From comedy and drama to documentary and fiction, discover an array of vibrant films that speak to the depth and variety of queer experience. The Boston LGBT Film Festival provides an opportunity for film lovers of every gender and sexual identity to be united by the moving image, as we celebrate the medium’s capacity to create empathy and understanding across cultural boundaries.

This year’s lineup includes Summertime, an award-winning French drama about two women who find love in 1970’s Paris. Also, look out for Casper Andreas’ sleek thriller Kiss Me Kill Me and the ultra-cool Isreali coming of age tale Blush (pictured).
