Out On Film is an 8-day cinematic journey of our lives, our culture and our identity.

These are our stories.

Stories of how we live, how we love, how we laugh, and how we grieve. Stories that chronicle our history, our struggles, our present, and how we still fight today for our rights, our freedom, and our lives.

Out On Film is a week for us to experience our stories as a community - to sit together and watch our lives unfold.

Out On Film is also a week long celebration of our storytellers. These are our brothers and sisters. Artists whose voice are our voices.

Come find out why Out On Film is so important to our community. Spend the week with us and celebrate your pride, your experience, your life.

One of the oldest LGBT film festivals in the country, Atlanta's Out On Film is dedicated to supporting the exhibition of LGBT film and video art forms. A non-profit, tax-exempt 501c3 organization, Out On Film was created in 1987 to inform, entertain, educate, and enrich the regional LGBT community by recognizing the creative work of these artists and professionals, many with local connections. Out On Film's popularity is accomplished in part by offering multi-racial and multi-cultural films, and over the years has been recognized locally, nationally, and globally for showcasing films by, for, and about the LGBT community. 

The real value to fans and movie-goers is the sense of kinship the event creates, offering an environment that focuses on fellowship, diversity and mutual identity that the community looks forward to year after year. Out On Film is a real positive force for local movie-goers, spotlighting emerging talent, creating community between filmmakers and audiences, and offering a forum for stories that reflect and often transform LGBT lives.

Out On Film makes the movie experience more complete because movies have the ability to bring people together. Top rated films, intimate settings, audience participation and special celebrity events give movie-goers and sponsors a way to connect, a way to extend a 90-minute film into a lasting relationship.
