Frameline’s mission is to change the world through the power of queer cinema. As a media arts nonprofit, Frameline’s programs connect filmmakers and audiences in the Bay Area and around the world. Founded in 1977, the San Francisco International LGBTQ Film Festival is the longest-running, largest and most widely recognized LGBTQ film exhibition event in the world.
Frameline’s annual June film festival depends on the support of hundreds of volunteers. Frameline also invites volunteers to support it’s year round programming, including the Youth in Motion program, which provides free LGBTQ films and curriculum guides to Genders & Sexualities Alliances (also known as Gay-Straight Alliances) and educators in schools nationwide.
