The Level Ground Festival started as a student-run film festival in 2013. It was the world’s first faith-based LGBT film festival. Since then Level Ground has hosted 25 days of festival programming in six cities around the country and we have expanded as a full film and arts festival.
The Level Ground Festival is a one-of-a-kind experience that integrates the best, most interesting aspects of an educational conference, an art exhibit, and a film festival, all with an interactive storytelling foundation. Our hope is that art inspires empathy, creates a listening space, and cultivates a better way of speaking with one another across our differences and disagreements.
Each Level Ground Festival is specially curated to include a diversity of film screenings, live music, dance, and theater performances, visual art exhibits, catered meals, exclusive interviews, workshops, stand-up comedy, live podcasts, and workshops for the purpose of elevating the public discourse around the otherwise polarizing topics of gender identity and human sexuality.
The Level Ground Festival draws a unique audience that reflects the full spectrum of religious (and non-religious) beliefs, gender identities, and sexual orientations. All denominations, theologies, beliefs, races, and ages are welcome.
