Seattle PrideFest has been busy. The nascent non-profit organization behind their wildly successful, eponymous, June gathering recently announced the latest addition to their slew of Pride activities on offer: the Seattle PrideFest Film Film Festival. The Festival is part of PrideFest’s push for more arts and cultural programming, and will offer both free and paid screenings of LGBT related movies at several theaters around Capitol Hill. It is being produced in partnership with both SIFF’s Egyptian Theatre, as well as Three Dollar Bill Cinema, the producers of Seattle’s Gay & Lesbian Film Festival.
Showings include queer classics such as Paris is Burning and John Waters’ Hairspray, as well as Golden Globe nominee Pride, a film memorializing U.K. gay activists and their work helping miners during a 1984 National Union of Mineworkers strike. Tickets for the festival go on sale Friday, May 15.
