Published Date Author: , May 21st, 2014

Frameline 38

Frameline38 features 214 films from 31 countries; beyond films, our lineup of special thematic programs, dynamic parties, discussions, and other exciting events brings together filmmakers, actors, producers, artists, screenwriters, and movie lovers from here in the Bay Area and all around the world.

In addition to our phenomenal Opening Night, Closing Night, Centerpiece and Showcase films, this year we’re delighted to host a special series of film screenings and panel discussions titled New Storytelling in LGBT Cinema, an exploration of the future of queer film, covering topics of digital distribution, new cinematic approaches to gay history and biography, and the growth and support of queer women filmmakers.

This program is proudly supported by the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences.Given the past year’s dramatic and disturbing changes for queer people in Russia, the Festival will shine a spotlight on LGBT Films in Today’s Russia, including two features, a shorts program, and the documentary CAMPAIGN OF HATE: RUSSIA AND GAY PROPAGANDA, which will be followed by a discussion including filmmaker Michael Lucas and out Russian American journalist Masha Gessen.

The Frameline Film Festival runs from June 19th-29th.
