Celebrating its 27th anniversary, BENT-Sacramento International LGBTQ Film Festival is a spectacular community and cultural event consisting of three days of LGBTQ film, local food, beer, wine and live entertainment. BENT Film Fest takes place Friday through Sunday, October 12-14, 2018, at the Crest Theatre (1013 K Street) in downtown Sacramento. BENT Film Fest takes place in October each year coinciding with the national LGBTQ History Month, an observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, and the history of gay rights.
What hasn’t changed, however, is the mission of the festival to provide the community some of the best LGBTQ films each year. Six feature-length films and 18 short films will be showcased, which range from expectation-shattering, heart-wrenching, sexually fluid, to just plain steamy. Numerous filmmakers and special guests are expected to attend the Festival.
BENT Film Fest opens this year on Friday, October 12 with two feature presentations:
