Reel Affirmations Film Festival is Washington DC’s International LGBTQ Film Festival and Monthly Film Series.  Our Annual film festival, from OCTOBER 19TH TO 22ND AT THE GALA HISPANIC THEATER, brings several days of NEW AND EXCITING international, documentary, short and feature films from all over the world to Washington as well as panel discussions, filmmaker Q&A and celebrations.
