Founded in 1988, NewFest is New York’s largest presenter of LGBTQ+ film & media and its 32nd edition will take place October 16-27, 2020, with the majority of the 120+ new films accessible online to ticket holders NATIONWIDE in the US. An important fact to note as most other Film Festivals we have covered have one been available in their home states.
There are also Special events include a Queer Trivia Night hosted by Rupaul’s Drag Race alum Jackie Cox; a Virtual Dance Party in partnership with House of Yes to close out My Girl Friday, a selection of films by and about women, women-identifying, and non-binary members of the queer community; as well as the previously announced all trans live reading of BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN to celebrate the film’s 15th anniversary. All Panels will stream for free on NewFest’s YouTube and Facebook channels.
