b'WELCOME TO FILMOUTSAN DIEGO 2022!THANK YOU FOR JOINING US FOR OUR22 NDANNUAL LGBTQ FILM FESTIVAL CELEBRATION IN SAN DIEGO!Throughout the past two decades, this organization has remained steadfast in ensuring San Diego will always have an outlet to view and experience LGBTQ cinema . Not only with our yearly festival, but also with our Special Event Screenings as well as co-presenting LGBTQ films at most of our fellow film festivals in San Diego . The selfless commitment of the individuals who comprise our Board of Directors, our sponsors, our volunteers and our faithful audience has allowed us to exist as a strong and thriving non-profit organization . The FilmOut San Diego Film Festival is a time when our community comes together and shares in a collective film-going experiencethis is something we are truly grateful to provide for our patrons .In our 22 years, FilmOut San Diego has brought hundreds of LGBTQ films to San Diego, many of which may not otherwise have been seen by local audiences . This year, we will feature dozens of films from the U .S . and around the world . We have dozens of Premieres, and favorites from Sundance, SXSW & Berlinale Film Festivals, Q&As with filmmakers & talent, and fantastic Opening/Closing Night parties . Of course, this effort would not have been possible without the generosity of the individuals, organizations and businesses that are also committed to this cause . Please be sure to patronize their establishments and organizations . As we embark on our upcoming 23rd seasonwe will continue to strive for board diversity, fundraising opportunities and ways to cultivate more sponsorships . We will also give back to the community by hiring interns to offer valuable film festival experience as we continue to search for quality LGBTQ films . Thank you and we hope you enjoy our 22nd Annual LGBTQ Film Festival .
