OutSouth Queer Film Festival
The inaugural OutSouth Queer Film Festival, one of the largest queer film festivals in the United States, will be held online only in 2020. Formerly known as the North Carolina Gay + Lesbian Film Festival (NCGLFF), OutSouth will make its debut with a 41-film lineup of short and feature films available for online viewing only from November 13 to 19.
Individual film tickets and a limited number of All-Access Passes for OutSouth are on sale now at The Carolina Theatre’s website. Tickets to individual film viewings are $12 plus tax and fees. All Access Passes, which enable guests to view all 11 film programs of the festival, cost $90 plus tax and fees.
Purchasers will have 72 hours to watch films after buying them. Films purchased in advance of the film festival will unlock for viewing on November 13. No tickets or passes will be sold through The Carolina Theatre Box Office.
Long regarded as a signature Durham event, OutSouth was postponed twice due to the pandemic by its producer, The Carolina Theatre of Durham Inc. The nonprofit that manages the host venue of the festival made the decision to move the event to a virtual cinema format and extend the viewing window to November 19 after surveying past guests, volunteers and LGBTQIA community members in late September.
