Frameline (San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival)

Since 1976, the San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival (a.k.a. Frameline, the sponsoring organization) has presented the best in queer cinema. Narrative and documentary features, programs of narrative and documentary shorts, foreign films, animation, and gala events are among the typical offerings. Every year, a Frameline Award is presented, to talents like Gregg Araki, Rose Troche, and François Ozon. The Castro Theatre is always a venue (natch), with the Roxie, Victoria, and Parkway often in the mix. For more information, go to
