All New, Reel Q Pittsburgh's Lgbt Film Festival Gets New Name, New Venue


Vancheri, Barbara, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pittsburgh, PA)


New name, different venue, same mission.

Reel Q is the new moniker for the Pittsburgh International LGBT Film Festival, which starts Friday and concludes Oct. 21 at the Harris Theater, 809 Liberty Ave., Downtown.

The festival, now in its 27th year, is the sixth oldest such festival in the world and fifth oldest in North America. Designed to present a mix of features, documentaries, shorts and community events, the festival was renamed to reflect "the entire LGBT community as well as our straight allies," says executive director Mitchell Leib.

Admission to opening night film "Cloudburst" ($25) includes a party at nearby Peirce Studio and the closing night ticket ($15) provides entry to "Love or Whatever" and party at Cruze Bar, 1600 Smallman St.

The festival also offers three passes: $125 Diva Pass provides admission for one person to all films, including opening and closing night events; $70 Screen Queen Pass, 10 tickets (opening and closing not included); and $45 Cheap Thrills Pass, six tickets (opening and closing not included).

Passes and party packages can be purchased at ReelQ.org or Banner Coin Exchange, 347 Fourth Ave., Downtown. General admission tickets, $9, will be sold only at the Harris on the day of the film.
