AfterEllen.com’s Guide to LGBT Film Festivals

Looking for a handy guide to LGBT film festivals? Look no further. Here is our guide to the feature films about lesbians and bisexual women that will be screening at several of the fests this year, as well as the 2007 festivals listed chronologically (by the time you read this, some of them may have already wrapped). If we’ve missed a festival or a feature, please drop us a line at comments@afterellen.com, and we’ll add them when we have the opportunity.

Please note: Short films will not be included, as there are simply too many of them to keep track of. We will add feature-length documentaries if time permits.
