Greeting from Chennai Dost!

As a community initiative, Chennai Rainbow Film Festival(CRFF) aims to provide a venue for screening the works of established and emerging gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer video and film makers or others who portray our community in a positive and affirmative light; ans also to bring noteworthy films by local, national and international talent to Front Range audiences, including films that may not otherwise see distribution in area theaters; and to build GLBTQ community and counter issues of invisibility and misinformation by providing a forum for viewing films that depict our lives and loves, and for discussing the films in a social and political context. The Chennai Rainbow (LGBT) Film Festival showcases the best LGBT films which are internationally acclaimed works that fosters diversity throughout the world.

Chennai Rainbow Film Festival believes that the shared experience of cinema is a form of activism that has the power to connect people across borders and boundaries of all description. The festival is curated and based on thematic sections, some of which change every year to reflect issues that are gripping the world’s – and filmmakers’- imagination.

It also explores a wide variety of issues and situations involving the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer communities. The films we choose are designed to educate, entertain and enlighten everyone; challenge and motivate us. We hope we can participate in changing the world.We’re motivated by a deep desire to share the beautiful and important art we find in GLBTQ cinema. The films we bring to Boulder explore what it means to be gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer across ethnic, nationality, class, and racial lines. In a world where we’re largely banned from public recognition, openly displaying the images of GLBTQ people is a political act. The big screen is one way we can do this.
