JUNE 9 – 11, 2023
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society (RBFS) is proud to present the 2023 PRIDE Film Festival (formerly known as Delaware LGBTQ+ CINE-brations Festival) in partnership with CAMP Rehoboth. Eight films to include documentaries and features along with a must-see block of shorts will be presented over three days (June 9 - 11) at the Society’s Cinema Art Theater in Lewes.
Confirmed film titles include KOKOMO CITY, HORSEPLAY and PASSAGES. The Society will also host a late-night special feature of the film classic, ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW for festival moviegoer’s and a special student rate. Participants can expect other social gatherings in celebration of the Festival and PRIDE Month.
“We are very excited to bring the PRIDE Film Festival back to our community, and we’re pleased to partner with Rehoboth Beach Film Society to promote LGBTQ+ arts here,” said CAMP Rehoboth Interim Director Lisa Evans.
Be sure to check the website, www.RehobothFilm.com for updated film announcements and special social events. We hope that you will join us and experience all that this year’s PRIDE Film Festival has to offer at the Cinema Art Theater in Lewes (behind the Wawa)!
The Society felt strongly about expanding the audience from what was the first LGBTQ+ festival in the State of Delaware back in 2016. Updating the name of the Festival and focusing on PRIDE month made sense for 2023 relaunch. Why would we not celebrate as any other U.S. city with our local patrons", stated Executive Director, Helen Chamberlin.
Admission is $12 per screening and a special student rate for the late-night special feature. Patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets online at RehobothFilm.com. If seats are available, tickets will be available for sale, starting 30 minutes prior to each screening. Please note that tickets are non-refundable and there will be no exchanges.
