Festival Code of Conduct

Frameline's mission is to change the world through the power of LGBTQ+ media. Our goal is to connect filmmakers and audiences in the Bay Area and around the world; and we value the creative expression, cultural diversity, and varied perspectives that make up our community.

While we appreciate dialogues and differing opinions at the Festival, we will not tolerate harassment, discrimination, or abusive behavior. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Offensive comments related to race, ethnicity, nationality, citizenship status, gender identity and/or expression, sexuality, physical appearance, religion, ability, age, or economic background.
  • Violence of any kind, including verbal or physical intimidation, sexual harassment or non-consensual physical interaction.
  • Ongoing disruption of Frameline events.

All Frameline audience participants, volunteers, staff, and board members are expected to follow this Code of Conduct for the entirety of all Frameline screenings and events and in all Frameline virtual spaces.

Frameline reserves the right to revoke tickets, passes, and access to Frameline events without notice or refund, for any action that violates this Code of Conduct. Any individual who witnesses or experiences a violation of this Code of Conduct should contact a Frameline staff member immediately. If a Frameline staff member is not present, contact
