The world's longest-running and largest showcase of queer cinema announced that the Frameline44 Festival, previously postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will be held virtually September 17-27, 2020.

"The success of our virtual Pride Showcase showed that we could translate the Frameline Festival experience to a digital format," said James Woolley, Frameline Executive Director. "We're thrilled to finally announce the new dates for the full Frameline44 Festival and have the opportunity to celebrate the power of queer cinema with not one, but two virtual events this year."

"We can't wait to announce the exciting roster of films that will make up the long-awaited Frameline44 Festival," said Paul Struthers, Director of Exhibition and Programming. "The lineup will include thirty features and six shorts programs, showcasing the best new queer films from around the world."

The full schedule of online screenings, and special events at outdoor drive-in theaters, will be announced on Tuesday, August 25, and tickets will also be available that day.
