer community through the world of film and media.
For years, the Queer community is kept silent or unrecognized in the world of film; and our struggles are kept limited and hidden from public eye. Today, that has changed and hundreds of writers, actors, and filmmakers are fighting against the "status Quo" of what is expected on TV and the movie screen; and this festival is to honor and commemorate those filmmakers who are not afraid to make films for the Queer community, because it may not be what the "traditional audiences" want but they don't care, and this festival is to commemorate and honor those brave people.
