The mission of the North Louisiana Gay & Lesbian Film Festival is to recognize the important contributions that LGBT people have made to our culture; to educate the general population and raise awareness of LGBT concerns, as well as effect change in the political arena; and to investigate the history of LGBT people in film, including the stereotyping that has been a major part of this history and to counteract this stereotyping with valid, meaningful and diverse portrayals of LGBT people.
As PACE enters a new decade with our 11thNorth Louisiana Gay & Lesbian Film Festival (NLGLFF), we have some exciting changes ahead! We’ve learned a lot during this past decade as we’ve listened to our festival attendees, visiting filmmakers and celebrities, and organizers of the Louisiana Film Prize. We’re excited to announce some changes that we believe will allow our attendees to more fully participate in all our festival events:
- The 2019 NLGLFF will open on Thursday, September 5 and run through Sunday, September 8;
- There will be multiple special events every day;
- Our always festive reception will be Saturday night, September 7th;
- Festival passes purchased at the Robinson Film Center (and which come with most sponsorships) will allow admission to each one of our four feature films plus our Shorts program, all of which will show multiple times. The #ThrowbackThursday film will be purchased separately;
- A fully-punched festival pass will allow attendees to vote on Best Feature Film and Best Short Film as well as new award categories of Best Director, Best Performance in a Leading Role, and Best Performance in a Supporting Role.
Our film festival is the Robinson Film Center’s most successful film festival and continues to facilitate discussions ripped from today’s headlines while creating some of our own through our thought-provoking films, panels, and guest commentaries.
Watch our film festival Facebook page or our film festival website for more information on guest appearances, the opening weekend reception, festival passes, Q&As, panel discussions, summaries and trailers for all our films, and other special events.
