Photos: Out on Film brings festival back to the big screen

Add this share
After a pandemic-sized pivot in 2020 that went virtual, Atlanta’s LGBTQ film festival returned to Midtown Art Cinema and Out Front Theatre for 2021.

Our gallery below finds Friday festival goers between two Out on Film selections. In addition to popcorn and candy, masks were the order of the day.

Out on Film also streams its films online after they screen in-person. Here are Out on Film selections already online now, plus plans for the rest of the week.

Visit Out on Film online for a full schedule, and find our top picks in this week’s Q ATLus magazine.
