April 26th-28th 2024
This Queer Film festival is the first of its kind in the city of Newark and the state of NJ to focus on LGBTQIA+ BIPOC film makers, directors, and actors specifically those from Newark and the surrounding areas. The festival also holds the shared goal of the center to create a safe, inclusive environment for the LGBTQ community in Newark and beyond.

Our mission is to amplify the voices, vision and works of film that would otherwise struggle to find a mainstream audience but have a significant impact in raising awareness around lives and issues of queer people and queer communities of color. This event brings people together while celebrating the rich history and bright future of artistic contributions from the LGBTQIA+ BIPOC community in Newark and beyond.
Soon we will announce more details about how to get tickets for the film screenings, talk back panels with filmmakers and our opening night cocktail reception.
