The CinemaQ Film Fest returns for a four-day film fest this August with a variety of short- and feature-length films that celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.
Opening night kicks off Aug. 11 at Sie FilmCenter at 7 p.m. with a double feature of “The Sixth Reel” and “Psycho Beach Party.” “The Sixth Reel” is about a group of collectors trying to return the last reel of a classic film before it’s lost forever. “Psycho Beach Party” follows a teen tomboy with several personalities trying to fit in with Malibu surfers.
Friday, Aug. 12 continues with another double header of “Jeannette,” the story of a queer single mom who survived the Pulse Nightclub shooting, and “You Can Live Forever,” a lesbian teen who is sent to live with Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Saturday, Aug. 13 is a day full of films from “Unidentified Objects” to “Mama Bears.” The Shorts Program begins at 4:45 p.m. featuring a handful of films created by artists around the world.
The film fest wraps up Sunday, Aug. 14 with four additional films.
