What we're about
Welcome to the NewFest community featuring LGBTQ films! We are New York’s LGBT Film and Media Arts Organization, dedicated to bringing together filmmakers and audiences to build a community that passionately supports LGBT cinema and storytelling while giving voice and visibility to a wide range of the LGBT experience.
We present year-round screenings and events that include New York’s annual LGBT Film Festival every October, which began in 1988. We are committed to nurturing emerging LGBT and allied filmmakers and support those artists who are willing to take risks in telling the stories that fully reflect the diversity and complexity of our lives.
Join us for our ongoing community events and help support the work of our artists.
