LGBTQIA Documentary Film at ArtServe October 11
Just in time for National Coming Out Day on October 11, ArtServe will host a screening of a 20-minute black and white documentary film entitled “Open Dialogues: Stories from the LGBTQ Community” that will be followed by a panel discussion.
Produced by the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, the film captures the diverse coming-out narratives of seven Broward County residents who took part in on-camera interviews. Directed by Freddy Rodriguez and produced by the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, “Open Dialogues” explores how the LGBTQ community is marginalized among families, schools, churches and public spaces – and how individuals interviewed for the film learned to empower themselves in these spaces.
