BENT – Sacramento LGBTQ Film Festival

BENT – Sacramento LGBTQ Film Festival


Bent is committed to bringing quality, contemporary film/video programming of our diverse LGBTQ community to the greater Sacramento area through an annual film festival and other related activities.

We are proud to be Sacramento's oldest continuous Film Festival. This year we will be celebrating our 29th installment. It is through the generous support of our community, with their time and donations that we attribute our success. Our programming is committed to screening films that show all of our diverse community. With continued support from the community, we have reaffirmed our commitment to supporting Sacramento LGBTQ organizations and local filmmakers.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation or becoming a volunteer!

We are looking for volunteers who have a passion for film and community service; who are dependable and are willing to volunteer their time and services. Services that are provided in-house are extremely important for a non-profit working with a tight budget. The more services we can provide in-house, the more our organization can grow and aid in our mission to promote cultural events and support local artists. We are also seeking board members who have non-profit, grant writing, marketing and fundraising experience. 

BENT is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (TID 94-3328744)
