Martha’s Vineyard Film Center, Vineyard Haven, MA.

The 3rd Annual Spectrum (LGBTQ+) Film Festival opens Thursday, April 25-28, 2019

The Martha’s Vineyard Film Society is pleased to announce the line-up for the 3rd Annual Spectrum Film Festival. Spectrum is a four-day film festival that presents a world perspective on LGBTQ+ stories, people, and issues through a variety of films and includes guest speakers, discussions,  and a special event for LGBTQ+ youth. The 2019 SPECTRUM Film Festival will be held at the Martha’s Vineyard Film Center in Vineyard Haven from Thursday, April 25th, 2018 through Sunday, April 28th, 2019.

The first and only festival of its kind on the Vineyard, the SPECTRUM Film Festival adds to the Film Society’s consistent efforts to broach subject matter not usually covered by major Hollywood motion pictures. The Festival draws moviegoers from the Cape Cod & Islands as well as the greater Boston area.

Following the theme implied by the name of the festival– “Spectrum” or ‘Wide-Ranging’–  the films we show at the SPECTRUM Film Festival are wide-ranging, indeed. They originate from various countries; cover gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender story-lines; combine comedy, drama, romance, documentary genres in both short and full-length formats; and focus on a variety of topics including legal matters, aging, parent-child relationships, religion, cultural changes, illness, and suicide.
