Painting the Spectrum is the Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination's (SASOD Guyana) LGBTQ+ film festival in Georgetown, Guyana. Painting the Spectrum has been running as a community event for the past 13 years, showing both short and feature films.
It aims to both offer a safe space for the LGBTQ+ community in Guyana to interact and communicate, and to educate the general public by presenting and normalizing queer-themed films, which are almost never screened in mainstream cinemas in Guyana.
The Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination (SASOD) is an international award-winning, 15-year old, human rights movement and organization, leading change, educating and serving communities, to end discrimination based on sexuality and gender in Guyana.
We are accepting both LGBTQ+ shorts and feature films. All films in languages other than English must be subtitled in English.
