Frameline48 Film Festival Celebrates LGBTQ+ Cinema and Culture

Be first to like this.

The world’s largest LGBTQ+ film festival is back and better than ever as Frameline48 returns to the Bay Area from June 19-29, 2024, with an exciting new lineup of films and events. As in prior years, Hornet remains a proud event sponsor, continuing to help amplify queer voices.

Frameline48 will host a Juneteenth Block Party on June 19, the much-anticipated opening night. This event honors Juneteenth’s historical significance and celebrates Black LGBTQ+ voices with live drag performances and community activities. It will be followed by a screening of Lil Nas X: Long Live Montero.

The festival features an impressive list of films, including full-length movies, documentaries, and shorts. Some highlights include All Shall Be Well, a poignant portrayal of an older queer couple navigating societal biases, and I Don’t Understand You, which features actors Nick Kroll and Andrew Rannells as a happily married couple jet-setting off to Italy to celebrate their anniversary. Another standout is Fallen Fruit, which follows the “naïve but charming Alex (Ramiro Batista) who returns home to Miami after a catastrophic breakup in New York City.”

In addition to film screenings, Frameline48 will feature various special events. Among these events is a live conversation with comedian, author, and activist Alok Vaid-Menon, accompanied by screenings of their related documentaries Alok and There Are Things To Do.

If you can’t make it to the Bay Area, many of the Frameline48 films will be available to stream from June 24-30. You can find more film schedules and ticketing information by visiting the Frameline48 website.
