2019 Film Festival Information

The Tampa Bay International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival continues to celebrate our renewed focus on both sides of the Bay in 2019.  During this 30th year we are excited at the opportunity to continue to bring unity between both Hillsborough and Pinellas counties within the CommUNITY.

We look forward to welcoming back beloved guests from over the years and prepare for the best LGBTQ+ festival films, parties and festival goodness ever - as we commemorate this year's festival beginning October 4th running through October 12th 2019!

The 2019 Launch Party!  will be held on Thursday, September 12th, 2019, at Rialto Theatre to open this year's 30th annual festival.

Day-of-Show Tickets

Only available for purchase at the appropriate theater’s box office beginning a minimum of thirty minutes prior to the first screening of the day.

Will Call

Tickets held at Will Call will be available at the theater ONLY on the day of that screening. Will Call will open thirty minutes prior to the first screening of the day at each venue. If you miss the first screening for which you have Will Call tickets, we’ll hold your tickets at the theater where your next screening is taking place (and so on).

Only those people listed on the ticket order will be allowed to pick up Will Call tickets. Please bring a valid photo ID so our Will Call volunteers can make sure you get the proper tickets.

Sold Out?

You might still get in! When advance tickets are no longer available, a separate Rush Line will form outside the venue, anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour prior to the screening. As soon as the number of unoccupied seats has been determined, typically a few minutes before showtime, those tickets will be sold to individuals in the Rush Line.
