Our film series aims to promote and honor recent and historical films centered on gender and/or sexuality, as well as to bring more attention to filmmakers who actively intervene in the traditional identity politics of film production, especially women and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Each film screening is followed by a discussion hosted by faculty from the tri-campus community.
Because gender is co-presented by Notre Dame’s Gender Studies Program and Department of Film, Television, and Theatre, as well as the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies at Saint Mary’s College and the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Indiana University-South Bend.

The GlobaLGBTQ+ Film Festival
Expanding Our Lens, Diversifying Our Community
The GlobaLGBTQ+ Film Festival aims to present a diverse range of stories arising out of LGBTQ+ cultures worldwide to an engaged audience. To facilitate meaningful conversations with our audience members, each film screening is followed by a panel discussion with faculty members, students, and filmmakers.
The festival is hosted by students and faculty in the Gender Studies Program and Department of Film-Television, and Theatre, as well as Student Government’s Gender Relations Board. We collaborate with a broad spectrum of organizations at Notre Dame and in the local community in order to offer a wide-angle perspective on an expansive topic.
The 2019 festival took place November 3-10 in Notre Dame’s Browning Cinema as well as a variety of venues in South Bend. The Gender Studies Program was thrilled to co-host with several new partners, including South Bend’s LGBTQ Center, the Civil Rights Heritage Center, and the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies at Saint Mary’s College.
If you want to get involved in planning the festival, please contact Mary Celeste Kearney, Director of Gender Studies, at email@example.com.
