  • "Set Me As A Seal Upon Thine Heart" is part of the 2018 ImageOut Film Festival lineup.

The 26th annual Rochester LGBT Film Festival takes place Thursday, October 4, through Sunday, October 14, and features dozens of film screenings that celebrate the world-wide cultures and stories of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people. Films include narrative features, documentaries, and a variety of shorts programs screening from Friday, October 5, through Sunday, October 14, at the Little Theatre and the Dryden Theatre.

Events kick off on Thursday, October 4, with an Eve of the Festival Party held at Arbor Loft (17 Pitkin Street) from 7 to 10 p.m. The party features snacks, Hedonist Chocolates, drink specials at a cash bar, and live music by Meg Gehman and The Influence. Admission is free for ImageOut members, volunteers, and those who have purchased a ticket to one of the films screening on Opening Night (Friday, October 5), and the party is open to everyone else for a $10 cover at the door.

Check back with us during the festival's run for preview coverage of some of the films, which we'll link in the titles below. Visit imageout.org for more information.
