The Bush films is the only consistent monthly queer film series in New York that focuses exclusively on films for and about queer women, trans, and non-binary people. We provide a platform for filmmakers and connect them with audiences that want to see themselves reflected and represented in cinema.
Because we believe that quality representation is important, the Bush Films is free and is dedicated to finding the best films by queer women, trans and non-binary people, and making them accessible to a community that is interested in the content but might have difficulty finding it on their own.
We know how much of a need there was for an inclusive space focused on queer women, trans and non-binary people interested in film and with a desire to see themselves represented in it. We decided to create the kind of community space and representation that we had been searching for. The Bush Films has grown far beyond initial expectations and become a welcoming space for our community to gather and discuss film and representation.
We are a monthly film series, we are not a film festival.
Every film that is not in English language needs to have English subtitles.
We screen short films about:
- Bisexual +
- Queer women
- Trans women
- Trans men
- Non-binary people.
Short films no longer than 30 minutes.
This is a free/donation based event.
