Stamped LGBTQ Film Festival Announces New Festival Dates for 2020

Pensacola’s annual event featuring lesbian, gay, bi, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) films and filmmakers from across the globe—has announced the rescheduling of the 2020 festival to November 11–15, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’ve made the difficult decision to reschedule our festival until November to ensure the health and safety of our attendees, our board, our friends and family,” said David Newton, Board President. “We are still just as excited and continue our planning for a phenomenal and creative festival.  The new dates will allow us to enjoy great films and to celebrate all our community, while keeping a safe and healthy environment for everyone.”

The festival, originally slated for August, will feature a varied lineup of LGBTQ short films, documentaries and full-length films. In its ninth year, Stamped will offer films, Q&As, and a fun family day with activities for all ages.

“In addition to the fest activities people have come to know and love, our board is committed to creating new and exciting elements for this year’s event,” added Newton.
