FilmOut San Diego

will mark its 14th year as the area’s premier LGBT film festival this year. During the five-day film festival nearly 40 films will be screened at the historic Birch North Park Theatre. The festival will take place

Wednesday, May 30 through Sunday, June 3.

The mission of FilmOut San Diego is to enlighten, educate, and entertain the communities of San Diego County and beyond through the exhibition of LGBT-themed films. FilmOut San Diego seeks to recognize, promote, celebrate and support the important diverse artistic contributions LGBT filmmakers make to the community

“There is something for everyone at FilmOut. Most all genres are well represented and no, you don’t have to be only LGBT to enjoy the majority of these films,” McQuiggan says. In addition to the films mentioned above, there are also 14 West Coast premieres being featured.

Filmmakers and talent representing more than half of the films are planning to attend the festival and will participate in audience Q&As after their respective screenings. For additional diversity, the festival partners each year with the San Diego Asian Film Festival, San Diego Jewish Film Festival and San Diego Latino Film Festival. The festival also receives financial support from the City of San Diego, which is provided in part by the Commission for Arts and Culture.

Co-Presented By: CICA

Director: Thom Fitzgerald, 93min, Canada. This romantic road movie stars Oscar®-winning actresses Olympia Dukakis (Moonstruck) and Brenda Fricker (My Left Foot) as Stella and Dot, an aging couple who escape from a nursing home in Maine and drive to Nova Scotia on a quest to be legally married. Stella and Dot have been together for 31 years and have faithfully accompanied one another through life’s ups and downs.


This Theatre represents the culmination of years of planning and dedication by the North Park community, the City of San Diego, developer Bud Fischer, and Lyric OperA San Diego. 

The vibrant Theatre venue truly reflects the diversity of the community in which it is located. Facility users include professional performing arts organizations, schools and various non-profit groups.

The North Park Theatre was built in 1928 and is the only theatre of its size in San Diego County (730 seats) featuring a fly-loft for legitimate live theater productions, a full-size movable orchestra pit and a projection room for motion picture exhibition.
