June 13 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm


University of Houston Downtown

An Official Event of Houston Pride Month

Our Annual Queer Film Fest Returns!

Join us at University of Houston Downtown for a Day of Cinema


Reel Pride celebrates the diversity and strength of the LGBTQ+ community. The festival will showcase films with subject matter directly relating to LGBTQ+ issues. The festival always occurs in the month of June. This event is loved by the arts lovers of Houston and surrounding areas. The film festival will showcase local and international films. There will be films showcased that are targeted from children, youth and adults. We aim to showcase the diversity of our city, state and world.

The judges of the Reel Pride festival will carefully select the films to be nominated for our awards. This fantastic event will give filmmakers opportunities to watch their film on the big screen as well as the opportunity for networking.

The winners will be announced at the event, on our website and on social media the week of the event. The selected films will have a chance to win awards such as trophies, certificates, and cash prizes starting at $100!

Reel Pride accepts films of any length and genre produced, created, directed or containing LGBTQIA+ people and content, as well as their allied communities.

Please completely fill out the FilmFreeway Entry Form. A separate entry form is required for each film being submitted. Uploaded films must be in their entirety. Trailers will not be considered for submission, however please feel free to send to our Reel Pride email address (reelpride@pridehouston.org). Trailers will be used for promotional purposes.

Rough cuts & work-in-progress are eligible for submission only if completed by last deadline.

International films will be accepted with English subtitles only.

Once payment has been received for FilmFreeway Submission, it will be marked “In Consideration.” Entrants will be notified of festival selections by the 10th of April 2020.

After your film is accepted, please email high quality digital images from your film (minimum 300dpi in a tiff or jpeg format for MAC only) to programming@frameline.org. Please also send along press-ready, password protected screener links, Electronic Press Kits, or any other publicity materials you may have (if available). High quality stills make a significant difference in press coverage for accepted films.

All entries will be reviewed by the Reel Pride Committee, who will also determine a short list of nominees for each category awarded. Once a film is submitted for entry, it may not be withdrawn.

Awards and Prizes will be determined at a later date.
