Damn These Heels is Coming to Your Living Room

Damn These Heels Queer Film Festival returns July 10-19, 2020 for our 17th year, this year with a twist – The Festival is coming to your living room! Films, Q&As, conversations, and more will be held online through our streaming platform. This means less worry about films overlapping, because you can watch them on your own schedule throughout the Festival.Films are available for the entire Festival with the exception of a special one-time screening of Holy Trinity. Tickets and passes are on sale now.

The annual festival explores LGBTQ issues, ideas, and art through showcasing dramatic and documentary films from around the world. Damn These Heels remains a community focused, grassroots, locally-produced festival with strong community partnerships. While no formalwear is required for “attending” the virtual event, heels are encouraged to feel the festival vibe at home.

New This Year
The Festival is online this year. We are using a streaming platform that has been designed for festivals like ours, which means that it will be user-friendly. If you haven’t streamed from your computer to your TV before but want to participate in the festival, please reach out to us. We are committed to helping you navigate the online streaming platform to make your experience as seamless and enjoyable as possible

A note about pricing: while the prices may look similar to last year, what’s different is that the price is really a householder price. This means one pass can provide everyone in your household access to enjoy films together without the need to purchase individual tickets & passes. Aside from Damn These Heels Drive-In, you can stream movies at times most convenient to you, on your own schedule – no movies will compete for your attention!

All events are virtual/streaming events except for our Pop-up Drive-In! Most films are available throughout the Festival, films that have limited availability are marked.
