On the weekend of April 26, 2024, the Newark LGBTQ Community Center, along with community partners, hosts the second annual Newark LGBTQ Film Festival.

This queer film festival is the first of its kind in the city of Newark and the state of NJ to focus on LGBTQIA+ BIPOC film makers, directors, and actors, specifically those from Newark and the surrounding areas. The mission of the festival is to amplify the voices, vision and works of film that would otherwise struggle to find a mainstream audience but have a significant impact in raising awareness around lives and issues of queer people and queer communities of color. This event will bring people together while celebrating the rich history and bright future of artistic contributions from the LGBTQIA+ BIPOC community in Newark and beyond.

Location: Billy Johnson Auditorium
