The 22nd Fresno Reel Pride Film Festival is less than a month away. This year, the film festival runs from Wednesday, September 14th through Sunday, September 18th.
Reel Pride is the sixth oldest gay and lesbian film festival in America. Presented in the landmark historic Art Deco Tower Theatre and the intimate Starline Lounge in Fresno’s historic Tower District, Reel Pride has matured into one of Central California’s largest cultural events. Each year with five days and over fifty films, the film festival presents movies that can’t be found in your local multiplex and appearances by filmmakers and stars, signature events, receptions and parties.
It’s Central California’s most popular gay and lesbian event: Five days of films for everyone to enjoy… a premiere cultural event in central California attracting thousands of attendees to its five-day festival of international features, documentaries, and short films.
After looking over the films to be offered this year, I can honestly say that you’ll find it difficult to remember a year in Fresno Reel Pride history that will compare to the roster of films on tap for this year. It’s a varied and well chosen festival of entertainment.
Please visit the Fresno Reel Pride Website for all the details on this year’s monumental event.
