Three Dollar Bill Cinema enriches, strengthens, and connects diverse communities by supporting queer film and by producing the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival and other events.
The festival has been a part of the Greater Seattle queer community and beyond since 1996 and has become the largest festival of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. The festival has garnered national recognition for showcasing extraordinary and award-winning work including the Northwest premiere of Transamerica and the Seattle premiere of Shortbus. The festival is also an important venue in the local Seattle film scene, and inspires members of our community to express their creativity through film and video.
Three Dollar Bill's other programs include:
Translations: The Seattle Transgender Film Festival
Spring Film Series featuring vintage, hard-to-find, rarely-screened queer films
Three Dollar Bill Outdoor Cinema at Cal Anderson Park and
Cineoke! a monthly sing along to your favorite numbers from American musicals, cult classics and foreign hits.
