Frameline is one of the world’s oldest queer film festivals, beginning out of a San Francisco storefront in 1976, and it’s now one of the largest such festivals in the US. After COVID-19 forced a virtual festival in 2020, delayed from its usual Pride Month time slot to September, the festival is returning with a hybrid format this year. In-person screenings will be taking place June 10 through June 27, with an online component running as well beginning June 17. Films in the program include Ailey, a documentary portrait of choreographer Alvin Ailey, the first few episodes of the new season of HBO’s skater show Betty, and No Straight Lines, a look at the role comics and zines have played in queer culture.
Ticket prices vary based on venue. Individual films can be purchased to view online for $10 ($9 for seniors, students, and those with disabilities, or $8 for members). An all-access pass to stream films can be purchased for $115 ($95 for members).
