Frameline Gears Up For 40th Annual LGBT Film Festival


Frameline 40, San Francisco’s long-running LGBTQ film festival, is set to return next month for its 40th season. Running from June 16th to 26th, it will bring a total of 155 films, from 24 countries, to local audiences, featuring a mix of “hard–hitting social justice documentaries, dark and romantic comedies, impressive, twisted narratives, and scintillating shorts,” according to Frameline Executive Director Frances Wallace.

This year’s festival will take place at various Bay Area venues, but it kicks off at the Castro Theatre with a 7pm screening of the documentary Kiki. The film, which will be followed by an opening gala, focuses on the lives of LGBTQ youth of color who perform in the ballroom subculture which was first introduced to audiences two decades ago, in the film Paris Is Burning.
