Seattle Queer Film Festival

The Seattle Queer Film Festival starts October 15 and runs through the 25th (all online).  On Sunday, October 25, CAC is serving as a community co-presenter for a package of short films called "Queering the Narrative."  The suggested watch time for this collection is 3:30 (because it is followed by a live Q&A) but the program is available to screen at any time during the festival. Student discounts are available for all festival screenings.
