Reel Affirmations Film Festival is Washington DC’s International LGBTQ+ Film Festival and Monthly Film Series.  

Washington D.C.’s International LGBTQ+ Film Festival returns for its 29th year In October 2022!

The film festival will present several days of NEW AND EXCITING international, documentary, short and feature films

from all over the world to Washington DC

Films encompassing many genres including comedy, drama, romance and documentary.

Films that will make us laugh, cry, relate, ponder, wonder and nod our heads in understanding and empathy.

Films highlighting the humor, the humanity and the struggles that we all have in common.

We have lived through extraordinary times but we will not let that stop us from supporting and uplifting our LGBTQ+ Creatives by sharing and celebrating LGBTQ+ Lifestories on Film.
