PRIDE is Bloomington's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer film festival. The Festival is an exuberant celebration of LGBTQ communities and a Bloomington tradition drawing film fams from far and wide. Held at Bloomington's historic Buskirk-Chumley Theater, the festival features full-length and short films from all over the world, live performance, discussions with scholars and filmmakers, and an unbelievably fabulous Saturday night dance party.

History

The PRIDE Film Festival is a cinematic celebration of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community hosted and presented by the historic Buskirk-Chumley Theater. Originally created in 2004, the Festival featured short films over two days. The second year brought nearly 1200 people and featured films from all over the world. In 2006 more than 20 movies were shown to 1,500 people over three days. A high energy dance party, panel discussion, art exhibit at the Kinsey Institute and a live performance by the Quarryland Men’s Chorus were also added in 2006.

Inspiring community support and nearly sold-out screenings prompted the Herald Times, Bloomington’s largest newspaper to say, "Give it a few more years until PRIDE becomes the Cannes or Toronto of the Midwest."
