Reel Q Presents: “Reel Stories”
**All screenings take place at Alphabet City (40 W North Ave.) are free and open to the public**
Reel Stories is an international film series created by Reel Q Film Festival as a way of introducing new audiences to LGBTQ+ films and stories from around the world. Screenings focus on issues important to our community, such as: youth, gender identity, adoption, international struggles and accomplishments, and hate crimes against our community.
Reel Stories has allowed Reel Q Film Festival to work with many fantastic local non-profit organizations, such as: City of Asylum, Café Con Leche, Black Pride, JFILM, The Gay & Lesbian Community Center and Silk Screen Film Festival (to name a few) and tell the stories of artists who are changing their communities through encouraging a greater visibility of diverse populations into the mainstream discourse.
Reel Stories starts March 10 through August 2017. Please check out our website at: www.reelq.org/events for more information on movie show times, as well as guest artists and post-screening panel discussions.
