The festival will also feature a conversation with Lena Waithe, the Emmy-winning writer, producer and actor behind series and films including The Chi, Twenties and Them

Frameline executive director Allegra Madsen commented: “Film festivals are often seen as being by and for tastemakers in our industry, but Frameline deepens that perception by being by and for change-makers. Queer and trans artists don’t just influence culture, they create it. Frameline48 celebrates and platforms that tireless innovation and spirit by bringing filmmakers and works from all over the world together in the Bay Area – a place that’s historically been on the pulse of propelling queer art forward.”
