BENT – Sacramento LGBTQ Film Festival

BENT – Sacramento LGBTQ Film Festival

About Us

After 26 years as the Sacramento International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival (SIGLFF), we’ve changed our name to BENT.

BENT is not an acronym.
BENT is not straight.
BENT is queer (British).
BENT is an inclination or natural talent.
BENT is determined to do something.

What we have not changed is our mission to bring you the best in LGBTQ films from around the world. Films that highlight the rich diversity, intricacies, and passions that make up our LGBTQ community. We are proud of our 27-year history of sharing LGBTQ culture and promoting awareness to the greater Sacramento area through an annual 3-day film festival and other cultural activities throughout the year.

Join us at the historic Crest Theater in downtown Sacramento, CA, on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, October 12, 13, 14, 2018 for some of the best queer cinema of 2018.
