The largest LGBTQ+ film festival in the world just announced its complete program.
Frameline46, which takes place June 16-26, will feature more than 125 films from over 30 countries.
The festival kicks off with the West Coast premiere of Prime Video's A League of Their Own and a panel with cast and creators moderated by The Advocate's editor in chief, Tracy E. Gilchrist. The screening and talk will be followed by an opening night gala at Terra Gallery in San Francisco.
It will also include 17 world premieres, eight North American premieres, five U.S. premieres, 28 West Coast premieres, and 44 San Francisco Bay Area premieres, and spans narrative features, documentaries, episodics, and shorts programs, according to a press release.
This year's theme is "The Coast Is Queer," and the festival will take place at theaters and other venues across the San Francisco Bay Area. Those venues include the Castro Theatre, Roxie Theater, SFMOMA, AMC Kabuki, and Proxy in San Francisco, and the New Parkway Theater in Oakland.
"We are beyond excited to welcome cinephiles back to in-person screenings at San Francisco's historic Castro Theatre -- which celebrates its 100th birthday during the festival -- as well as other venues around the Bay Area," Frameline executive director James Woolley said in the release. "It is our hope that this year's festival will remind us of the importance of community and connection, as well as continue to inspire change through film."
Tickets to the festival are on sale now and are available at Frameline.org. The festival will also have a national streaming encorethatwill be for those outside of the San Francisco Bay Area.
"This year's festival builds on Frameline's long-standing commitment to celebrate and amplify queer voices," Frameline director of programming Allegra Madsen said."Exploring themes ranging from queer family histories to confronting the future with a world in a state of flux, the diverse lineup of films shed light on what it means to be queer around the globe."
