Don’t miss out on the queerest series in town! Each month, Queer/Art/Film invites one of New York’s most unique and homosexual artists to pick a film that’s inspired them and share it with our audience. Curated by filmmakers Adam Baran and Ira Sachs, Queer/Art/Film is intimate, provocative, inspiring… and like nothing else out there.

This summer Queer/Art/Film is excited to present “Black Summer Nights,” a celebration of queer African-American artists and their unique role in shaping American culture and history. We’ve handed the reins over to our special guest curators, filmmaker Stephen Winter and poet Pamela Sneed, who have selected four luminary African-American New York queer artists and will lead audiences in rousing and riveting post-screening discussions.
