Welcome To Fresno Reel Pride

From humble beginnings in a Fresno State classroom, Fresno Reel Pride has evolved into the sixth oldest – and one of the largest – gay and lesbian film festivals in the United States.

Fresno Reel Pride is a celebration of gay and lesbian cinema and is a premier cultural event in central California attracting thousands of attendees to its five-day festival of international features, documentaries and short films. 



The mission of Fresno Reel Pride is to increase the awareness of the gay and lesbian community through the exhibition of  films and videos exploring gay and lesbian themes at an annual festival in Fresno. Fresno Reel Pride, through the universal appeal of movies, works to produce a major cultural event for the entire Central Valley community designed to enhance community acceptance and understanding while adding to the diversity of a culturally rich city. 



Fresno Reel Pride is organized and produced by an all-volunteer staff. We are looking for volunteers to make our next film festival a success. For volunteer questions or to sign-up, contact Tiana Perez at volunteers@reelpride.com
