ABOUT THE SERIES:

Queer Rhapsody, a community-led film series, centers the joy, healing, and narrative reinvention of contemporary LGBTQIA+ cinema. Showcasing a kaleidoscope of offerings: from features poised to achieve cult status, short-form experimental storytelling as alchemical guides, vanguard documentaries blazing a path for narrative change, and international films primed to accompany you on your next journey of self-discovery. Created to connect the vibrant Los Angeles queer film community by centering liberatory narratives, 15 shorts and feature screening programs anchored by five iconic venues and driven by a dedicated independent queer programming team, this city-wide collaboration aims to kindle a bright, hot summertime celebration of queer voices at its heart in service to belonging and igniting creative community connection across Los Angeles.

The Queer Rhapsody LGBTQIA+ film series is organized by the UCLA Film & Television Archive, with support from the Andrew J. Kuehn, Jr. Foundation and the Robert Gore Rifkind Foundation.
