About the Festival
The Pensacola LGBT Film Festival began in 2012 as a conduit to provide a vibrant and educational experience to the Gulf Coast region, specifically Pensacola, Florida. This festival focuses on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues, with a goal of expanding the region’s diversity and acceptance of diverse identities. This mission is driven primarily by an annual film festival featuring short and feature-length documentaries and fiction films with LGBT themes and / or directors and actors.
The Pensacola LGBT Film Festival highlights the artistic contributions both nationally and internationally of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) films and filmmakers. The unique ability of film to transcend stereotypes and relate to the viewer opens the door to a dialogue about the LGBT experience, building a stronger and more open Pensacola.
