Support independent LGBTQ film in Charlotte

Reel Out Charlotte, the Queen City’s annual LGBTQ Film Festival, was first established in 2009. Since 2014, Reel Out Charlotte has been a program of Charlotte Pride and, in anticipation of the festival’s tenth annual event in 2018, changed its named from the GayCharlotte Film Festival to Reel Out Charlotte in 2017. Our mission is to entertain, enlighten, and build valuable bridges of understanding, support, and acceptance within and between the LGBTQ and ally communities in the Charlotte region.

Today, the Reel Out Charlotte is one of region’s premiere arts and cultural events, which has brought thousands of attendees together to celebrate the artistic, cultural, and historical contributions of LGBTQ and ally individuals, all through the power of film. Each year, we work to strengthen our program by expanding the diversity and subject matter of the films we show. In addition, to enhance the overall experience for film goers, we have introduced new features to engage our community, including our new audience awards and free admission events to educational film screenings and panel discussions.

All of this is made possible thanks to the generous support of sponsors like you.
