North Carolina Gay + Lesbian Film Festival
About the Festival
The North Carolina Gay + Lesbian Film Festival (NCGLFF) is the second largest gay, lesbian and transgender film festival in the Southeast, attracting thousands of patrons yearly. Since its beginning in 1995, the Festival has featured a diverse array of shorts, documentaries and feature films. The Durham Convention and Visitors Bureau named the NCGLFF a Signature Event for Durham, the highest honor bestowed on a cultural event or attraction by the organization.
The NCGLFF celebrates a worldwide glimpse of today's gay, lesbian and transgender life, helps bring the community together and features entertaining and sophisticated films and filmmaking.
We are now accepting film submissions for the North Carolina Gay & Lesbian Film Festival at FilmFreeWay.
