April Networking Lunch Recap - INBA Outreach Film Festival

Wednesday’s networking lunch at Centerplace Event Center featured Scott Mailheau, Communications Coordinator for INBA and Account Executive at Thinking Cap presenting the working business plan for INBA Outreach’s film festival.

026The film festival will be the revival and rebranding of Spokane’s GLBT Film Festival which ran for 16 years, from 1998 to 2014. The new film festival will act as INBA Outreach’s primary fundraiser for the year, with all proceeds going to the nonprofit’s LGBT scholarship fund. This is a significant departure from the previous film festival organization which operated as a for-profit enterprise.

Still in the early planning stages, the INBA Outreach Board of Directors and staff have chosen the name OUT at the Movies, as the film fest’s official title. Tentatively scheduled for late October/ early November, OUT at the Movies will be a single-day festival in its inaugural year. Featured films are yet to be determined.

Funding for the LGBT film festival will come primarily from event partners and individual screening sponsors. Along with a $1000 donation from the previous film festival, STCU has donated $5000 to INBA Outreach for general use and the funds will be allocated as seed funding.

INBA Outreach is seeking film buffs and community-minded individuals who are looking to get involved in Spokane’s LGBT arts and entertainment scene. In order to guide OUT at the Movies to a bright future, the Board of Directors is asking that anyone interested join the film festival committee by emailing Sierra VanderHoogt at staff@inbachamber.org
