QDOC: PORTLAND QUEER DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL 2019

QDoc logo crop

QDoc is the only festival in the U.S. devoted exclusively to LGBTQ documentaries, and it's coming to the Hollywood Theatre this year May 2-5!

Documentaries offer a unique vehicle to creatively engage core issues of queer identity – politics, history, culture, diversity, sexuality, family, aging, and coming-out issues. Documentary as a form of expression is as vital and energetic as it has ever been, and QDoc brings the highest caliber of films – and their makers – to share with Portland audiences.
