Fall 2016 marks the 23rd annual season of the Lesbian Looks Film Series. Since 1993, LL has been screening cutting edge features, shorts, documentaries, experimental films and new media works not otherwise available to Tucson audiences. LL's From the Archives strand has also showcased classic films such as Madchen in Uniform, Desert Hearts, Word is Out, and Before Stonewall.

The first public program of what is now the Institute for LGBT Studies at the University of Arizona, Lesbian Looks has presented over two hundred fifty films to audiences drawn from campus and the Tucson community, and featured panel discussions on topics ranging from breast cancer to transgender identity and Israeli-Palestinian politics.

Lesbian Looks has hosted distinguished filmmakers Monika Treut, Su Friedrich, Elle Flanders, Greta Schiller and Andrea Weiss, film scholars Richard Dyer and Amy Villarejo, founding director of San Francisco’s Frameline Film Festival Michael Lumpkin, and Lesbian Herstory Archives founder Joan Nestle.

Co-sponsors have included over twenty departments, colleges and other university units, as well as numerous community organizations.

Over the years, Lesbian Looks has hosted events at nearly every screen on campus and throughout the Tucson community.
