Queer Film is Essential!

Campaign Ends Oct. 30, 2020

With our QUEER FILM IS ESSENTIAL campaign, Inside Out aims to raise funds that will directly support LGBTQ2 filmmakers and their projects with grants and professional development programs in 2020 and 2021.

We have seen firsthand the devastating economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on independent artists. Since opening our RE:Focus Fund emergency application in May, we have seen an unprecedented increase in applicants, and we are committed to doing everything we can to ensure that we can support our filmmakers in navigating these challenges and bringing their art to life.

In addition to more than $50,000 annually issued in filmmaker grants through the RE:Focus Fund, Inside Out also annually offers the world's only LGBTQ2 feature Film Finance Forum; the Pitch, Please short film pitch competition; the year-round Short Film Mentorship Lab for first-time filmmakers, offered in 2020 in partnership with the Alliance for South Asian AIDS Prevention; and the OUTtv Documentary Financing Program.

Through supporting the QUEER FILM IS ESSENTIAL campaign, you are committing to a future for these programs and our filmmakers.

Join us in telling the world that now, more than ever, Queer Film Is Essential.
