Welcome, Sonoma County, to OUTwatch, Wine Country’s LGBTQI Film Festival!

OUTwatch is committed to bringing the BEST in LGBTQI Films to North of the Bay. We are excited this year to bring wonderful films to the screen, both narratives and documentaries. You’ll want to see them all. This is our fifth year of bringing films to you. We started in 2012 with a “Day of LGBTQI Films”, and have grown over the past 4 years into a vibrant Sonoma County Festival. We want YOU to join us!

Films are more than merely entertainment. They bring us together, inform us and remind us of the beautiful diversity that our community has to offer. We hope you find the OUTwatch slate of films do all of that for you.
