OUT ON FILM, the Atlanta Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, is among the oldest GLBT film festivals in the U.S. Since 1988 it has showcased films and videos from around the world by, for and about the GLBT community. For years OUT ON FILM was produced by the Atlanta Film Festival 365 organization. That changed in 2009 according to Festival Director Jim Farmer who wrote: "For the first time in its long existence, Out on Film is not only gay/lesbian run and operated, but completely independent. This summer, Out on Film became an official 501(c)3 organization. And, yes, we are truly excited. Last May, Atlanta Film Festival 365 (formerly IMAGE Film and Video) decided to give Out on Film to the gay/lesbian community. For years and years, IMAGE put on both its successful Atlanta Film Festival in the spring/summer and then Out on Film in the fall... Without question, this has been the most ambitious year in the history of Out on Film...
"In October, Out on Film will be having its fall festival, and from here on out it will be every October. Our goal is to make the festival as good as it can be. Having a GLBT film festival is still every bit as important as it’s ever been. Gays and lesbians may be more on TV now and in the public consciousness, but we are no means mainstream. It’s important to have a GLBT film festival - one by, for and about the GLBT community. But the size and scope of the festival depends on our community."
Out on Film makes the movie experience more complete because movies have the ability to bring people together. Top rated films, intimate settings, audience participation and special celebrity events give movie-goers and sponsors a way to connect, a way to extend a 90-minute film into a lasting relationship.
